Why should carpets and rugs be cleaned regularly with pets?
We all love our pets, but do we know what they bring into our homes?
Saliva: A dog has at Least 20 species of bacteria in its mouth. All of these bacteria are left behind when your pet slobbers on your carpets or upholstery.
Pet waste: There are 20 million fecal coliform bacteria in a single gram of pet waste – urine or feces! These bacteria remain on your carpet even after you clean up the waste.
Dander: An estimated 30 million Americans are allergic to animals with pet dander being the main cause! Simply vacuuming may not get rid of all of the allergens.
Dirt: Studies show that dirt carries many different forms of bacteria and a square foot of carpet can harbor up to 1 pound of dirt! Our cleaning system will deep clean your carpets, removing the places bacteria can hide.
The EPA recommends that homes with pets have their carpets and rugs professionally cleaned every 3 to 6 months for the most effective cleaning and removal of pet hair, odors, dander, and dirt or soil.
