How Clean Is Your Carpet? (Infographic)
Your carpet might look clean, but is it really? What you can see on the surface doesn’t always tell the full story…
Dirtier Than Your Toilet Seat! Did you know that your carpet could contain up to 4 times its weight (or maybe more) in dirt, dust, mites, dead skin cells, pet hair, urine, bacteria, mould, and other nasties?!

You might also be surprised to learn that the air blowing out of the back of your vacuum cleaner could be extremely dirty (in fact: a study showed it could be one of the 5 dirtiest places in your home). So before you next switch on your vacuum cleaner, make sure to check & clean the filter, otherwise you could be pumping dust, dirt and pollen back into your room, & back onto the carpets you just cleaned! When you replace your vacuum, look for one with a hospital-grade HEPA filter to ensure fine dust and dirt particles are fully removed.
Although no-one wants to think about a mountain of dirt, dust, mites and other nasties buried in their carpet, it is important to make sure your carpets are kept clean; especially if you have kids or someone in your family has allergies. House dust is the number one cause of allergies, and just 0.000001g of an allergen is enough to trigger a reaction.
The Carpet Institute of Australia recommends having your carpets professionally cleaned every 12-18 months; however, they will need doing more often (every 6 – 12 months) if you have kids, pets or allergies. If you are one of the 4 in 10 people who has never had your carpet professionally cleaned, or it’s been a year or more since the last visit, it might be time to find a qualified, reliable and professional carpet cleaner to make sure your carpets are completely clean, free of nasties, and not comprising your family’s health.
