FACT #1 Looks Aren’t Everything! Modern carpeting is a technological marvel. It was designed to hide dirt and, boy, does it do a good job! You can literally pour a pound of potting soil in one square foot of a quality nylon carpet, rub it in and IT WILL DISAPPEAR! That means all of the junk (dander, fumes, pollutants, germs, bacteria, fleas, etc.) that comes into your home is safely hidden in your carpet!
FACT #2 Dirt, Sand and Grit are Killing It! What would happen if you rubbed sandpaper all over that beautiful clear coat paint on your car… what a disaster! Well, each day I pull pounds of gritty soil out of base of peoples carpets. And it’s in yours too! This gritty soil goes to work on your carpet just like tiny saws – cutting and tearing into your carpet’s delicate fibers, giving it that worn, dull look. This is the #1 cause of your carpet’s ugly, faded and worn appearance.
FACT #3 Traffic Lane Trouble! Here’s the scoop: The longer you wait to clean your carpet, the more soil becomes permanent. It locks onto the fibers, and through a process called ‘oxidation’, the soil bonds with the carpet, permanently attaching to it. You can tell when this happens because the carpet color changes. If you wait too long, you’ve thrown away the key to unlock the dirt and oily pollutants in the traffic lanes.
“But My Carpets Don’t Look Dirty!” Well, Maybe We Should Take a Closer Look! Guess what? Looks aren’t everything! Always clean FIRST for your family’s health and THEN for appearance. In the average home over two million dust mites feed on dead skin scales and other debris. They hide in our carpet, upholstery, drapes, mattress, and our pillows. We live in an area with high humidity — which is exactly what these nasty guys just love.
It’s What We Can’t See That is Harmful! The living room is particularly vulnerable for allergy sufferers since we spend almost 1/3 of our life in the living room. We shed skin scales (dust mite food) into our entire environment. Microscopic mite feces and corpses are so small that they blow up into the air as you walk around your house, and they get into your lungs. In the average home, dust mites can double their numbers in ten hours. You get 100,000 dead bodies and thirty million pieces of feces added to your home everyday. These allergens can be removed with our deep and thorough high heat extraction carpet cleaning!
Some people will go years without cleaning. Fully 80% of Americans who are suffering from allergies are allergic to airborne mite refuse. To limit their effect on your health, you need to clean your carpets and furniture more often. Is there a better time to clean your carpets than now?
