Do I Really Need My Carpet Cleaned?
Can you believe that 2014 is almost over? This year flew by in a blink of an eye! Many of you are preparing for the upcoming holiday festivities and get togethers with family and friends. This time of year always brings joy and happiness to many.
With all of the craziness that goes into finding the perfect gift for your loved ones, have you stopped and thought about giving the gift of a carpet cleaning this year?
Before you roll your eyes consider the following facts my friends.
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.
As you can see a carpet that isn’t properly maintained can be hazardous to you and your family’s health.
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

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? Cleaning allows you to see the impact of your efforts in real time, which in turn reduces the stress in your life.
