Health issues associated with dirty carpets

Posted on May 21st, 2013 No Comments

Carpets that are not cleaned regularly can pose health risks to unsuspecting people, potentially causing them serious harm in the long run.

For example, people who are constantly exposed to damp carpets may have an increased chance of developing asthma due to organisms that thrive in damp carpets. Additionally, dust mites that live on carpets can cause rashes and irritations.

Carpet molds can also be hazardous to a person’s health,as when ingested, they can cause respiratory allergies. People may also get athlete’s foot due to parasitic organisms that can be found in dirty carpets and may even enter through tiny cuts in the foot.

Of all the dangers dirty carpets can pose to people, the most dangerous are stomach infections or even death, which may occur if people are exposed to a carpet with too much mycotoxin or the secondary metabolites that are produced by micro fungi.

Avoid these health risks that dirty carpets pose by getting your carpet professionally cleaned. Our cleaning team at WOW Total Cleaning is prepared to ensure the cleanliness and safety of your carpet. Call 512-291-0048 today to schedule an appointment.

"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!
