Air Quality, Allergies & Malordor
Indoor Air Quality
Every time you walk into your house, you track pollutants in with you – dirt, dust, pollen, bacteria, dust mites, mold spores, fungus, mildew, and more! Children, the elderly, and those who suffer from allergies and other respiratory ailments are especially vulnerable to the affects of indoor pollution. The EPA reports that the average indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than the outdoor air.
Carpets can play a positive role in regulating indoor air quality by first acting as an environmental filter, trapping and holding impurities from the air we breathe. It is important to have carpets and upholstery cleaned at least annually to remove these trapped contaminants before they overflow back into the indoor air.
For a healthier indoor environment, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.org) recommends:
- Placing entrance mats to halt tracked-in soil and contaminants
- Vacuuming frequently using a high efficiency filtration bag
- Professionally cleaning your carpet and upholstery regularly
- Professionally cleaning your air duct system regularly
- Increasing fresh air flow from the outside
Remember: Clean not only for appearance, but for your health!
