Can Carpeting Impact Your Health?

According to the American Lung Association, if it’s not properly cared for – yes.

Over the last few years, we’ve shared a number of tips on Facebook, Twitter, and G+ to help you properly care for your carpet.  One such tip was this: “Did you know that carpet acts as a trap for allergens? Regular vacuuming, using a high-efficiency filter and regular cleanings, removes most of the allergens.”  Most but not all.

Carpet traps stuff like dust mites, pet dander, allergens, pollution, mold spores, dirt, and dust.  Simple things like walking across the carpet or your children playing on the carpeted floor can disturb that stuff and cause it to become airborne.  According to everydayhealth.com, “If dust and allergens are deeply embedded in your carpets — or circulating in the air throughout your home — allergy symptoms can become worse. Sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, and itchy eyes may occur, depending on the specific pollutants.”  They went on to list other health problems like irritated skin, frequent headaches, difficulty breathing.

We’re not anti-carpet.  There are lots of benefits to having carpeting in your home – reduces noise, lowers the chance of slips and falls, adds beauty to your home.  If you do have carpeting, The Carpet and Rug Institute recommends the following:
  1. Vacuum high traffic areas daily, and elsewhere on a set schedule, using an SOA/Green Label-approved vacuum.
  2. Clean spots and spills quickly with products that do not damage the carpet or cause it to re-soil.
  3. Professionally deep clean carpets every 12 to 18 months.
  4. Stop dirt at the door by using mats outside and in, taking shoes off when entering the house, and changing air filters regularly.
We’d also like to give you another option to consider, especially if you are in the market for new flooring.  The American Lung Association suggests that instead of carpeting, choose hard-surfaced flooring and rugs that can be removed and cleaned outside the home.  If you are considering rugs for your home and have questions, please feel free to contact Greg Henderson at 336-804-0045.  He’ll be glad to talk with you.  If you already have rugs in your home that need cleaning, simply call Greg, send him an e-mail at acwcarpet@earthlink.net, or schedule an appointment through our website.
