Why we clean
Your carpeting is the biggest air filter in your home. When airborne particles settle on hard or smooth floors, they are more easily disturbed, and allergens can be redistributed throughout the air over and over. Carpets, however, act as dirt-traps rendering the air above carpet with fewer allergens and dust mites. Therefore, carpeting can actually be an asset rather than a detriment to air quality because it hold allergens out of the air. [Source]
But here’s the catch: carpets must be regularly cleaned in order to maintain high air quality.
What we use
Safety is number one and that includes avoiding allergens and irritants. That’s why we’ve chosen our primary cleaning solution to be completely plant-based, hypoallergenic, soap free, odor free and environmentally friendly. It’s even safe to drink!
The only time we’ll use anything stronger is if there’s a tough spot that requires it – and even then, we can assure you that it will rinse out like the rest leaving only fresh water in your carpets.
