What is Lurking in your Carpets?

Category : Golden Glove Clean

What you don’t know about dirty carpets CAN hurt you. Not only because it’s gross and dirty carpets make your space look bad. It’s much more than that. It’s all about the health and safety of the people who live or work in an area polluted by dirty carpets. And whether you can see it or not, it’s happening right now.

Here’s what you need to know about how dirty carpets are not good for you and why only a professional carpet cleaning service is up for the job.

Carpets attract bad stuff

Your carpet takes the oily residue from people and pets in your home and sucks it right up. It locks in dirt and gives it a cozy place to stay.

Over time, your carpets will become discolored and you’ll start to see permanent paths where people are walking.

Grit is tearing your carpet fibers

If you got down and looked between the fibers, you’d see sandy, gritty dirt that your vacuum doesn’t have the power to reach.

Even though you can’t see it, it’s down there, shredding your carpet fibers every time they are walked on.

Germs are hiding out & making you sick

Your carpet does filter out pollutants like bacteria, pollen, chemicals, fungi, etc.

But, at a certain point, your carpet becomes full, and it can no longer effectively keep filtering. That means all those illness-causing pollutants are free to float around your home.

Dust mites leave droppings in your carpet that can aggravate asthma – even causing asthma attacks.

Dust mites combined with bacteria, pollen, etc. is a recipe for disaster if you suffer from allergies, rhinitis, or eczema. This can get serious for both asthmatics and those with environmental allergies.

The only way to get rid of these disgusting interlopers is to have the carpets in your home or your office professionally cleaned.

Carpets can hold a LOT more dirt than you think

What you probably didn’t know is that your carpets can hold 4+ times their weight in dirt, pet hair, dead skin cells, bacteria, insect feces, and more.

Throw away the 5-second rule

Bacteria can live a month or more in your carpets.

So next time you drop something, and you’re tempted to employ the “5-second rule,” just don’t.

Take off your shoes

If you’re a habitual in-the-house shoe wearer, it’s time for a new habit.

Wearing your outdoor shoes on the carpet tracks in dirt and grinds it deep down into the carpets, where your vacuum can’t go.

Beware of the Norovirus

This virus causes a variety of nasty symptoms that mimic the stomach flu or food poisoning.

It can live in your carpet for as long as six weeks. As people walk across it, it takes to the air, you and the family breathe it in.

Your toilet seat is less germy

Most people think of their toilet seats as the pinnacle of germ concentration in their homes. Your carpet can be 4,000 times dirtier than the seat of your toilet.

That should have you dialing Golden Glove!

Regular carpet cleaning is your best defense

You wash your clothes regularly. You wash your car. You wash your body on a regular basis. But you probably put your carpet low on the priority list.

Now that you have the facts, it’s clear that calling in the professionals is the best way to keep your carpets in your home or commercial space as germ-free as possible.

Golden Glove knows how to treat your carpets with the best cleaning methods and with the utmost care.

Tips To a Cleaner Carpet in the Winter Months

Category : Golden Glove Clean

Winter is the messiest season for floors. That’s why now is the time to step it up. While you may let your cleaning slide by just vacuuming your floors during the rest of the year, during this blustery, wet winter season, you’ll want to acknowledge the fact that carpeted floors are going to be extra dirty. They are going to take the brunt of the foot traffic coming in and out of your home, and will need proper care.

Winter is the Best Time to Clean your Carpets
Your carpets might not have been thoroughly cleaned after the warmer months, and now that pollen, dust and other indoor particles have built up from the last season, and the heat is on– who knows what kind of dirty build up is in those carpets. All these reasons are why winter is a good time to consider having your carpets cleaned. A good cleaning will eliminate the indoor contaminants, reduce the staining, and tackle those high traffic areas.

With clean carpets everyone can breathe easier.

Winter Weather Can Ruin your Carpets

Now let’s talk about soiled and stained carpets, and why it’s so important to stay on top of this type of carpet dirt. If you address these types of carpet messes on a regular and timely basis, your carpets will look newer longer as well as give a friendly, clean appearance. Fewer carpet replacements sounds great. Putting off cleaning until warmer months can cause stains and dirt from the winter months to set, in turn causing a worn appearance as well as creating a situation where stains can become permanent. Another reason to clean your carpets during the winter months is to remove the unwanted dirt that weighs down and grinds down on these fibers. The dirt will literally cut and snag carpeting and again, showing a worn tired looking carpet.

Avoid the Mess
Here are just a couple of ways to avoid carpet messes from becoming a serious problem:

Provide Runners and Rugs in high traffic areas. These can be removed and replaced for quicker cleaning in between full carpet shampoos.

A quick clean up from a topical product might not get rid of the spot entirely, but it can help make it less noticeable and easier for your carpet cleaning team to remove it during the shampooing.
