How Clean Is your Carpet?

How clean is your carpet

If you are like most people in the Bakersfield area you do everything possible to keep your carpet looking fresh and clean.

The professional carpet cleaners at Safari Carpet Cleaning in Bakersfield would like to share some facts about your carpet that you may not want to hear.

Your carpet is a place where people walk, pets sleep, kids play and you want to keep it clean and sanitary.

How Clean is Your Carpet?
Unfortunately, just vacuuming is not enough. In fact your vacuum cleaner is a major hiding place for germs because they spit bacteria, dust, and allergens back into the air.

“Both vacuum cleaning and the act of vacuuming can release and re-suspend dust and allergens, leading to increased exposure,” write study researchers from Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia.

Now, we are saying you should stop vacuuming, for a vacuum to do more harm than good, it has to be a really old vacuum cleaner that has never been cleaned. In general, most vacuums do take up more dust, dirt, and allergens than they release.

Depending on the traffic and use of your carpet, we recommend that you have it professionally cleaned at least once a year. For families with kids, pets, and heavy traffic you may want to consider several times a year as needed.

Here a few other facts about your carpet

  • A carpet can hold 4x its weight in dirt. Just by walking on them we add several pounds of dirt every year.
