Steam Great for Allergies

As middle Tennesseans, many of us experience the year-long allergen season, but replacing those carpets with wood or tile may not be the best answer. Steam carpet cleaning not only improves your carpet’s longevity, but also increases Indoor Air Quality within your home or office.

Similar to an air filter, carpet is a catch-all for dust, pollen and other allergens. A 2002 study by Triangle Research Institute (RTI) and University of North Carolina found that hard surface floors exposed students to higher levels of indoor allergens as compared to carpeted surfaces. Shaw Industries, the largest North American carpet manufacturer, recommends removing soils and allergens through steam carpet cleaning (hot water extraction) every 12 to 18 months. Similar to changing your indoor air filter, steam cleaning removes the soils and allergens that have built up over time. Having your carpets steam cleaned significantly improves your Indoor Air Quality as well as the longevity of your carpet.
