The Health Benefits of Carpet Cleaning

If you’re a Dublin homeowner with carpets in all or part of your home, then chances are you probably vacuum regularly. However, as routine vacuuming alone doesn’t remove all the contaminants from your carpet. To supplement your weekly routine, you should also consider professional carpet cleaning.

Various pollutants can get trapped deep down in your carpets, eventually making their way into the air and compromising your indoor air quality. Various types of dirt, dust, and dander, including pathogens like bacteria and mould spores, can cause allergic reactions. They can aggravate asthma, psoriasis, eczema common ailments. Professional carpet cleaning from Carpet Doctor can help keep your Dublin home as clean and germ free as possible, eliminating invisible threats to your family’s health.

What’s Lurking In Your Carpet? – The pollutants that get trapped in your carpet are largely microscopic, so even when they end up in the air. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they can’t affect your wellbeing! Such pollutants may be inconspicuous, but they commonly act as allergens, causing respiratory problems, eye irritation, and other health problems. They can also harbour bacteria which could potentially be harmful. In fact, some epidemiologists estimate that these household bio-pollutants may be responsible for as many as one million hospital visits per year. Professional carpet cleaning can help eliminate these threats, which could make the air quality inside your home ten times worse than the air outside. Cleaner air will help keep you and your family safer and healthier, and professional carpet cleaning from Carpet Doctor will definitely help.


Mould spores and dust mite debris are among the most common household allergens. In some cases, some types of mould can even emit toxic metabolites called “mycotoxins” that could make you very sick. Although a few spores are not always dangerous, moist areas of your home could become the site of further mould growth that exacerbates the problem by releasing more spores into the air supply.

Some household molds and mildews are fairly innocuous, but others can be very dangerous, especially for people who have asthma or have problems with their immune systems. Professional carpet cleaning services can help keep fungi out of your living space. Dust mites are another common cause of allergies and other health issues, and they’re almost certainly lurking deep down in your carpet. These tiny arthropods are arachnids, more closely related to spiders than to insects, and they feed on human skin cells. Many people have dust mite allergies, ranging from mild to severe. They’re nearly impossible to completely eliminate, but professional carpet cleaning can go a long way toward reducing a household mite problem. You’d be surprised what nasty microscopic things might be lurking in your carpet. Vacuuming isn’t always enough to really get things clean, but professional carpet cleaning can help eliminate dust, dander, mites, mold spores, bacteria, and other things that could compromise the air quality in your home and even make you sick.
