Usage of hazardous chemicals and cleaning agents
The customer must ensure that the carpet cleaning company uses the right products and equipments for the cleaning process. There are carpet cleaning companies who make use of toxic chemicals that not only spoil the carpet but pollute the air inside the house. Carpet cleaners are expected to use organic cleaning solutions with a Green seal. However, many of the companies make use of highly toxic cleaning agents without revealing the actual ingredients on the labels. For the purpose of stain removing, spot removing etc., such companies make use of the harmful chemicals that are used for dry cleaning. Fuming chemicals, chemicals that produce an artificial fragrance and chemicals that produce bad odours when they are mixed with dirt are widely used by many carpet cleaners. When the carpet gets dry after the cleaning process these harmful chemicals evaporate and as a result the indoor air gets contaminated with the vapors thereby leading to a serious air pollution. This kind of pollution inside the house can cause various health problems like headache, asthma, irritation of the eyes and nose, sneezing, cough and cold, nausea and other ailments. Repeated usage of such hazardous chemicals for carpet cleaning can lead to fatal diseases like cardiac ailments and cancer.
Risk of mould growth
As a result of the cleaning of the carpets using either improper methods or wrong procedures the carpet gets affected by mould growth. The carpets that are cleaned by the method of steam cleaning are bound to attract mould growth. No process of removal can get rid of the mould completely once they are grown on thecarpet. The tiny particles of the mould also can cause various ailments like allergy symptoms, fatigue, asthma and breathing troubles.
Cheap rates, poor quality
The customers are cautioned against hiring a carpet cleaning company exclusively based on their charges. The quality of the cleaning service varies widely between reliable and professional companies and companies that are not reliable and not professional. Such companies make use of toxic chemicals,cheap equipments etc. and follow wrong methods for cleaning the carpets. As a result, after the washing the carpet may not get completely dry. Presence of moisture can damage the carpet and make the indoors stingy.
Durability of the carpet and healthy environment inside the home are the priorities at the time of carpet cleaning. The carpet cleaning company must ensure a 100% Green process to clean the carpet so that the life of the carpet and health of the inmates in the house is protected.
