Fact 1: Regular cleaning will not only enhance the appearance of your carpets and upholstery, but will also extend their life. The longer you wait between cleaning, whether at home or in your commercial premises, the more likely the soiling and colour change will become permanent.
Fact 2: If you feel unwell and are suffering from any kind of allergy, this may be due to your carpets and soft furnishings. In the average home, there are over two million dust mites that feed on dead skin scales. They hide in your carpets, upholstery, curtains, rugs, pillows and mattresses. And its not just in your house, these dust mites feed in carpets and upholstery in your business or commercial premises too.
Surprisingly, it is actually healthier for allergy and asthma sufferers to have carpets in their homes. So long as carpets are vacuumed regularly and professionally cleaned annually, they act as a filter for dust, unlike hard floors which leave the dust permanently airborne. Incidentally, this study was carried out in Sweden, home of laminate flooring!
Fact 3: Pollutants in the air are continually settling onto and filtered through your carpets. As your carpet becomes full, your family and/or staff and customers breathe in the dust mite debris, pollens, pollutants, fungus spores and bacteria.
