Have you ever had your carpet professionally cleaned? Most people assume vacuuming and tending to spills is all that is needed to keep the carpet clean. However, carpets can become very dirty through a number of different sources. Not all of the different contaminants can be removed with simple vacuuming. Heart of Texas Chem-Dry will share the different causes of dirty carpets and why it is important to have your carpet professionally cleaned.
VOCs & Pollutants Trapped in Carpet
Carpets have a large pile that captures the indoor air contaminants. The carpet can capture pet dander, cockroach waste, pollen and other contaminates. The air contaminates can be trapped in the carpets pile and vacuuming can help reduce the build up. However, vacuuming won’t remove all of the contaminates in the carpet and deeper cleaning is often needed to remove all of the contaminates in the carpet.
Bugs & Pests in Carpet
Pests can invade your carpets. Carpet beetles, cockroaches, and dust mites will live in the carpets. Pests can eat away at the carpet fibers, leaving behind droppings, and shed skin flakes. Pests often invade dirty carpets which is why it is important to maintain clean carpets. Pests can leave behind wastes which causes indoor allergies and even harbor serious illnesses. To keep your home safe and healthy, deep carpet cleaning is very helpful in this cause.

Carpet Filtration Soiling
Soil filtration is one form of soil gas, but one of the worst soil gases is radon which is a natural gas that is underground. The radon isn’t the only danger. Pesticides in the ground can also rise up with the radon gas. Radon gas can up and through cracks in the foundation and become trapped in the carpets.
