Mould and Bacteria

Mould and Bacteria

Unfortunately, vacuums can’t get to the bacteria that live right at the bottom of your carpet. Delicate carpet fibres serve as the perfect breeding ground for bacteria which can multiply and form colonies. Absorbent carpet fibres can offer the right conditions for mould to grow which can trigger asthmatic responses.

Microscopic Bugs

Microscopic Bugs

Teeny tiny bugs like dust mites, ticks and fleas. Bugs feed on products that contain animal protein including wool, silk, leathers, and fur. Synthetic carpets are also their target. Dust mites cause irritation through their moulted skin and waste and are one of the main causes of allergies.

Skin and Fur

Skin and Fur

Other common culprits lurking deep within our carpets are pet hair and skin flakes. Did you know an average person sheds 1.5 million skin flakes per day? Coupled with the fact that our furry friends tend to shed all year round, this provides extra fodder for dust mites.

Food Residue and Drinks

Food Residue and Drinks

Food and drinks are one of the most common substances we spill onto our carpets. Even if you try your best to remove any moisture or crumbs, tiny food particles can make their way into the delicate fibres of your carpet where they serve as a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and other bugs.
