As carpeting becomes more high tech, with the introduction of stain-resistant products, you may be wondering to yourself why your carpeting needs to be cleaned. The best reason for cleaning carpets is to ensure healthy indoor air quality. After the energy crisis in the 1970s, buildings were constructed to be more energy efficient.
Although well insulted buildings save energy, they tend to prevent healthy transfer of outside air, exposing people to higher levels of contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, pollen and dust mites, as well as household odors that adhere to carpet.
One of the advantages of carpeting is that it acts as a filter for debris in the indoor environment. As a filter, carpets, unlike hard floor surfaces, hold contaminants and prevents them from being recirculated into the atmosphere. Like all filters, carpets must be cleaned to remain effective. All fiber manufacturers and most carpet mills recommend using hot water extraction, better known as steam cleaning, as the best method to clean carpets. This recommendation is also endorsed by Dr. Michael Berry of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
