Boy, you really stepped in it this time!
A few examples to think about…We never really think about how literal that truly is. Does anyone ever stop and think about what they walk through on the street, in parks, in parking lots or on public floors and then track into their homes? The list is not pleasant.
- Animal urine and waste
- Bird droppings
- Human saliva from the ever unattractive habit of spitting on the ground
- Mucus from discarded tissue
- Rotten food particles
Just think about it. Millions and Millions of Bacteria Organisms with potential to invade your “space”.
And most people just go about their daily lives without paying a shred of attention to what they are bringing into their homes on the bottoms of their shoes. Tests have shown that a toilet seat can have about 1000 organisms of bacteria while the bottom of a shoe can have millions of bacteria. So many people worry about sitting on a public toilet seat but don’t think twice about leaving their shoes on after a day out when entering their homes.

Bacteria tracked into the carpet can cause infections to a person’s lungs, eyes and stomachs. Most especially affected are children under the age of two who spend most of their time playing on the floor and constantly putting their fingers in their mouths or touching their eyes.
Also highly affected are family members with respiratory difficulties or allergies.
While daily maintenance of vacuuming is helpful to keeping bacteria levels lower it is definitely not enough. In order to greatly reduce the risk of illness to everyone in the household, it is very important to have your carpets professionally cleaned depending on the level of usage. Normally soiled carpets in households with children and the elderly should be professionally cleaned every 6-12 months. Heavily soiled carpets are those in homes of large families or household with smokers or pets and should be professionally cleaned every 3-6 months. Professionally cleaned carpets remove built up dirt and bacteria leaving your family with cleaner carpets and even fresher air to breathe for a much healthier environment.
