Vancouver Carpet Cleaners Warns About Dangers Down UnderFebruary 23th, 2018 | by Angelo | 0
No, this isn’t a dire warning about all the dangerous animals in Australia. As a team of Vancouver carpet cleaners, we’re talking about what’s underfoot. Most people don’t want to consider what’s in their carpets, but it’s often an unsanitary medley of bacteria, pollen, dead skin, and dust that’s tracked in all year round. And left untreated, it only gets worse.
Most people don’t notice what’s being tracked into their homes. However, with pets and children, the mess will certainly spread. In fact, a research paper published in 2001 found the average indoor carpet is about 4,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat, with about 200,000 bacteria per square inch.
If allergies are a factor, the problem is even more immediate. Tracking pollen or dust inside means creating a reservoir of carpet-embedded allergens that can adversely affect people with mild or severe allergies. Depending on the health of the sufferer, the effects can range from annoying to debilitating.
Of course, no article on carpet cleaning can neglect dust mites. All human beings shed thousands of skin cells all the time, which is the primary food source of dust mites. It’s nasty, but that is the main source of dust.
So, what are the solutions? While vacuuming is a good start, it’s not nearly enough in the long run. All home owners, especially those with allergies (or allergy sufferers), should consider getting all carpets deep-cleaned by a professional service at least twice a year.
And by professional, we don’t mean a DIY contraption, which can leave carpets damp, leading to mould growth and more agony for allergy sufferers. We mean an honest to goodness person with industrial strength equipment and cleaning solvents who can purge dirt, freshen, and long-set attend to spills and stains.
