Easy Ways to Maintain a Healthy Home


Research suggests that the level of many pollutants inside your home are at least twice that of the amount of pollutants outside. Considering the fact that you spend a significant portion of your time indoors, this constitutes a significant health concern as the carpets and upholstery in your home can actually trigger significant health issues.

Carpets and upholstery can store a lot of pollutants and become a breeding ground for insects and other organisims. If you have recently moved into a new home, or want to update the look of your existing Wellington home, there are many professional carpet and upholstery cleaning service providers the Wellington area. Here are some of the advantages of getting your carpets and upholstery cleaned by professionals.

1. Remove trapped pollutants: While pollutants cause significant health hazards, allergens and microorganisms are also responsible for a large number of ailments. When properly cleaned, the carpets and upholstery in your home are sanitized and trapped spores are removed, reducing complaints such as asthma and allergies.

2. Improve the quality of air: When pollutants are stored inside carpet or upholstery, respiration becomes difficult and allergens can enter your nostrils and potentially cause dangerous infections.

If you have pets you may be more susceptible to allergies from pet hair sticking to the carpets and furniture as some pet hair still lingers after vacuuming. However, people suffering from asthma or other allergies find air quality is greatly improved after the carpets in their homes have been professionally cleaned.

3. Reduce chance of infection caused by dust mites: Dust mites dwell in unclean carpets or upholstery and leave behind their body remnants and faeces which attract bacteria. When cleaned professionally and properly, carpets and upholstery won’t harbour dust mites anymore. Hire upholstery cleaning today.

4. Stop mould from growing: Mould starts growing from unclean carpets, particularly when the home is humid. Even in dry places, unclean carpets can catch moisture and develop mould spores. When carpets are professionally cleaned, these moulds are removed and any future growth is stopped.
