Dirty carpets are a health hazard

Posted on May 14th, 2010 No Comments

Studies have shown that carpets can hold up to eight times their own weight in toxins, dust, dirt, and pesticides without there being any visible sign that something is wrong.

The EPA has stated that 80 percent of human exposure to pesticides happens indoors. Every time you spray an aerosol can, spray for bugs, or use any sort of airborne or liquid cleaner around a carpet, some of it will sink down and settle into the fabric. Every time you walk around in your shoes, even if they appear clean, they are leaving small amounts of dirt and dust on the carpet. Every time you take a step, microscopic toxins rise from the carpet.

Over time, this accumulated chemical waste, dirt and other undesirable material builds up to hazardous levels that can be harmful to you or your children.

The EPA has also found that chances of exposure to hazardous chemicals are 10-50 times higher in carpeted rooms than outdoors. Plush and shag carpets are even greater potential risks.

If you want to make sure your carpet is clean, you need the professional services of the Wow Total Cleaning Austin carpet cleaners. Contact us today at 512-291-0048.

"Wow Total Cleaning is great!"

Rating: 5

Wow Total Cleaning is great! My carpets look brand new again - and they were looking pretty bad! I was shocked when I came home to pristine white carpets. And they still look good. Their prices are great. They were in and out in 30 minutes. My neighbors who have alot of dogs always use them to clean their carpet. I also just realized they have a maids service and intend to give that a try too. They don't call it Wow for nothing, you too could enter your home saying WOW!
