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.
With that said, The U.S. EPA reports that Americans spend nearly 90% of their time indoors which means that indoor air quality is of the utmost importance in general. If you have carpet in your home, using a professional carpet cleaner 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. Another imperative in improving indoor air quality is a regular deep cleaning.
A deep cleaning every 12-18 months by Ayoub Carpet Service will renew the look of carpet by removing the deepest dirt. ACS is a certified provider 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.
