Athlete’s Foot and Carpet Cleaning

Purchasing A New Home?  Better Clean Those Carpets….

If you’ve recently purchased a home, prior to moving in you may want to have the carpeting cleaned to potentially avoid suffering from athletics foot. If the previous homeowners had athletics foot, spores of this condition will flake off and imbed in the carpet fibers just waiting on a new host.

Fungus can live in shoes and carpets for years in spore form. Simply vacuuming or mopping the area periodically cannot adequately protect you from fungus tracked in from the gym, public pool or flaked off by a host. For homeowners, bathrooms, carpeted areas and swimming pool areas are particularly guilty of spreading athlete’s foot fungus as well as wart viruses. Fungus and wart viruses are contagious to all occupants of a household.

Toenail fungus usually coexists with athlete’s foot after it has a chance to get beneath the toenails and begin digesting your nails causing thickening, turning the nails yellow, black, brown, or even green. Most advanced nail fungus is a mixture of these colors with yellow being the predominate color.

Fungal toenails frequently have a foul odor due to the fungus rotting the nail. The appearance of fungal nails can be horrifying. The infection begins with the tip or corner of the nail turning white and detaching from the nail bed once the infection begins rotting the nail. This is the time to seek treatment to prevent further damage.
