Clean Carpets, Healthy Home

Carpets are a wonderful floor covering to incorporate into your home, especially in environments where the weather is colder and your home needs that extra warmth.

Keeping your carpets clean can become labor intensive and really time consuming and it is often so much more convenient to hire a professional Adelaide carpet cleaning.

Carpets can become a health hazard to your family if they are not maintained and cleaned regularly and there are potential hazards which you may not have even spared a thought on.


A dirty carpet can trap within the fibers various indoor air pollutants. Pet messes, cockroach allergens, particle pollution and everyday dust and dirt all collect in your carpets. To top it all off, toxic airborne pollutants can also collect in your carpets. Everyday activities performed on the carpets can release these gases into the air, contaminating it. Bacteria and allergens can cause illness or worsen already existing conditions, especially those of the respiratory tract.

A professional carpet cleaner is able to rid your carpets of these bacteria and allergens through the use of their deep penetrating vacuum cleaning machines and their strong shampoo formulations.

Microscopic dust mites can infest your carpets leaving behind them their feces and dead carcasses which are in fact allergens. The particles are microscopic and easily inhaled causing worsening of existing allergies. Steam cleaning by a professional carpet cleaner uses high temperature conditions to kill off the dust mites.

It is not a good idea to have carpet floor coverings in areas of high humidity. Moisture can cause mold growth in dirty carpets. In weather where it is raining, water is tracked onto the carpets and if not immediately dried, the moisture can soak into the carpets breeding mold. A professional carpet cleaner used high powered drying equipment to remove any moisture from the carpets and preventing the situation which is conducive to the growth of mildew and mold. Mold has the potential to become an extreme health hazard if not controlled and eliminated.

Carpets can be such lovely floor coverings if they are maintained and cleaned. They are fairly high maintenance and need to be cleaned regularly to ensure that they are sanitary, odorless, clean and to prolong their life. Clean carpets are aesthetically pleasing and will welcome guests into your home. Carpets that are clean and maintained can give a home a feeling of grandeur and warmth. If you are looking for a low maintenance floor covering, this is definitely not the choice for you.
