If for some reason your carpet has become damp from either repeated spillages or flood it is important to get this seen to as soon as possible. Microbial growth and volatile organic compounds flourish in carpet that is left damp and unclean and these carpets have been shown to cause bronchial asthma in those who are regularly exposed.
The presence of dust mites in dirty carpets would surely come as no shock. But what is a shocking thought is that even after the mites die their bodies can be inhaled by humans, causing nose and eye irritation as well as rashes.
Most people have a dust mite allergy and so it’s a good idea to have the fungi and bacteria that they feed off removed from the carpet for everyone’s comfort and health safety.
If you seem to be rundown with cold symptoms more often than you should be of late, it’s time to get your carpet cleaned by our team. Mould can grow and live on unclean carpets, which can cause respiratory issues. The idea of inhaling mould is bad enough but the bacteria that lives on the mould spores is what can really cause your body issues.
If you are already run down and in a weakened state you can become quite ill.
Shoes and feet
It’s possibly time to point out the obvious fact that many carpeted areas come into contact with feet and shoes. Let’s face it; neither of these items is exactly clean and often people can be carrying around a fungal skin infection such as tinea, on their feet, which will transfer to carpets.
This alone is enough to get carpets professionally cleaned but aside from the transference of bacteria to carpets from feet and shoes though, walking on carpet with bare feet can cause athlete’s foot. Any small cuts and openings in your skin can allow the harmful bacteria from carpets to enter your body.
Think for a moment if you have young children who are walking or crawling close to the carpet on a regular basis. Pick up the phone and call us at Best 1 Cleaning and Pest Management** **to arrange your carpet cleaning today.
