Keep Carpets Clean in Your Facility to Avoid Health Risks

Dec 3, 2018

Carpet can be a great flooring solution for homeowners and businesses alike, but carpet that isn’t well maintained can not only look dirty, but pose a health risk. Let’s look at some of the health risks associated with unclean carpets.

Because of the way carpets are made it is all too easy for allergens such as animal or human hair and dander to become trapped in the carpet. In addition to hair and dander, other allergens such as pollen can become trapped in the carpet, especially in the spring and summer. A simple vacuuming probably isn’t enough to remove all of the allergens that are present, which means that a deep cleaning will be needed. Because many people are allergic to pet hair, dander and pollen it is important to periodically have a deep cleaning, so that your employees or patrons don’t experience allergy symptoms when visiting your facility.


In addition to allergens carpets are a perfect place for bacteria to collect and grow, especially in areas near entryways or food sources (kitchens, etc). Bacteria can pose a health risk for obvious reasons, and in the long run can end up costing you time, money, and your employees their health. A deep carpet cleaning is necessary to remove possible sources of bacteria.


Mold is another major issue in carpeted areas because carpets provide perfect conditions for mold to grow and spread. Mold can cause major health issues for both employees and patrons, from allergic reactions to respiratory problems. Mold left untreated can pose a major health risk, with some types of mold being more hazardous than others.


And finally, dirty carpets can also harbor pests like mites and bedbugs. In some cases carpet can even provide a breeding ground for fleas. To prevent infestations like this it is important to have regular deep cleanings by a professional. This is especially important in businesses that may see animals in their building.

Keeping the carpets clean in your establishment is more than an issue of appearances, it is an issue of health. Whether it is allergies or bacterial infections the carpets in your building could be making your visitors and employees sick.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision. Kudos to Kent Clean!!! Thanks Larry!"
