As the weather gets colder and we spend more time inside you should know what your family is exposed to!
- The Norwalk virus or Norovirus (virus that causes stomach flu) can survive on an uncleaned carpet for a month or more.
- Microbiologists have identified air blown from a running vacuum cleaner as one of the five places in the home that has the highest number of germs. Other places include dish sponges, washing machines, bathroom toilets during a flush, and kitchen trash cans.
- Each year, several pounds of soil can accumulate in and under a carpet. Offshore Carpet Cleaning can remove this from your carpets in one cleaning.
- The 5-second rule is a myth: bacteria can live after 4 weeks on carpet. And, thanks to “microbial adhesion”, germs such as the following are immediately transferred to food: Salmonella typhimurium, Salmonella enteritis (bacterium that causes horrible diarrhea and vomiting) and Campylobacter (causes bloody diarrhea, periodontitis or dysentery syndrome). Offshore Carpet Cleaning can sanitize and keep you healthy and safe.
- Bed bugs can live in carpet fibers and wooden floorboards. For their size, they are extremely fast and can crawl more than 100 feet to obtain a blood meal, usually at night from people who are sleeping. Engorgement takes about 3-10 minutes yet people rarely realize they are being bitten. Offshore Carpet Cleaning can remove these bed bugs and restore a safe environment.
- A person sheds about 1.5 million skin flakes an hour, most which becomes embedded in our carpets. Offshore Carpet Cleaning has equipment to sanitize and remove the things that we don’t think about… human skin flakes YUCK!!
- Carcinogens in cigarettes may accumulate in household carpet. Because dogs and cats, as well as children and infants, spend a great deal of time on the floor, they may be at risk for developing lung cancer in households with cigarette smokers. Even if smokers don’t live in your home, others can bring this into you home without you even realizing it and Offshore Carpet Cleaning will protect you.
- Reports of families falling ill with gastrointestinal problems because of leaky vacuum cleaners that re-deposited Salmonella germs from the carpet into the household air. Another huge benefit of Offshore Carpet Cleaning visiting your home and doing what they do best!
- Stachybotrys chartarum is a house mold that grows on wet carpeting. It produces mycotoxins which causes dermatitis, mucosal irritation and immunosuppression. Mold is ugly and cant effect us in so many unsuspecting ways, Offshore Carpet Cleaning should be your first call.
