• Could Your Carpets be Making You Sick?


    Many people spend a lot of money to fill their homes with carpets. They're beautiful, comfortable, easy to care for and quite practical. But there can be a downside. Could your carpets be making you sick? Let's take a look at what you might not know that could be affecting you every day.

    What’s in Your Carpet?

    Your carpet is an intricate weave of fibers; that's what makes your flooring so soft and comfy. They're also what can trap the things that could be making you sick. It's not just dust and dirt that gets tracked into your carpet, but so many other things. Here are a few examples:

    • Dust mites are one of the most common culprits when it comes to compromising your well-being. These can be hugely irritating to most people, but especially people with respiratory issues, including asthma.
    • Viruses and bacteria can thrive in your carpeting. Even Norovirus, the cause of that hideous stomach bug that goes around in the winter, can live in your carpet for weeks.
    • Mold and mildew are allergens that can cause a variety of different health problems. They often thrive in the fibers of your carpet. Everything from headaches and congestion to fatigue and respiratory issues can result from exposure to mold.

    What Can You Do?

    The best way to combat carpet contaminants is with regular professional cleaning. Professional carpet cleaning can get rid of everything living in your carpet that ails you. Call in the experts every 12-18 months to keep your flooring clean and your health in check.
