The health benefits of having your carpets professionally cleaned


Your carpet/your health.  Who would ever dream that these two could be connected? They are, and in more ways than you can imagine.

Orion Cleaning uses the most thorough carpet cleaning process available today.  We clean your carpets with a process called truck mounted hot water extraction. This process uses pressurized hot water to get the soil out of your carpets and into the waste tank in our truck. The hot water extraction method of cleaning is 100% safe for people and pets.

The American Lung Associationhas issued a warning that for families who have a member suffering from breathing conditions such as snoring or asthma, it is imperative that their home’s carpets are vacuumed a minimum of three times a week. Regular carpet and upholstery cleaning by Orion should also be a part of this regime.

This is what is going on in your carpeting, even after regular vacuuming:

  1. you could have an infestation of microscopic dust mites (unable to be seen by the human eye). The dust mites themselves won’t cause any irritation to humans, but, the body fragments and feces which they leave behind are the allergy-causing culprits. They can very easily be inhaled each and every time the carpet is disturbed by foot traffic or by vacuuming.

Fortunately, dust mites can’t survive the high temperature of Orion Cleaning’s hot water extraction cleaning method.

  1. In this part of the country, where we deal with a lot of snow, family members are constantly tracking moisture into their homes. This tracked-in moisture settles into the fibers of your carpeting, which causes mold to develop. When Orion cleans your carpets, we use a high-powered drying tool that eliminates moisture and prevents mold growth.
  2. Harmful pollutants are residing in your carpets. These include airborne pollutants, chemicals, dirt and dust. It is these pollutants which can also be the cause of many respiratory and allergy symptoms.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, “a dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, fungus and molds. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped within the carpet.”

The trapped gasses get released and contaminate your home when the carpets are walked upon and vacuumed. But, Orion Cleaning guarantees that with our pressurized hot water cleaning system we can kill bacteria and remove the pollutants that have taken up residence in your carpeting.
