What Germs Are Lurking In Your Carpets?

24 Oct 2018


There’s nothing like the feeling of walking barefoot across, lush, fresh and bouncy carpets.


A beautifully clean carpet adds comfort, practicality and luxury to a room.


But there’s a problem with carpets, or any type of flooring.


Vacuuming simply won’t remove the allergens that cause many of our allergic reactions and health problems that are often dismissed as “one of those things.”


In fact, most people suffer from niggles that are possibly caused by germs, mites or bacteria harbored in our flooring.


Serious consideration needs to be given to having your carpets regularly cleaned. It’s not purely for appearance or to prolong their lifespan – it’s predominately for health!


Here’s what you’ll usually find looking in your carpets, flooring and upholstery:


  • Dust Mites (High Association With Allergies)

  • Pollen

  • Mold Spores

  • Dead Insects

  • Pet Hair & Skin / Dander (High Association With Allergies)

  • Pesticides

  • Grease

  • Embedded Dirt

  • Bacteria


The Most Effective Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Method For Health


These are just a few of the many allergens that love a dirty carpet. And so it is clear that you need to thoroughly clean these surfaces at least every 12-18 months! And more frequently if you have pets and young children.


The best method to deal effectively with these issues is to hire a professional carpet cleaning company that uses the Hot Water Extraction (HWE) method of cleaning.


Although dry cleans are a valid method of carrying out maintenance cleaning, nothing can beat the sanitizing results of HWE.
