CARPET:  IT’S JUST GOOD FOR YOU

Everyone is concerned about better health.  We shop for healthy foods.  We take our vitamins.  We visit our doctor on a regular basis.  We drink filtered water.  What we might not appreciate is the value of filtered air. How do you effectively filter the air in your home?  You are right… changing the filters in your furnace system on a regular , scheduled basis.  If you wait to long, you know it because the filter is just so darned dirty.  It makes a mess when you change it.  So you vow to do it more often. and maybe you even put it on your wall calenderso you don’t forget.  You might even pick up a better quality filter, such as tthe one that uses HEPA standards. But what about the biggest filter in your home?  Wonder what it is?  Just look down… if you have carpet, that’s the filter that often gets ignored.  If you don;t have much carpet,  odds are you have area rugs covering those hard floors.  Those area rugs are filters , too Carpet in a home is protection for you, because it traps all kinds of allergens that can bt the bane of allergy sufferers.  Carpet is a filter and ,  like all filters.  has to be either  cleaned or changed .  It’s not practical to change your carpet every year or so  ( heck no one can afford that )  but you can– and should have it cleaned.

So  enjoy you carpet… and have it cleaned by your favorite cleaning pro!  ...
