Everybody loves the look and feel of a freshly cleaned carpet and upholstery – but in addition to the attractiveness of a clean carpet and couch, did you know it also helps your family stay healthy? We don’t want to scare you or gross you out, but Dr. Tierno of NYU’s Langone Medical Center has done the research and has found that carpet can contain a 200,000 bacteria per square inch! Most of these bacteria are harmless, however others like E. coli, salmonella, and staphylococcus, can have an impact on your familiy’s health. The solution? Get your carpets and upholstery cleaned by a professional like All Star Carpet Cleaning!
Why doesn’t regular vaccuming remove these bacteria and germs?
Regular vacuuming provides a lot of benefits in keeping your home clean and fresh. Removing pet dander, dirt and food particles via regular vacuuming is a great way to start the cleaning process. But it’s just not enough to keep your family healthy. Germs like those mentioned above are best removed by cleaning with a process that kills the bacteria – either via hot steam cleaning or a chemical treatment. At All Star Carpet Cleaning, we use truck mounted steam cleaning – which ensures the water temperature in our steam cleaning process meets the high temperature required to kill those bacteria. We can treat both your carpets and upholstery in your home with this process so that you can be confidient that the surfaces your family (especially kids) come into contact with are clean and pose a minimal health threat to your family.
Can’t I just spot treat if something nasty is on my carpet or my couch?
Like vacuuming, spot treatment is a great way to address the immediate issue, however it doesn’t go far enough. Obviously, if a family member is sick and vomit, mucus or feces ends up on a soft surface like carpet or upholstery, it needs to be cleaned and disinfected immediately. We can reocmmend some great products for that. However, that doesn’t go far enough. Spot cleaning only addresses what you can see. Germs are invisible and may have spread beyond the stain you are removing. In addition, bacteria like E. coli arrive in your home on the shoes of your family and friends, and if you have pets, they can also track in these germs on their feet and fur. The best way to eliminate these invisible health threats is to Steam Clean your carpets on a regular basis. If it’s been more than a year since you have had your carpets steam cleaned – we recommend you do it now!
At All Star Carpet Cleaning, we recommend that you use our Truck Mounted Steam Cleaning Service to remove bacteria from your home. You and your family can breathe easier, and make the most of a fresh clean and safe home knowing that you’ve thoroughly cleaned your home with the best treatment possible.
