Did You Know That Typical Carpets Are 4000 Times Dirtier Than Toilet Seats?

It’s not something we like to admit but most carpets are dirtier than we think. Here are just a few scary facts:

  1. Your carpet is the biggest air filter in your home. The inside of your house acts like a trap for dust, dirt, pet dander, and more. In fact, indoor air usually contains twice as much dust as the air outside.
  2. Each ounce of carpet dust can support up to 2,000 dust mites, thriving on dead skin cells and nesting in your carpet. The residue they leave behind mixes with dust and becomes airborne, and can become a cause of allergies.
  3. Every year, you’ll end up accumulating several pounds of soil in and under your carpet.

While vacuuming helps a good deep clean with a Rug Doctor once a year is a MUST. Not only will your carpet look and smell better it will be ready to keep filtering the air and trapping allergens, at least until the next deep clean 😉
