Health Benefits

Carpets are known to accumulate dust and allergens.  These allergens can be especially harmful and in some cases even fatal for asthma sufferers.

Asthma is a common disease that affects approximately 1 in 15 Americans and over 50% of these cases are considered “allergic asthma”.  Allergic asthma means that the primary triggers, or causes, of the asthma attacks are caused by allergens.

In terms of typical household allergens, dust mites are known to be major allergens for many asthma sufferers.  In fact it is not the dust mites, but their excretions, which are known to cause the allergies.

Another common allergen found in carpets is household mold or mildew.   Mold can accumulate especially in damp conditions.  Molds release spores into the air which can precipitate allergic reactions and conditions such as asthma and hay fever.

Maintain Your Carpet’s Warranty

Most carpet manufacturer’s offer extended warranties on their carpets.  The warranties are often varied and each specific manufacturer has their own clauses. Almost without exception, most companies require that carpets be professionally cleaned by using the truck-mounted hot water steam extraction method of carpet cleaning at regular intervals in order to maintain the warranty.

For example, Stain Master offers various warranties including a lifetime (20 year) stain resistance warranty.  According to their brochure, in order to maintain their warranties, they require “professional cleaning every 24 months since the date of purchase” of the carpet.

When you purchase or install your carpets make sure that you read the fine print on your warranty.  You will most likely find that you will need to have your carpets professionally cleaned in order to keep the warranty valid.

Maintain Your Carpet’s Appearance

Regular professional carpet steam cleaning is essential in order to maintain your carpet’s appearance.  If carpets are not regularly cleaned, they tend to accumulate dirt and eventually become harder to clean.
