People do many things to help themselves lead a healthier lifestyle. Some people set up exercise regimens where they do stretching exercises and lift light weights. Some people add fruits and vegetables to their diet to help their heart stay healthy. Some people quit smoking or limit their alcoholic beverage intake.
But whatever one or more of these things you do to stay healthy there is one more important thing you should do for good health, Clean Your Carpets! Yes, there is a definite health risk with dirty carpets. Your carpets act like filters for your home. They trap dirt and dust. They hold the pollen that floats into your house on a summer’s day. Air pollution and dead skin that drops from the homes inhabitants is collected by your carpets, not to mention the colony of dust mites living in your carpets.
The normal vacuuming you do helps to remove dust and dirt in your carpets, but only scratches the surface and doesn’t remove the mold and mildew that may be growing in your carpets. Your children are at the greatest risks because they play at ground level and they disturb all the mold, mildew, spores and dust mite feces that your carpets are full of. After they disturb all this unhealthy debris they inhale it and may suffer allergic reactions.
You really should have professionals clean your carpets about twice a year. They have safe effective solutions to do a thorough cleaning. Their equipment will dry your carpets completely, killing mold and mildew and preventing their return. If you really want to have a healthy happy family then having your carpets professionally cleaned is one item that should be on your “to do” list.
