What is one of the dirtiest locations of your house?
You thought of the bathroom, right?
But did you know that carpets and area rugs are home to many more critters?
Philip Tierno, Jr., Ph.D., microbiologist, immunologist, and author of The Secret Life of Germs, has conducted research that indicates your carpet and rugs are a lot dirtier than you think. In fact, these areas have around 200,000 bacteria per square inch.
Wow, that’s about 4,000 times filthier than your toilet.
How long has it been since you’ve cleaned your oriental or other area rugs? Surprisingly, they’re often overlooked. Many people are diligent about cleaning their carpets every year (as recommended by carpet manufacturers), but neglect the rug in their front entryway or under the couch. This oversight then becomes a haven for communities of staphylococcus, streptococcus, and other bacteria and viruses.
But wait, that’s not all. Area rugs also are home to dust mites, fleas, pollen, and molds.
Now that’s disgusting. Isn’t it time you cleaned your whole house?
Keep your family healthy by regularly cleaning your area rugs. At Best Cleaners, microscopic guests are eliminated through cleaning methods that include extremely high temperatures. The result is a rug that is free of disgusting microbes and stains.
