What could be in my carpet?

Things that could be living in your carpet!

I would like to start by saying this page is NOT for the faint hearted, as I’m going be explaining exactly what could be living in your carpets and why it is so important to get them professionally cleaned!

  1. The five-second rule is one we often apply when food falls on the floor and we innocently scoop it back up. But did you know that bacteria can live for up to FOUR WEEKS in your carpet (yuck) and if there is any lurking beneath your feet, that bacteria can easily spread to your food?
  2. Norovirus (the virus that causes tummy upsets) can survive on an uncleaned carpet for more than a month!
  3. A single person sheds about 1.5 million skin flakes an hour, most of which becomes floats and embeds in our carpets.
  4. A carpet can hold up to 4 times its own weight in dirt.
  5. Per square inch, a carpet can hold up to 2000x more dirt and bacteria then a household toilet seat!​

Here at EasyClean Solutions, we recommend that you have your carpets cleaned every 6 months. Failing this, you should aim for at least every 12 months in order to reduce the risks associated with dirty carpets. Prevention is always better than cure, so protect your health by contacting our team of top rated carpet cleaners for full assistance.

Carpet Cleaning

However carefully you treat your carpets, over time they inevitably become soiled and start to look a little tired & run down. At EasyClean Solutions, we recommend that carpets are vacuumed every day; however, we appreciate that busy lifestyles do not always make this possible.

Areas of high traffic are particularly at risk, and carpets naturally attract dirt, germs and all types of bacteria including, cigarette smoke, dust and pollen.
