Nobody wants to talk about it, but it’s a subject that has to be aired out once in awhile: what’s living inside your carpet right now? There’s a bunch of harmful bacteria, but there’s also dead skin cells, pollen, pet dander, and a bunch of other stuff.
Keeping Your Carpets Clean
Nobody is going to whip out the Rug Doctor every single day, even though we actually should. Carpets play host to a lot of bacteria, and it’s a constant factor to every time you get sick, whenever you feel fuzzy-headed, and if your pets fall ill. So how are you going to keep them clean? Keep your shoes at the door, vacuum every day, and shampoo your carpet at least once a week?
Allergens Lurk Everywhere
Allergies measure differently on a scale of severity. Some people may only be suffering every now and again, but those of us (you know who you are) who have severe allergies, really shouldn’t be breathing in all the stuff from our carpet on a daily basis. It can lower your quality of life, which is why it’s doubly important to clean your carpets regularly. Those with hardwood floors endure the same issues, but they are easier to manage when you can see everything.
A Bed For Bugs
Your rug, clean or otherwise, is a habitat for bugs and parasites to live in. On a hardwood surface, they’re less likely to survive and thrive. Those with carpet throughout their home are much more like to need constant pest control maintaining their property, sometimes on a monthly basis. Take the preventative measures, because if you don’t, the problem is much harder to get rid of once it has a foothold in your home.
So What’s In The Carpet?
You’re not going to like this, but 75% of your own biological compounds are in those carpets, and they’re making up bacteria and dust. You’re shedding skin, breathing it back in, and causing a slow burning respiratory problem over time. When you can’t consistently breathe clean air, your lungs sit at a certain threshold of efficiency. Apart from that, many carpets still have chemicals in them that were preserving their shape and softness when they were on the racks of the warehouse. If you’ve ever had new carpets installed, then you know that smell the first three days that the carpet has been laid. It’s not good.
