Is Carpeting Unhealthy

Wednesday, February 1, 201226 comments

Carpeting in homes can pose as a health risk, have them cleaned regularly. The statement that carpets are healthy is more or less controversial. This is a not a fact but only a notion. Many doctors say that carpet is the main polluting source that is within a home or an office. A dirty carpet may end up working as an indoor air polluter for your home. Carpets and the products used in installation, like adhesives and padding emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds). VOCs are  harmful to small children, toddlers, pregnant women, elderly, and people having weak immune system and respiratory issues.

The America Lung Association says that a new carpet can be a source of chemical emissions. There is an unhealthy emission of VOCs during and following installation of carpet, but if the installers work as per the recommendations like proper ventilation during and after installation, the carpet becomes a benign material quickly. Carpets are made of non-organic material like nylon, polyester. These do not enhance or support the microbial growth, but these are porous and fibrous in texture, which illustrates the fact that carpets absorb anything and everything that comes onto them.  If not cleaned on a daily basis, it will go on absorbing soil and dirt for a long period of time. If left unclean for more time, it will become a store house of germs.

Is Carpet Unhealthy
According to a recent study conducted by, the US Environmental ProtectionAgency (EPA), the University of North Carolina (UNC) and the Research Triangle Institute (RTI), a regular vacuuming of a carpet on a regular basis, helped in a significant improvement in the atmosphere within a room and led to a reduction in particles, VOCs, and biological pollutants.

How carpets become unhealthy
The above study has the fact that carpets are not unhealthy but if they are allowed to become contaminated for a long duration of time. Carpets are spoiled by dust brought by shoe-soles, pollen and mold spores which are allergenic in nature. The carpet can get dirty if water stays on it for a long time, as humidity leads to an unnoticed microbial growth. On the other hand it acts as a filter that absorbs are the dirt and filth so that the inhabitants may remain healthy.

To carpet or not to carpet
Carpets do provide that cushioned and cozy feeling, but carpeted floors shelter more microorganisms than any other type of flooring. It serves as a breeding ground for mold, bacteria and other allergy-causing organisms. A dirty carpet exposure would lead to health problems like burning sensation in the eyes, shortness of breath or cough, headaches, asthma, nose and throat irritation and fatigue.

A Carpet Cleaning London company can take care of your carpeting in a professional way. If you have kids or pets at your home you would need to keep a regular check on your carpet.

This was a good suggestion that you put up here. Great post.

Of course, if you vacuum frequently, it is not only great for your carpets and your health, but it protects your pets. Pets are a lot closer to carpets, physically, than humans. They shed dander, and it's unhealthy for them to breathe in this stuff that settles into a carpet. Find More information from here at Palm Beach Upholstery Cleaning

True! carpets do provide a comfortable seating and living environment with a cozy feeling. But if do not cleaned regularly, may cause unhealthy factors. Carpets must be regularly cleaned by a professional carpet cleaning company.
