Better health is everyone's concern. We shop for healthy foods. We take our vitamins. We visit our doctor on a regular basis. We drink filtered water. What we might not appreciate is the value of filtered air for better health.
How do you effectively filter the air in your home? You can change the filters in your furnace system on a regular, scheduled basis. If you wait too long, you know it, because the filter will be extremely dirty and will make a mess when you change it. So you can vow to do it more often, and maybe you even put it on your wall calendar so you won’t forget. You might even pick up a better quality filter, such as one that uses HEPA standards.
But if changing filters can promote a better environment for your home, what about the biggest filter in your home? 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.
Carpet and rugs in a home provide protection for you. They trap all kinds of allergens that can be the bane of asthma sufferers. Carpet and rugs are filters and like all filters, they have to be either changed or cleaned when they are dirty. It’s not practical to change your carpet or rugs on a regular basis but you can — and should — have them cleaned if you are looking for better health for your home environment.
Allergens are very light and float in the air, and are respiratory concerns, especially for allergy and asthma sufferers. Carpet and rugs help to keep those particulates to a minimum. It is important, however, to not let the carpet or rugs get saturated with dirt and bacteria. Once that happens and they can no longer hold onto the dirt and bacteria, those allergens will be dispersed into the air.
Regular vacuuming and regularly scheduled professional cleanings are essential to keeping your air cleaner. There are many documented studies about how homes and facilities, such as schools, are healthier because of regular vacuuming and carpet cleaning schedules.
So enjoy your carpet and rugs. Vacuum regularly and have them cleaned by a professional carpet cleaning company and you can be assured you are providing a better environment for your home and family.
