Looks aren’t everything-
Clean first for health, then for appearance.
Is the air starting to smell stale? Great News! Pollutants in the air are filtered through your carpet. The carpet traps them so you don’t breathe them over and over. What happens when the trap gets full? Your family starts breathing dust mite debris, cat dander, pollens, fungus, spores, bacteria, chemicals, scores of known carcinogens, and a long list of really gross stuff.
Tearing out the carpet is not the answer!
The Environmental Protection Agency found that homes with carpet are healthier as long as they are cleaned frequently. This is because of your carpet’s natural filtering ability which traps all that junk, so your family doesn’t breath it over and over. Once your carpet’s natural filtering ability is full...it’s time to thoroughly clean it, for your health’s sake.
