How to clean and care my carpet

Making sure your carpets are constantly kept clean and in good condition is very important to most home owners.  When the carpets in the home are clean and in good condition it makes the entire place appear in better shape.  Besides the aesthetic aspect there is also the every important health benefit of having carpets free of dust and allergens.  Always remember that by cleaning your carpets with proper technique you also extend its look and its life.

The most important and simple thing you can do is ensure you vacuum your carpet on a weekly basis.  The vacuum must have strong suction and rotating brushes on the power head to ensure the dirt is loosened from the carpet fibres and well extracted.  For areas with lots of furniture or stairs it a good canister vacuum is recommended for getting into all those hard to reach places and for easier and better extraction of the dirt on the stairs.

 
NON-TOXIC PRODUCTS

Did you know that common household chemicals may gradually be making you and your family sick?
Did you know that Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease are caused primarily by environmental influences such as exposure to toxins?
Did you know that the inside of a typical American home is ten times more toxic than outdoors?

 

The EPA found that airborne chemical levels in homes were as much as seventy times higher than outside.  Americans spend 80%-90% of their time indoors.  The typical home now contains over sixty-three hazardous products that together contain hundreds of different chemicals.  Since World War II there has been a dramatic rise in the number of people-made chemicals that we use in our homes, and an equally dramatic rise in the incidence of certain chronic health problems.  In the early 1900's the ration of people contracting cancer was one in fifty.  Today, one out of every three people get cancer, and the prediction in the near future is every other person will get cancer.  There has been a significant rise in birth defects, infertility, asthma, attention deficit disorder, and central nervous system disorders.  We breathe chemical vapors from the household products in our air (notice the off-gas smells as you walk down the cleaning product aisle in your grocery store).   We absorb chemicals into our skin while using household products to clean our homes or make our bodies clean and smell good.  We swallow small amounts of chemicals when we gargle, or when we eat food from dishes that have been cleaned with chemicals and still contain a thin residue.  The home is also where over 1.5 million young children are poisoned each year, and most of the time they are poisoned by a cleaning or personal care product!

So what are the alternatives?  We  we can choose what we use with scrutiny and care, and we can become involved politically.  Cancer is a political issue.  The food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the radiation we are exposed to, where we live, what kind of work we do and the stresses that we suffer -- these issues are responsible for at least 80% of all cancers.  For instance, under current EPA regulations, as many as 60 cancer-causing pesticides can legally be used in the most commonly eaten foods.  Some of these foods are allowed to contain 20 or more carcinogens, making it impossible to measure how much of which ingredient is doing the most damage.  Our society as a whole must take responsibility for the environmental contamination that is killing us.  The easiest way to take charge is by choosing what we purchase and the way we do things.
