Your office carpet is dirtier than it looks. Saturated with allergens, pollutants and bacteria, dirty carpet can provoke a variety of allergic reactions in your clients and employees. Foot traffic disperses these contaminants, which affect people’s immune systems as well as the quality of indoor air. Seriously, a filthy carpet, if left unclean for a long period of time, can affect an entire office building.
According to The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), carpet affects indoor air quality 10 to 100 times more than the quality of outdoor air. It is estimated that 30 percent (about 1.4 million) non-industrial buildings in America have indoor air quality issues. One of the leading causes is dirty carpet. Professional steam cleaning is the only way to extract contaminants and improve the quality of air in your building.
Then there are mold and fungal spores, which release toxic chemicals known as mycotoxins. Asthma attacks can be triggered when these spores are inhaled through the nasal passages. Also, through the soles of shoes, salmonella can be easily tracked into office carpet. This is a dangerous pathogen that causes abdominal cramps, fever and diarrhea 12 to 72 hours after infection. Professional carpet steam cleaning can keep these toxic contaminants at bay.
Vacuuming alone cannot contain allergens and filth. Professional steam cleaning is essential in improving the air that your employees and clients breathe. This also promotes healthier immune systems, so your staff won’t get sick as often.
