Carpet Keeps Allergens Out of the Air

There is a misconception that asthma and allergy sufferers should avoid carpet. In fact, the opposite is true. Studies have shown that carpet actually improves indoor air quality. It acts like a trap, keeping dust and allergens out of the air we breathe. Simply put, what falls to the carpet (dust, pet dander and many other particles) tends to stay trapped until it is removed through vacuuming or extraction cleaning. Smooth floor surfaces allow dust and other allergens to re-circulate into the breathing zone. Additional research

The Lowest Emitter of VOCs

Carpet has the lowest volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions of common flooring choices. In fact, it’s one of the lowest emitting products used in new construction and renovation. What VOCs new carpet emits are short-lived and largely dissipate within 24 to 48 hours – even faster with fresh air ventilation.

CRI’s Green Label Plus standards, which have been adopted across the industry, serve as the benchmark for low VOC emissions. The Green Label Plus symbol indicates:

• The manufacturer voluntarily participates in the program.

• The manufacturer is committed to developing ways to minimize any adverse effects on indoor air quality.

• A representative sample of the product type is tested by an independent laboratory and meets the established emissions requirements.

Carpet Puts You On Safer Ground.

Carpets and rugs provide better traction than other flooring options, preventing falls. This is true everywhere, but even more important in areas where there is a lot of rain and snow. And when falls do happen, the softer surface reduces their impact. Whether you are in a business, school or hospital, fewer falls and less severe injuries are one more reason carpet is a choice you can feel good about.

Less Noise, More Productivity

Carpet is significantly more efficient at reducing noise, compared with other flooring. So everyone from employees to students gets a quieter, less distracting environment where they hear more, concentrate better and perform their best.

We have a multi step cleaning process when we clean Oriental & Area Rugs in our facility. The most important step is getting rid of the dry soil that is hiding in the foundation of your area rug. We recently removed a shocking amount of dry soil from a 8 x 10 Oriental rug. (see pic). Removing this dry soil prevents possible permanent damage to the face fibers and the foundation of the rug.

Dry soil acts like sand paper causing loss of face fibers and an ugly appearance.

Woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. A few years ago, the Eureka company did a study and found that a 9 x 12 could hide 5 pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a variety of techniques to "dust" the rugs from the front and back. A machine called the Rug Badger™ and many other methods are implemented. This is the most important step in cleaning any textile. Refer to our Oriental Rug Cleaning page for more information.

You can drop off your area rugs Monday - Friday 9 -5 or we do offer pick-up and delivery.
