Carpet Cleaning – Zero Res Cleaning Agents
Carpets generally require a lot of care and maintenance. There are many carpet cleaning agents available in markets. However, most of them leave behind a characteristic smell after they have been used on carpets. This means that the cleaning fluid has left a residue. The residue may prevent pests from getting near the carpet or help protect the carpet from spills, stains and the growth of fungus. However, the residues left by the cleaning agent may be harmful. Not only can the residues be toxic to humans, but they can also pollute all the air in the room.
The cleaning agent may release tiny particles into the air in the room, which remain suspended in the air, neither moving out of the room, nor settling down. These particles are called colloidal pollutants. They range in size from a few molecules to several nanometers or even micrometers in diameter. These colloidal particles may or may not be harmful. While some can cause severe lung infections and other breathing disorders like asthma, wheezing, etc., others can be completely harmless. Some carpet cleaning solutions can also release substances into the atmosphere that pollute the Earth’s atmosphere.
Due to the increasing consciousness about global warming among other pollution issues, manufacturers today have started producing cleaning agents that supposedly do not leave any residue after having performed their cleaning action. These cleaning agents are called ‘zero res’ cleaning substances. They have the same cleaning action as other normal solutions available in the market, except that they do not leave behind any residues. These cleaning agents may be slightly more expensive, but are worth it, due to the fact they do not pollute or cause harm to humans or animals in any way.
Moreover, some zero res solutions that are currently being manufactured have certain advantages over the normal types as well. They are capable of removing oily stains, grease and other hard-to-remove substances from carpets without damaging the carpet fibre or material in any way. There is always the risk of damage to carpet colouring and fibre weakening when it comes to normal cleaning agents, that may be too harsh on the material. After beating the dust out of your carpet, you can spray it with zero res cleaning solutions without having to worry about any damage to the carpet.
