Why Should You Clean Your Carpets Regularly?

Can you believe that 2015 is over? This year flew by in a blink of an eye! Many of us are taking down the Christmas tree, stowing away the ornaments and enjoying the gifts we received. We’re also noticing the stains in our carpeting and grout, the hidden spills left by guests and have resolved to have our carpets cleaned.

Your Invisible Friends

Can you answer this simple question? Which is dirtier a toilet seat or your carpet? This is a no-brainer right? Everyone knows that toilets can be gross and disgusting right?

What if I told you that your carpet actually contains more germs than the toilet in your house? Does that make you think a little?

According to Dr. Philip Tierno Jr. a microbiologist and immunologist at New York University Langone Medical Center and author of “The Secret Life of Germs” made the startling discovery. Dr. Tierno’s research found that your carpet contains more than 200,000 bacteria per square inch of carpet. This makes your carpet 4,000 times dirtier than your toilet seat!! Carpets collect all kinds of contaminants such as pet dander, pollen, dirt and skin cells. Your carpet is literally a magnet for germs because after all, your carpeting is the largest filter in your home.

As you can see a carpet that isn’t properly maintained can be hazardous to you and your family’s health. Dirty carpeting affects indoor air quality and the germs easily attach to the bottom of your feet, to your pets favorite chew, and yes, to that sucker your child drops and then sticks back into his mouth.

Mold Causing Asthma?

A soiled carpet that is left unchecked can spawn nasty contaminants such as mold, which now has been linked to the rising asthma epidemic in this country.

According to a recent study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology found that four common mold species Cladosporium, Alternaria, Penicillium and Aspergillus increased the risk of asthma symptoms to those exposed by 48%.

The last thing you need is mold growing in your carpet. A carpet that is regularly cleaned by our professional carpet cleaning technicians will eliminate any chance of mold growing in your carpet!

A Clean Home Reduces Stress

Starting the year of on the right foot is always a good idea. January 1 gives everyone a blank slate to start over again and do things differently. Having a clean home and a clean carpet can help get your year off to a great start. Did you know that having a clean home environment can reduce your stress levels?
