What's Hiding In Your Carpet?
What Could Be Lurking In Your Carpet?.
Everything that lands on your carpet could have the potential to stay there, even if it's not an obvious stain.
Dust particles, hair, mould spores and pet dander.
Almost invisible to the naked eye, they fall off your clothing and land on your floors. Walking over carpet grinds these small particles into the fibres and underlay, often leaving a carpet that looks clean but can negatively impact the air in your home.
Stains are also a problem. For example, stains caused by red wine or pet urine can actually provide a food source for bacteria living in your carpets.
Getting rid of carpet culprits
Vacuuming is always the first step in removing contaminants from your carpeting. Make sure to vacuum one or two times per week, and use a newer vacuum with powerful suction and built-in HEPA filters for a better chance of pulling up mites, allergens and dirt. But even the best vacuum can't remove everything that hides in your carpet.
To deal with the bulk of the particles, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning service.
Most companies use steam cleaning or dry-cleaning techniques to eliminate contaminants and remove stubborn stains. Professional carpet cleaners recommend at least one cleaning per year, but high-traffic areas might require more frequent cleanings.
