Why Call a Vancouver Carpet Cleaner? The Hidden Health Risk Lurking In Your Home

Sep 11th, 2017 | by Angelo |    0   

Mould. Any house can get it, and it can lurk in unlikely places—under sinks, behind fridges and dishwashers, around windows, under roofs, even in your carpets! All it needs to thrive is a source of high humidity and neglect. Mould fungi spreads through releasing spores into the air which are invisible to the naked eye. Hundreds of them can be found in a single cubic foot of air, and they can survive under harsh conditions, waiting for the right environmental circumstances to spring back to life and spread.

There are a number of different types of mould, categorized by their effects on people. These include allergenic moulds (causing allergies in some people), pathogenic moulds (which can cause infection, and are especially problematic to those with immune system issues), and toxigenic moulds (which have seriously toxic health effects on just about anyone).

The bottom line is, you don’t want mould in your home, and the way to keep it out is to keep your house clean. But how you keep it clean is just as important a consideration. A cheap budget cleaner might get all the dirt out of your rug or carpet, yet leave it so wet that it takes several days to dry—and that’s exactly the kind of conditions mould are looking for.
