Carpeting can be a great option at home. It adds warmth, comfort and certainly feels good on bare feet. But since it gets all the traffic, it tends to get pretty filthy over time. In fact, according to Men’s Health, it’s a germ hotspot and can be 4,000 times dirtier than your toilet seat — ew! “Rugs are botanical and zoological parks,” microbiologist Dr. Philip Tierno told the magazine, and mentioned that they can have many different organisms living in them. Sorry to bring this up but the more you know the better you are off in my opinion.
So what’s the best way to clean a carpet? Well, Men’s Health suggests hiring a professional once a year for a deep steam-cleaning. But weekly maintenance is super important as well. We recommend vacuuming regularly this itself can get rid of a lot if not 50-60 precent of dry soil. Be sure to give us a call the next time you want your carpet steam cleaned. We look forward to the opportunity to show you how great your carpet can look again.
