Hardwood and tile floors often get touted as a simple solution for homeowners who want to keep their floors clean with less effort. But the reality is that carpets can actually be easier to maintain than other types of floors, as long as you know what you’re doing.

Plus, carpet is great for providing a soft surface for your living space. It can make your rooms feel warm, cozy, and inviting. It adds texture, and can easily be customized to suit your personal style. And no one likes walking on a cold floor first thing in the morning!

It’s no surprise that carpets are a popular choice in homes across the U.S. So why do they often get a bad rep for being tough to clean? Because if you aren’t proactive in your cleaning measures, you might wind up with discolored carpets or stains that seem impossible to treat.

Luckily, there are ways to ensure that your carpets are safe and clean — with a little help from Zero Residue® carpet cleaning.  Not only are carpets easier than you might think to clean, but they can also go a long way towards helping keep you and your family healthy and safe. Keep reading to learn how.

Could Your Carpets Help Protect Your Family’s Health?

More than 50 million Americans suffer from some form of allergies each year. In fact, allergies are so common that they are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the United States today. What irritates individuals’ allergies varies widely. Some suffer from allergies that are sparked by plants that bloom seasonally. Others react to pet dander. Many people suffer from more than one type of allergy.

The severity of allergic reactions also varies from one individual to the next. While some are life-threatening, the majority are far less severe. But rashes, itching, and other minor reactions can still disrupt your day-to-day life.

If you’re allergic to pets, you’ll likely choose not to own one, and may avoid visiting places where you may accidentally interact with one. If you’re allergic to a certain type of plant, you might learn to avoid it.

But what many people don’t know is just how many allergens may be lurking inside of your home. And allergens aren’t the only thing hiding in plain sight; toxins and chemicals could also be putting your health and the health of your family at risk.

How Carpets Trap Dust, Allergens, and Dirt

There’s no shortage of places where different allergens, toxins, and chemicals could be hiding. However, there’s one common catch-all that you might not think about; your floors. You track all kinds of allergens and germs on your shoes, bringing them into your home. Even if you remove the inside, if you’ve stepped indoors in your shoes or carry them in and toss them on the floor, those particles are still making their way onto your floors

If you have tile or hardwood floors, these germs and allergens scatter when they get inside. As you walk across your floors, you disrupt them, sending them airborne where you and your family breathe them in. This means that even when you’re in the safety of your home, your allergies may still be irritated.

But carpets can help with this problem. Carpet fibers, no matter how short or tightly woven, trap all kinds of dirt, debris, and airborne particles. Carpets act as a filter, trapping particles within their fibers, and keeping them there until you vacuum them up (or deep clean them away with Zero Residue® carpet cleaning!).

Why Your Choice of Carpet Cleaning Method Matters

Vacuuming and spot cleaning your carpets after a spill will help keep them looking great, and cut down on airborne allergens in your home. But regular professional carpet cleanings will also clear away dirt and debris in your carpets. But only if you choose the right company for the job.

Many common cleaning products, including those used by some professional carpet cleaners, contain dangerous chemicals. These aren’t fully washed away during the cleaning process. This means that your family is exposed to them each day through residue left behind by their cleaning products.

If you’ve ever had your carpets cleaned by a company that doesn’t utilize Zero Residue® carpet cleaning, the chemicals that they used could be lurking in your carpets, further irritating your family’s allergies.

How Can Zero Residue® Carpet Cleaning Help?

Zero Residue® carpet cleaning is a healthy, safe way to deep clean your carpets to get rid of common allergens, without exposing your family to unnecessary chemicals. Our innovative Zerorez® cleaning method is completely free of chemicals, soaps, and detergents. This means no residue left behind — only clean, fresh carpets.

Our patented treatment utilizes the Zr Lifter®, a counter-rotating brush, alongside a citrus-based product. The brush stirs up debris, while the oil breaks up dirt and oils trapped in your carpet. Then our Zr Water® and Zr Wand® extract the dirt and debris that has been stirred up. The all-natural  Zr Water® evaporates, leaving no residue.

Besides eliminating the use of chemicals that could put your family’s health at risk, Zero Residue® carpet cleaning also eliminates the “crunchy” feeling left behind by most professional carpet cleaning treatments. Because nothing but natural solutions, brushes, and pressure are used to treat your home’s carpets, they’ll feel just as soft as they did the day you had them installed. Plus, our treatments deep clean your carpets without going past the carpet backing, so they dry faster as well.
