If most harmful Ottawa bacteria, microbes, and organisms could custom-make their ideal home, chances are it would be designed much like your carpet. Insulated, dry, porous, and with lots of air; the nasty things that live in your Ottawa home thrive in the environment a carpet provides them. The upper surface of your carpet may appear clean, but much like the edges of a city, few of the things in your carpet live there. Underneath this, where a vacuum cannot reach, is a bustling metropolis of harmful bacteria and organisms. What follows is a few examples of a few of the citizens currently occupying this city that only a professional carpet cleaning can remove.
The definite majority of citizens in your carpet civilization, bacteria outnumber any other organism billions to one. Staphylococcus aureus, Campylobacter, Micrococcu, Enterococci; the most popular forms of bacteria living in the average Ottawa carpet, all presenting substantial health risks in great enough concentration. While regular vacuuming is recommended to keep them at bay, it will only remove those that exist close to the surface of your carpet. The only proven method to eradicate them completely is a deep carpet cleaning.
While viruses are less present in terms of their number than bacteria, they are an equally potent threat. Consider Norovirus, one of the most common viruses to be found in the average carpet in Ottawa. Manifesting symptoms equivalent to food poisoning, exposure to Norovirus from an infected carpet can lead to violent vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, overheating, and exhaustion. Small children are especially exposed to the virus, as they have less powerful immune systems and spend much more time exposed to infected carpets than adults. Particularly resistant to vacuuming, regular deep cleaning of carpets with dedicated chemicals is the only sure-fire way to deal with a norovirus infected carpet.
Feeding off the dead skill cells left in your carpet, creating nests in your dust-collecting carpet fibres to spawn their decedents, exist giants by comparison to viruses and bacteria. Dust mites, ticks, fleas, and silverfish all live inside of carpets that have not been regularly deep-cleaned; carrying disease and sickness with them wherever they go. The perfect home for these pests, infected carpets will eventually fester with the feces these bugs excrete, creating an even better ecosystem for bacteria.
While regular vacuuming is obviously recommended, it is not enough to truly deal with all the things living inside of a carpet. Only by getting a professional clean once or twice a year can you rest easy knowing that it’s only your family living in your home.
