Prepare Your Home For Winter
Winter weather is here, and with it comes drier air that can cause indoor air quality problems for your family. While there are many measures you can take to improve your home’s indoor air quality, keeping your rugs and carpets clean is an important step. Here is a closer look at some of the ways you can improve your home’s indoor air quality, with professional carpet cleaning being part of it.
Health Risks at Home in the Winter
When winter weather hits, the air becomes drier. This causes the rubber seals around your doors and windows to get brittle, which can let outside air in. Not only does this hurt the efficiency of your HVAC systems, but it also allows pollen and other contaminants into your home. These settle on your carpet, where they mix with the pet dander, dust mites, and other problems you have in your home to create indoor air quality problems.
Carpets Hide Serious Issues
Today’s carpets are designed to avoid stains and hide soil. This means they can look great even when they are quite dirty. Oil from your skin, soil from your shoes, allergens, pollutants, and pet messes not only fall on your carpet, but they actually get trapped by it. During the summer and fall when your family spent many hours outdoors, they tracked in mold spores, pollen, and other pollutants, which are now trapped in the fibers of your carpet. Your carpet and rugs may look great, but they are quite dirty and hurt your indoor air quality significantly.
Schedule Winter Carpet & Rug Cleaning to Prepare Your Home for the Season
When you start to think about all of the grit and grime that has settled on your carpets, it’s clear why carpet cleaning and rug cleaning are so important. The EPA recommends twice-a-year carpet cleaning for most homes. Winter is a great time to tackle this task so your home is ready for holiday entertaining. By taking care of your carpets, you also eliminate one of the major indoor air quality problems in your home this winter.
Not only does carpet cleaning make your home feel clean and inviting for holiday guests, but it also prepares you for the season when you’ll be spending quite a bit of time indoors. In the winter, you will spend many more hours indoors, and you want to know that your home will look nice and be healthier for your family.
