Want to know something unsettling? Over 100,000 dust mites can be found in around 10 square feet of carpet. These mites reproduce and die every 3 weeks.
Fungi and molds are a known source of allergies and certain types can release toxic chemicals known as mycotoxins.
Bacteria found in urine stains may cause sinusitis, watery eyes, allergies, and inflammation of the airways. It can cause even more significant health issues in people who have compromised immune systems.
These blood sucking critters will take up residence under carpeting, creeping up into beds to reproduce and feed. YUCK! Your children play on that carpet!
They feed on mostly cloth fibers including that which your carpet is made of, but may also sneak into dry food stores, particularly grains and animal feed.
Carpet is the perfect environment for both of these annoying parasites to not only feed on bacteria, but also nest their eggs! Gross!
The average human sheds 1.5 million skin flakes in a single hour – a single hour! On average, people spend 90% of their time indoors. Do the math…
Even if you don’t have any pets, dander can come in on shoes, blow in through doors and windows or be brought in with visitors and then stored right in your carpet.
