The terms dust and dirt should come to mind when you think about what makes a carpet dirty. But what exactly is this dust composed of? In an uncleaned carpet there exists an entire disgusting ecosystem of dead skin cells, living dust mites (they look like ticks, but are very small), fleas and their eggs, and the feces from all of these parasites. And don't forget to add anything you tracked in on your shoes including viruses, animal dander, pollen, spores, and mold to the mix. With every passing day, all these pathogens are living in your carpet and getting stirred up into the air you breathe.
The good news is that a professional cleaning removes the plethora of these cringe worthy components of dust before and even after they accumulate to levels that decrease the air quality inside your home. Carpets should be professionally cleaned at least twice a year for the sake of both appearance and air quality. Some people worry that vacuuming and cleaning your carpet too much will wear it down, however the opposite is true though. The dirt and oils in your carpet stick to the fibers and make them either stick together and fall down or act like sandpaper and wear them down as they are stepped on. Removing all bacteria contaminants will improve the appearance of the carpet, and subsequently the air quality of the room.
Carpet Cleaning Agoura Hills utilizes the time tested steam cleaning method for our carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning. It has been proven as the most effective method of bacterial removal because the system loosens and then captures carpet pathogens, rather than just sucking up top level dirt, like vacuums do.
