Dangers of Dusty Carpets, Rugs, and Upholstery
Dust can be the cause of allergies such as asthma, so regular cleaning around the home is important to help reduce dust particles in the air. If you have an air conditioning unit with a dehumidifier mode it is a good way of cleaning the air within the home.
Regular Cleaning and Vacuuming
Another good way to keep dust to a minimum is by having your carpets, rugs and upholstery cleaning done on a regular basis. A steam or dry clean will help to keep the dust from forming in areas that are not often seen by home owners.
Dust can form on the back of lounge suites or under furniture; these areas are sometimes forgotten about and often go without a vacuum for many months or years in some cases. Having a professional carpet cleaning company come in and do a steam clean or dry clean of your carpets, rugs and upholstery will eliminate the build-up of dust in these areas.
Hiring a Professional Carpet Cleaning Company
A quality carpet cleaning company will also move the furniture around as they clean, but before starting the cleaning process they would do a thorough pre vacuum of all the carpets. The vacuuming will lift the loose particulates and dust from the fibres allowing for a much better clean.
A professional cleaning company would also have hospital grade filters on their industrial vacuum cleaners; this is the most effective way to vacuum. A commercial filter will not allow any of the dust inside the machine to escape. Most household vacuum cleaners are not serviced enough, so the filter clogs up very quickly. When a filter on a vacuum cleaning machine has blocked up, it will not work as well resulting in poor vacuuming.
Dust can also collect under beds, and this can be the cause of an irritating cough. So when having your carpets cleaned, its worth hiring a professional company that pays particular attention to these areas. This is very important so you can enjoy a good night’s sleep. Cheap carpet cleaners miss these areas, so it pays to pay a little more and have the job done right the first time.
After a good carpet clean, it’s a good idea to have a carpet protection applied. This will help make the job of vacuuming easier. This will release the dust and dirt from within the carpet fibres much more effectively when vacuuming.
