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 grosses things most commonly found in carpets that, if not taken care of, can cause allergies 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.

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 allergens. This can be from either human hair, skin, and dander or that of your pets.

 

Odors

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.
