Carpeted floors in a business enhances the visual appeal to customers and employees. Having carpets promotes a sense of quality and professionalism in your business and it also makes your facility welcoming to visitors. Even though carpets can uplift the image of your brand, it can also have an adverse effect if they are not properly maintained. Carpets are considered a porous surface – which means that dirt and debris can easily be trapped within its fibers and not be visible. If these trapped substances are removed completely, they can become a risk to the health of your building patron.
How Often Should You Clean Your Carpets?
Considering the fact that carpets increase exposure to air pollutants by acting as a reservoir for allergens, having a carpet deep cleaning service 2 to 4 times per year would be the recommended frequency. Simply walking on carpets or the standard vacuuming the carpets can suspend allergens into the air and then they get inhaled – causing a reaction to people who are sensitive to them. Allergens that remain on the carpets are often pushed to the bottom of the carpet pores by foot traffic and then they stick to the fibers and are difficult to remove. While vacuuming is one of the best ways to care for your carpet, you will need a carpet extractor to remove the hard-to-reach allergens from the fibers.
What Is an Allergen?
Allergens are usually harmless particles that have the capability of triggering an immune system response in sensitive individuals. For example, if you have an allergy to pollen, your immune system will identify the pollen particle as an invader and respond by releasing chemicals that can cause a running nose, sore throat, tearful eyes, swollen ears, and/or itchy skin. Allergic reactions symptoms can range from sneezing, watery eyes, and itchy skin to more severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing and swelling in the throat that can occur in the life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis.
