What Is In Your Carpeting?

Posted: 04/01/2010

It is not everyday that someone looks down in their Philadelphia home and wonders what might actually be in their carpeting. If they are the ones who purchased it then they are most likely aware of the type of fabric(s), pre treatments and padding or cushioning that is used, but after a time when dirt and debris starts to make their way indoors and in to the carpeting how many people honestly give thought to the material that is now inside there? For starters, if you have a pet guess what is there? There will be pet dander (dandruff which is the animals skin), hair, musty hair, saliva, fecal matter, urine (not great if you have a cat), food (pet and human), other pets dander that your pet has associated with, grass, dirt and mud.

If you have children you can count on their providing you food stains, drink spills, possible toilet type accidents on the carpeting, paint, markers, clay, mud, dirt, rocks, ink, saliva, hair, and a myriad of other items. From yourself you are contributing large amount of dead skin, your own spills and accidents with food and drink, random soil and debris from a day walking in various places as you go about your business, different bacteria that you have come in contact with and this list can only get better.

You can be sure that there are dust mites and possibly fleas and their larvae if you have the aforementioned pets.

If you have a lot of moisture in your Philadelphia home you might be hosting mildew or mold.

These are just a few (a few you may say in astonishment) of the many different type and manner of materials, organism and particles that are in your carpeting as you are reading this. And they will reproduce and more dust is falling there now and more dander is leaving you and your children's and pets bodies right now.

Don't fret too much, everyone has this, save maybe one or two if they are pet free or don't have children, but any way you look at it, they are there.

While you still might be pondering all of the gross and worrisome materials and critters that are roaming around in their floor level city, don't let yourself get too bothered. It is not the fact that others also have these problems but the fact that they can not harm you unless you let it get out of hand and abstain from at least a bi yearly carpet cleaning that will sanitize and freshly clean your carpeting.

While you attempt to look below your feet and see if you can find the critters and rubble make sure to look up at least once or twice and help yourself to find a local Philadelphia carpet cleaning company that will come in and give you're a thorough carpet cleaning after you've read this, when you need one or when you decide it is time to have carpet cleaning performed in your home.
