What makes your carpet dirty?
While carpets can be a decorative flooring option for homes, it’s a germ hotspot and can be 4,000 times dirtier than toilet seats. Our shoes are the primary habitat to millions of germs that feed on dirt picked up from the street, infiltrating homes everywhere.
It is common belief that normal vacuuming gets rid of this accumulated dirt that has been ground into the carpet fibers, however, little do we know that this is not accurate. Vacuums blow out the dirt and dust you have vacuumed up in the first place, making it one of the top 5 dirtiest places at home, and leaving the deep fibers of the carpet filled with harmful bacteria untouched.
Walking at home spreads this bacteria and fine particles become airborne, causing you and your family to inhale contaminated indoor air.
