Your carpet can retain several indoor air pollutants including pet dander, lead, particle pollution, dirt, dust, and toxic gases. These substances can contaminate the air in your home when carpet is vacuumed or walked on, and particles are released. Regular carpet cleaning can kill the bacteria found in these substances and remove pollutants trapped deep in the carpet’s fibers.

If not dried immediately, this moisture sinks into carpet fibers causing the growth of mold. By having regular carpet cleaning, you can prevent the growth of mold and mildew. This will eliminate unnecessary allergies and sickness in your home.
