Are your carpets making you sick? | Carpet and Area Rug Cleaning, Bloomfield Hills, MI



A cleaner carpet in your Bloomfield Hills, Michigan home means a healthier environment for you and your family.  Learn how a carpet that looks clean can actually be quite dirty and how clean carpet functions to improve indoor air quality.


Carpet offers many benefits to your indoor living environment.  It acts as an insulator and provides additional warmth, reduces noise levels, and can improve the aesthetics of the rooms in your Bloomfield Hills, MI home.  One little known feature of about carpet is that it acts as a really big filter that traps and holds dirt and indoor air pollutants.  Carpet, just like any other filter, needs to be changed or cleaned.  Unless your carpet is really old and must be replaced, diligent vacuuming and annual deep steam cleanings are a must to keep your carpet looking beautiful and staying healthy.

Even if your carpet “looks” clean, don’t be fooled.  One square foot of carpet can hold up to one pound of dirt before it starts to LOOK dirty.  In fact, the major carpet manufacturers recommend a deep hot water extraction carpet cleaning once every 12-18 months.  This is especially important if you have newer carpet that is still under warranty.  A homeowner should consider hiring a professional carpet cleaner to come in every 6 months if there are many people and pets in the home (and high traffic activity as a result).

If regular maintenance is not performed, the things that will accumulate in your carpet go far beyond everyday dirt and dust.  Your carpet will also trap and hold pollen, dead skin, cooking residue, cigarette smoke, car exhaust, pet dander, asphalt, chemicals, bacteria, road salt, dust mites and their feces.  Hard particles will also act like razors and grind against your carpet fibers and damage them beyond repair over time.  This is why it’s a great idea to put mats on the inside and outside of each entry point and/or purchase long runners or sizeable rugs for high traffic areas such as hallways, foyers, or other well-used entryways or pathways within your Bloomfield Hills, MI home.
