Nowadays we are all concerned about better health. We take vitamins and shop for healthy foods. Visit our doctor on a regular basis, we drink filtered water… What we might not appreciate is the value of filtered air.
Carpets are Filters
How can you effectively filter the air in your home? You do it by changing the filters in your HVAC furnace system on a regular, scheduled basis. If you wait too long, you know the filter is going to be dirty. So you should change it often, and maybe you want to even put it on your smartphone or wall calendar so you don’t forget. You might even want to pick up a better quality filter.
But what about the biggest filter in your home? Are you wonder what it is? Just look down… if you have carpet, that’s the filter that often gets ignored. If you don’t have much carpet, odds are you have area rugs covering those hard floors. Those area rugs are filters, too.
Remember, allergens are very light and float in the air, and are respiratory concerns, especially for allergy and asthma sufferers. Carpet helps to keep those particulates to a minimum.
Cleaning is Important
Carpet in a home is a protection for you, because it traps all kinds of allergens that can be the bane of asthma sufferers. Carpet is a filter and, like all filters, has to be either changed or cleaned. It’s not practical to change your carpet every year or so (heck, no one could afford that!) but you can – and should – have it cleaned.
There are many documented studies about how homes and facilities, such as schools, are healthier because of carpet and regular cleaning schedules.
So enjoy your carpet and clean air in your home – have it cleaned by your favorite carpet cleaning pro!
