How can carpets CONTRIBUTE to indoor air quality?

Clean Rugs - Clean Air

Today’s modern homes and workplaces are built to be airtight. New windows, insulations, materials keep the ventilation inside and the elements out. This has led to an increase in allergens and pollutant indoors. Carpet can contribute to better indoor air quality – if you keep them clean and dry.

Carpet is NOT linked to high levels of VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions and is not a place where mold can grow. Mold needs moisture to grow. Dry carpets do not foster this environment. The harmless emissions associated with the smell of new carpet is quickly gone.

It is a myth that people with asthma and allergies should avoid carpeting. If anything, carpet traps household particles like dust and dander from pets and insects – it keeps them out of the air you breathe. Keeping your carpet and flooring clean is just part of the responsible maintenance of a healthy home. A regular good vacuuming and mopping by you is just part of it.
