How carpet cleaning reduces asthma and allergies

The U.S. EPA reports that Americans spend nearly 90 percent of their time indoors which means that indoor air quality is of the utmost importance.

Many urban legends state that carpet reduces indoor air quality, but the facts support quite the opposite in that carpet is better for indoor air quality because it acts as a filter by trapping allergens and keeping them out of the breathing zone. In fact, there is no scientific study linking the rise of allergies and asthma to the use of carpet.

If you have carpet in your home, keeping it clean is the best way to eliminate the negative effects of allergens.

Vacuuming is the simplest and most effective way to remove dirt and allergens from carpet. In fact, 90 to 95% of all dry soil by weight can be removed from carpet by following a routine vacuuming schedule. CRI Seal of Approval tests vacuums for effective soil removal and dust containment, which means SOA-approved vacuums are among the best at raising indoor air quality.

Another imperative in improving indoor air quality is a regular deep cleaning.

A deep cleaning every 12-18 months by a Seal of Approval service provider will renew the look of carpet by removing the deepest dirt. SOA Service Providers utilize certified equipment that effectively removes soil to get carpet looking like new.

If you’re committed to improving indoor air quality in your home, choosing carpet and choosing to clean it is the best way to accomplish this.
