Why IMP

   As you probably know, outdoor air contains pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust – and hundreds of other chemicals. When you and your family members come into your home, you carry those pollens, bacteria and chemicals in your hair and on your skin, clothing and shoes. Not surprisingly, all those chemicals, pollens and bacteria wind up – you guessed it – in your carpet.

If you have allergies, asthma, emphysema, or other breathing problems – one major source of your problem could be the pollens, fungus and chemicals in your carpet.

In addition, as you may know, tobacco smoke contains over 4000 different chemical compounds, 43 of which cause cancer. And even if you don’t smoke, those chemicals get on your shoes, you track them into your home and you leave them on your carpet. If you’re sensitive to cigarette smoke, you might find that you’ll breath easier after you hire a company to get those harmful chemicals out of your carpet.

So in addition to getting rid of dirt, another important reason to clean your carpet is to rid of pollens, fungus, bacteria, chemicals and the tars and residue from tobacco smoke.

More then 50,000 Americans suffer from allergies, most of which are caused by indoor pollution.

FARIn comparing the allergen removal efficiency of carpet and wood or tile flooring, allergen removal is much more effective with carpet than with hard surfaces. Vacuuming of hard surfaces can be initiated as an effective extraction tool, but vacuuming of hard floors is rarely performed.

Long-term studies have shown that pro per carpet selection, along with an adequate maintenance program, can reduce the amount of allergen in carpet and provide a suitable living environment. In one such study, dust mite allergen levels in carpet were significantly reduced over the course of one year. The study involved 12-year old carpet that had received neglectful maintenance. Despite heavy concentrations of mite allergen, levels were continually reduced over the course of the study. Hot water extraction alone produced a 92% reduction, while vacuuming continued to reduce allergen levels on a daily basis. No airborne dust mite allergen was detected during the two-year study. This study was performed using regular maintenance only. The use of acaricidal treatments may enhance the results of routine maintenance.

Allergens can found in any environment. The presence of allergen on any surface does not necessarily identify a source of allergens or a cause for allergic reactions. The ability to remove these allergens or a flooring surface’s ability to contain these allergens without releasing them into the breathing zone should be the primary factor in choosing floor covering material. Carpet can fulfill these requirements by providing a surface that absorbs airborne allergen without releasing them into the breathing zone and provides construction characteristics that allows for effective removal as a result of routine maintenance.
