Aside from looking good, carpets have many, many beneficial qualities that are often overlooked. They provide warmth and lessen the impact of a fall, but most of all, they serve as a filter for your home. Believe it or not, but when you choose to purchase a carpet, you are choosing to purchase a system that will efficiently filter the air in your home, making the air you breathe much healthier.
Thanks to the natural design of carpets, they have the ability to “catch” almost any impurity in your home. From red wine, to dirt mucked in on the bottom of a shoe, to deadly microbes that circle the air, carpets can snatch up all of them. They are excellent at capturing dust, pollen, bacteria, and other impurities that often circulate around in the air. In fact, several studies have shown that people who suffer from asthma or allergies saw a significant improvement of symptoms after a carpet was installed.
However, like most filters, there is a cap on how much a carpet can soak up before becoming ineffective. Once that limit is reached, particles will circulate around freely, leaving you and your family at risk. Just like a filter, it needs to be refreshed. With common filters, you just swap out one for another, but for carpet, you often call in a professional to have them properly cleaned.
