Health Benefits of Professional Carpet Cleaning

carpet cleaning daventry, northampton

Most of us vacuum our carpets on a regular basis, however there is much more to cleaning carpets than just upkeep and appearance of your home. Many people are unaware of the health benefits that a professional carpet clean can bring.

The pollutants and allergens trapped deep within your carpet can aggravate skin and lung conditions causing rashes or breathing difficulties. Harmful bacteria such as MRSA  and Staphylococcus  can find a home in your carpet causing risk of infection. Dangerous pollutants such as lead, diesel particulates, nicotine, and micro-plastics can lead to serious health complications.

What is Hiding in your Carpet?

Harmful Bacteria


Harmful bacteria can enter your carpet in many ways, including from shoes, pets or food stains.  If you have young children they will be at most risk from getting ill because they are closer to the ground and their immune system is not fully developed.   Our high tech carpet and upholstery disinfection system kills 99.9% of bacteria, reducing the risk of infection and giving you the peace of mind you deserve. 



 If you or some of the people you live with suffer from respiratory condition or have an allergy, carpet cleaning is a must. Our powerful hot water extraction system penetrates deep in to the carpet  to remove pollen, dust and other allergens, which can provoke severe body reactions in some cases.  In such households a professional carpet clean by Tempest improves the quality of life immensely. 

Dust Mites


  Although invisible to the human eye, dust mites  are commonly found in the home. The body pieces and faeces of dust mites are allergens which can cause people to suffer harmful reactions if not removed.   Our hot water extraction system kills dust mites that are embedded in the carpet by blasting them at high temperatures and removing their waste. It proves an extremely effective way to remove them once and for all. 

Mould Spores


 The humid British climate creates ideal conditions for mould to grow on your carpet right inside of your home. Research has shown that breathing mould spores is more harmful to the lungs than smoking cigarettes.  Our cleaning system includes a drying element which removes any moisture left behind, removing any mould that was there previously and helping prevent any new growths from appearing. 



Pollutants can take many forms. Diesel particulates, pesticides, micro-plastics, nicotine and even traces of lead are found in carpets. When you move around on your carpets, pollutants are released and contaminate your home affecting the health of your family.  Tempest use specially developed  formulas and a powerful extraction unit to remove the trapped pollutants, regardless of how deep they may be trapped.  



 Dirty carpets retain unpleasant odours and no matter how often you vacuum them, the smell won’t go. They can come from many different sources for example smoking, pet accidents or food spills. Our high tech cleaning system will remove almost any bad smell. It is proven that bad smells affect your moods negatively, while pleasant aromas promote relaxation and positivity leading to a healthier home environment.
