What’s Hiding Beneath Your Carpet

On a day-to-day basis, your carpet is subjected to any variety of situations. High levels of foot traffic, common spills and stains, and even accidents caused by your furry friends just to name a few. And all of these situations will start to show on your carpet. In addition to visible wear, these conditions reduce your carpets overall health and the longevity of your investment.

It’s inevitable your carpet will need to be professionally cleaned every now and then. This not only protects you from harmful bacteria and toxins but helps to maintain a healthy living environment and increases the life of your carpet.

At first glance, it might not appear that your carpet is that dirty. However, the majority of bacteria present in carpeting is invisible to the naked eye. Over time, foot traffic spreads dust and debris and serves as the breeding ground for dust mites and an array of viruses and bacteria.

And these bacteria certainly don’t play fair – they’re linked to numerous allergens and illnesses within your own home. These include asthma, hay fever, itchy skin, irritated and watery eyes, plus illnesses such as the Norovirus and Micrococcus (skin infections and meningitis).

Add additional common household problems such as mold and mildew growth, and now your home is less sanitary than the outside world. In fact, unclean carpets can contain up to 200,000 bacteria per square inch!

Dust mites and bed bugs aren’t the only culprits for unhealthy carpets though. In fact, humans are part of it too. On average, your body sheds about 1.5 million skins flakes! Unfortunately, it happens to be a dust mites favorite snack. Without proper treatment, a build-up of shed human skin encourages allergy-inducing bugs to stick around.

Now, you may think that a simple vacuum cleaning is enough to solve this problem. But the root of this problem is often found deep below your carpets and requires a professional carpet cleaning service to remove. But hey, that’s why Zerorez is here!  

With Zerorez, you can be sure your carpets are clean (and we mean really clean) and free from harmful germs and bacteria. And unlike the other guys, we don’t flood your carpets with hot water, so they dry faster. Plus we also don’t use harsh chemicals, detergents, or soaps.

This ensures no damage is done to the backing of your carpet and that water has no opportunity to seep below your carpets into the padding. This prohibits the growth of mold and mildew beneath the surface level and leaves you with dry carpets in half the time.
