Have you ever walked into a room or finished vacuuming and all the sudden had to sneeze? If the carpet hasn’t been cleaned in awhile, there can be all kinds of allergens and even dangerous bacteria lurking within your carpet fibers.
If you’re not using a good vacuum on top of not having had your carpets professionally cleaned, then you can just imagine what you’re also throwing into the air you are breathing. If you have pets in your home, then you should be aware that they actually produce allergens. Time and time again, they will be deposited into your carpet fibers, so get ready for a big jolt.
Now group that with pet urine issues and all kinds of foot traffic and whatever else contributes to hidden allergens and bacteria in your carpet. Imagine what you would see if it all was made visible to the eye. Think about what would happen if you ripped your carpet up and started shaking it out. Does it make you sick?
It should! You should be cleaning your carpets every few months so that you don’t have to worry about these issues. As mentioned, some of them can even be more dangerous than you might think. Even if you don’t have pets in your home, dangerous bacteria and allergens are still in your carpet.
Did you know that salmonella can be in your carpet as well? You wouldn’t want to eat food or leave food around that contains this type of bacteria, so why would you want to just leave it sitting in your carpet? It makes sense once you know about all this stuff to take action right? It truly is going to make for healthier living inside your home. You need to think about that so that you can get everything going in the right direction with your carpets and indoor air quality.
