Indoor Air Quality And Carpet

According to the American Lung Association, carpet can act as a “sink” for chemical and biological pollutants including pesticides, dust mites, and fungi. This means that whenever you interact with you carpet by walking or otherwise having contact with it, you can disturb these contaminants and cause them to re-enter the air where they can be inhaled.

The best solution for this problem is regularly scheduled cleaning with an environmentally-safe tool that removes the contaminants from your carpet without aerating them. A water-filtering vacuum is a perfect way to accomplish this.
