Rid Your Carpet Of Potential Health Risks This Spring

Chem-Dry Provides Tips on Dirt-Proofing your home

May 16, 2022 // Franchising.com // NASHVILLE, TENN. - Experts with Chem-Dry, a carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise, are warning homeowners about what’s lurking beneath the surface of a carpet. According to our professionals, one pound of dirt can easily hide in a square foot of carpeting. If ignored during spring cleaning, carpets can change color and fibers can be ruined, costing hundreds of dollars in repairs.

More long-term effects:

  • Dirt will wear down carpet fibers causing tears and holes.
  • Track marks can become permanent
  • Portions or the entire carpet might need to be replaced
  • Pet hair can weigh down carpet, and cause an unpleasant odor
  • Carpets can hold 4 times their weight in dirt

Chem-Dry experts want homeowners to avoid potential health issues from dirty floors. They compare carpet to air filters because it collects dirt, dust, and grime in its fibers. At a certain point, the fibers can’t hold onto to it anymore and will release harmful particles in the air. This can cause health issues like difficulty breathing, rashes, nose and eye irritations, and more.

To avoid this, Chem-Dry professionals suggest:

  • Vacuuming once or twice a week. This can eliminate 85% of dirt
  • Have a “no shoes in the house” policy to reduce dirt
  • Wipe your pet’s muddy paws before entering the home
  • Professional deep cleaning every 6 months to a year.

While implementing these healthy habits can help, it is important to hire professionals like Chem-Dry to deep clean your carpet every six months to a year. The company’s cleaners have mastered what is referred to as the “the uncleanable carpet.”

The Chem-Dry process is eco-friendly, fast, efficient, and affordable, and because it’s the world’s largest carpet cleaning franchise, it has the strong brand awareness to connect with homeowners who are trying to find a fast solution for their rising home cleanliness standards.
