Carpet Cleaning

How Disgusting Is Your Carpet? The Ultimate Test


The average carpet can contain 8 times its weight in dust, dirt and other unwanted particles and contains hundreds of times more bacteria per square inch than a toilet seat. And that’s just the average! This test will help you figure out how nasty your carpet actually is – and even though you might not want to know, think about how often your kids crawl on your carpet and how this knowledge could help you prevent exposing your family to harmful chemicals, bacteria and allergens.
