New environmental health research from the University of Salford is showing that the best time for that thorough yearly carpet clean is not when temperatures start to rise, but when they fall.
Autumn is the time of the year when dust mites and bacteria withdraw to the sanctury of your carpets for warmth as it starts to get colder on a night. As you start closing your windows and turning the central heating up, the reduced airflow and increased moisture enriches the breeding environment for all manner of unwanted visitors. This can cause both damage and health risks if left unchecked.
In addition, the combination of dust, crumbs and pet hair can become embedded within the fibres of your carpet, making it look old and worn. This build-up of dust not only creates an unpleasant smell, but in more extreme circumstances it can also cause respiratory harm if breathed in regularly.
Domestic vacuuming methods are not enough. The only way to eradicate the debauchery being carried out beneath the surface of your carpets is deep professional carpet cleaning. If done yearly in the autumn, this could make a big difference to you and your family’s health and the appearance and longevity of your carpets and upholstery.
