Carpet makes a statement in any room it is in.  Investing in carpet can be costly.  Which is why it is important to maintain carpet quality and extend its life.  Here are some tips on how to do that.

  1. Remove pollutants

Indoor pollutants such as allergens, insects, and dirt can easily find their way inside a home.  If undisturbed some pollutants can even become toxic.  Help eliminate these pollutants by performing regular carpet cleaning.

  1. Prevent mold

Carpet gets wet.  Whether the reason is a rainy coat or a broken pipe your carpet will get wet.  Mold grows in dark, warm, and damp areas.  Carpet that is contaminated with particulates provides a food source for mold to develop. In addition to the potential health effects it presents, it can also significantly impact the life of your carpet.  This means that the overall quality goes down.  Try to keep your carpet dry.  However, if you do find mold, the professional services SERVPRO offers in addition to carpet cleaning performed by SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove/Lake Zurich can make a big difference to the indoor air quality of your home.
