Filters are everywhere- your car, your homes HVAC, even your water canister. But there is one filter that needs regular servicing you might not have thought of- your homes carpets!
FACT: Your carpets act like a giant filter for your health. It captures dirt, dust, pollen, bacteria, dust mites, and their waste, and the bacteria that feed on it.
Government studies have shown that when you remove carpets from properties, people get sick four times more often!! But like any filter, your carpets become saturated and ineffective over time- creating a need for professional quality cleaning. Vacuuming is important, but even if you vacuum every day it doesn’t kill bacteria that’s deep down in your carpets.
The EPA found that professional carpet cleaning actually gets carpets 1500 percent cleaner that daily vacuuming. Professionals use steaming hot water that kills germs and bacteria that are sitting in your homes carpets!
NEW CARPETS! Exciting! The smell, the coziness, there's nothing quite like it.
