Are your carpets ready for winter?

As we baton down the hatches for winter, we often forget that we are settling into a confined space with our own dirt. A well maintained carpet (read also, sofa or favourite chair) can harbour unwanted guests including organisms that really need to be cleared out on a regular basis. Do you know that even a small flood or leak can be just as dangerous?

Dust mites

Dust mites are common in carpets, furniture and mattresses. They live on our dead skin cells. In many ways, they are the end of the food chain and clean up our waste products but when we neglect the cleaning of our carpet and upholstery the population increases to beyond healthy levels. It is not actually the dust mite that causes our problems, it is their faeces. Known as Der P1. It’s this stuff that really affects asthmatics and other chronic respiratory sufferers.

Bacteria and viruses

Harmful bacteria and viruses can live inside carpet fibres.  During the cold season it is important to ensure that the home is safe for occupants.  The best way to remove harmful bacteria and viruses is to steam clean the carpet in autumn.  Keeping the carpets cleaned can significantly reduce flu and cold incidents in winter.

Internal air quality

Did you know that well maintained carpet actually creates a healthier Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) than hard floors? The reason being, loose dust particles and allergens are easily stirred up from a hard surface and come up into our breathing space. Carpet, if cared for regularly, is by contrast a great filter and holds these allergens at bay ready for vacuuming up.

Ensure your carpets and rugs are vacuumed with a suitable HVAC vacuum cleaner once a week.  High foot traffic areas like hallways, staircases and family living areas should be vacuumed two or three times a week. All the carpets and rugs in your home should be professionally steam cleaned with Hot Water extraction to kill harmful bacteria and allergens that can make your family sick in winter.

Of course, you also need to maintain a clean dry and warm atmosphere in our homes. That may entail ventilation, insulation and/or dehumidification depending on your home’s needs. Clean flooring and furnishings are a big part of this.

Why you need to professionally clean your carpets before winter
