Carpets are usually the largest furnishings in a home, and are often neglected when it comes to a professional clean. Unkept carpets harbor dirt, debris, allergens, and mold.
Mold can exist in your carpet long before its noticeable. And when it is noticeable it has become a sever contaminant. Mold can cause a variety of health issues and is especially dangerous people with respitaory issues and children due to the increase of time spent on the floor.
Common symptoms of mold exposure include:
- Runny nose
- Red eyes
- Exasperated asthma symptoms
Water can be detrimental to carpeting. Should a leak, flood, or large spill take place, your carpeting should be quickly cleaned and fully dried.
Keeping your carpets clean by regularly vacuuming can help to reduce mold contaminants, but we recommend an annual professional carpet clean to ensure a deep clean of your carpets and assist in sustaining your carpets.
