The most dangerous things in your home are often what you can’t see—like the harmful contaminants hidden in your carpet.
What Can Be Found In Common Household Carpets
Here are just a few of the scary things most commonly found in carpets that, if not taken care of, can cause illnesses and negatively impact the indoor air quality of your home. Our non-toxic carpet cleaning in Upland, CA and surrounding areas will help protect you, your family, and your pets.
Did you know that your carpet likely has a whopping 40,000 times more bacteria than your toilet seat? Salmonella, Staph, and E Coli, although unseen, pose significant health risks to you and your family. These bacteria can be deposited in the air, grow when food or drinks are spilled, or spread around with foot traffic.
Dirt, Dust, And Soil
Almost 40 pounds of harmful dust accumulates each year in the average U.S. home. Dirt can also be tracked in from the outdoors. These can cause a variety of respiratory issues and allergies.
Dead Skin, Hair, And Dander
The average person sheds 1.5 million skin cells per day. These cells are what fleas, ticks, and dust mites feed on—which cause allergies and other illnesses. This can be from either human hair, skin, and dander or that of your pets.
Bugs feed on hair and skin flakes, food particles, and more. Dust mites—a common bug found in carpet—is one of the leading causes of chronic allergies.
Dust mites feed on dead skins that rapidly accumulate in carpets. Other allergens like pollen, animal hair, and outdoor debris can also be tracked into your carpet. Allergies can lead to dangerous respiratory issues and trigger asthma.
Carpets absorb odors from the air and from spills deposited on the floor. Pet urine—the leading cause of recurring carpet odor—must be permanently removed with professional pet urine and odor removal treatment.
Mold And Mildew
When carpets take on moisture, the risk of mold and mildew growth is significant. These can cause a variety of very serious health risks if inhaled. Be sure to choose a carpet cleaning method that uses less water and dries quickly.
