Health issues associated with dirty carpets

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.
