Think about the places you have visited today. Have you walked to the mailbox? Gone to the office? Maybe you went to the grocery store, or even a restaurant. Have you walked across the street or though a parking lot? Have you entered a public restroom? Imagine the stuff you walk on during your everyday jaunts. Think of things that you seen along the way and even those you couldn't see. And then the last place you go at the end of the day is your home. You come in and walk on the carpet and everything you have encountered during the day is deposited there.
Then..the children come home from school and play around on the floor with the dog or watch T.V. Just imagine some of the stuff that's in your carpet: Bacteria, Fungus, Chemicals, Air Pollutants, Car Exhaust, Tobacco Smoke, Pollen, Grease, Grime, Pet Stains, Soot, Tar, Pet Hair, and much more! These all combine to produce odors and general unhealthy appearance to your carpet. It's enough to make you sick! That's why it is so important to keep our carpets regularly cleaned and maintained. Imagine if you only mopped your floors once a year. The same contaminants that are tracked onto your vinyl floors are also embedded in your carpeting. To attain a healthier in door environment, the EPA Recommends carpet cleaning at least once a year if not more. In fact, you might be surprised at just how often the EPA recommends you clean your carpet.
