Poor Air Quality? Dirty Carpets and Floors Aren’t Helping

While your floors and carpets may look clean, they're likely housing thousands of dust and dirt particles that can be kicked into the air. Frequent cleaning is key for healthier air and surfaces.

Check Your Home For Dirty Carpets

Although dust and dirt may live on your carpets, using fans and simply moving about your house can kick up and circulate these pollutants into your air. If you’re experiencing more severe allergies or cold-like symptoms, be sure to check for dirty carpets to see if they’re causing your home’s poor air quality.

How to check for dirty carpets

  • Indoor air pollution can cause allergy and asthma problems or worsen the problem you might already have. If you feel lousy at home but better everywhere else, the problem could be in the air.

  • Check your home for signs of dust or dirt build up. Floors, and carpets in particular, are the most likely to collect dust, dirt, and dander.

Don’t think dirty carpets are the issue? Consider other indoor allergy culprits.

What To Do If You Have Dirty Carpets

The best thing you can do is routinely clean your floors and carpets. Dust sweepers, vacuums, and mops are great everyday tools, but consider more specialized cleaning devices if you want to get into the nooks and crannies of your carpets.
