Carpets Are Healthy!

Posted on December 21, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Because of the assumption that carpet was the cause of the high rate of asthma and other respiratory problems, the government of Sweden actively promoted the removal of carpeting in people’s homes. However, after a 15 year study, the surprising conclusion was that asthmatic problems actually increased in the general population after the use of carpeting had been decreased by 70%. This convinced them to reverse their campaign and promote the use of carpeting! Also the EPA has done studies that indicate the effectiveness of carpet in reducing airborne particles. Carpeting in the home actually acts as a filter for the indoor air, trapping allergens away from the breathable zone so that they can be removed through proper vacuuming and deep cleaning extraction. So the benefits of clean carpet not only include better looking carpet but also a healthier, cleaner indoor environment!

Remember – our carpet division, Sparkle Carpet offers a 20% discount to our customers for carpet, upholstery and oriental rug cleaning.
