With the CO2 level skyrocketing, carpet cleaners are being urged to stay out of the water to save lives.
But there is a bigger reason to keep your carpet cleaner out of water.
Carpet cleaning, which is used to remove stains from carpets, is known to cause algae blooms, which can cause respiratory and eye problems.
According to a report published in the scientific journal Environmental Science & Technology, algae blooming is one of the main reasons behind the increased incidence of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, including asthma, COPD, hypertension and dementia.
The study also found that carpets made of carpets from factories are more likely to have the problem of CO2.
“We think the main reason is that carpeting is so hard, so it’s not easy to remove the CO 2 ,” says John Riddell, a senior scientist at Carbona, an Australian carpet cleaning company.
Riddell says that although carpets are designed to be clean, it’s still important to avoid them from the water.
“You can do a lot of cleaning in the house, but if you’re cleaning in a car, then you’re probably going to have to do it outdoors,” he says.
Ridden carpets that have already been used to decorate homes can also be harmful.
“A lot of people get really sick from carpentry, and that’s not necessarily a good thing,” Riddella says.
He says carpets should be washed daily and kept in a dry area of the house.
“But if it’s going to be the case that you’re going to get carpets in the car, you’d better make sure that the carpets have a pH of 3.5 or less.”
Carpet cleaners are also not designed to get rid of algae.
So how can you make sure you don’t get the algae?
Riddells advice is simple.
“Just get rid the carpet and if it comes in contact with any of the algae it’ll get diluted,” he said.
Ridging carpets off the ground is also a good way to reduce CO2 emissions, but Riddes also warns against using too much carpet cleaning.
“It’s very important that we keep carpets out of our carport, but not too much,” he explains.
“When you’re doing carpentry carpets don’t just go in and out, they need to be wet.”
Riddells company, which has offices in Melbourne and Sydney, has made its own carpet cleaning products.
“I think the carpet cleaner that I use is the best in terms of its pH, so if you get carpet cleaners in the home you should also get carpett cleaner, just because carpets will be able to get into the carpet,” he advises.
