The Skin of Your Home

Categories: Carpet Cleaning Tips

Did you know that the skin is your largest organ? That’s right, skin is an organ, something we don’t generally remember. The heart, stomach, and liver – that’s what we think of when it comes to organs, and the skin, well, that’s just . . . skin.  Nonetheless, this amazing organ helps us regulate our temperature, protect us from damage, detects touch, and much more.  It also acts as a filter.  Dirt and grime get stuck to its surface, rather than affecting the inner parts of the body.

Why am I talking about this?  Well, because your carpet is, in many ways, the skin of your house.  While you might not think of it as part of the overall construction of the home – that’s reserved for things like the foundation, the wiring, etc. – it is very important to the health of the house since the carpet acts as a filter.  You see, between the walls and the floor, there are small gaps that draw in air.   This pulls air down through the carpet and into this gap, and any dust, allergens, or contaminants in the air are filtered out by the carpet, which can lead to filtration stains.

In order to clean and protect this filter, the skin of your home, you need a company like Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning.  Why? Well, if you don’t, the carpet can become so filled with the garbage it has filtered out, that it will not only look bad, but it walking on it will also cause the dust and allergens to be kicked back up, affecting the indoor air quality of your home.  Our carpet cleaning system, which scrubs upwards from the pile, removes these dirt and stains, giving your carpet a new lease on life.  This refreshes the biggest filter in your house, and greatly helps improve the air quality in your home.
