In the early evening, your eye will often catch the dust particles floating through the room, made visible by the setting sun. Have you ever wondered where those particles land? The carpets, rugs, and upholstery in your home act as filters for these dust particles. With the extreme heat and drought that we have had this summer, these in-home ‘filters’ have been busier than usual. They can be full of dust, dirt, bacteria and allergens without professional cleanings.
The answer is not to replace your carpeting with a hard surface (such as wood floors). Hard surfaces will allow these dust particles to “bounce” rather than “grab”, and the dust will re-circulate in the air. Carpet is considered to be a healthier flooring choice because it also serves as a filter, trapping these dirt and allergens.. Regular cleanings of your carpets, rugs and upholstery are what will help remove all of that collected dust, dirt and allergens – and this will enable them to continue to serve as healthy filters for your home.
