The importance of cleaning your office carpets.

Did you know that your carpets in your workplace could be harbouring an entire ecosystem of germs?

Yes, that plush, cosy surface beneath your feet may not be as clean as it looks and when using your an air conditioning unit, the air your staff and customers are breathing in has been circulating and in contact with all the germs and bacteria.

Let us take a closer look at of the germs that could be living in your carpet and why steam cleaning is essential in keeping them at bay.

  1. Bacteria.
    These microscopic organisms can thrive in your carpet, especially in areas where spills, food crumbs, or pet accidents have occurred. Common types of bacteria found in carpets include Salmonella, E. coli, and Staphylococcus, which can cause food poisoning, skin infections, and other health issues.
  2. Dust Mites.
    Dust mites are tiny, spider-like creatures that feed on dead skin cells and thrive in warm, humid environments like carpets. Their body fragments can trigger allergic reactions and respiratory issues, such as asthma and rhinitis, in susceptible individuals.
  3. Mould and Mildew.
    If your carpet has been exposed to moisture or water damage, it can become a breeding ground for mould and mildew. These fungi can release spores into the air, which can cause respiratory issues and allergic reactions, especially in people with weakened immune systems.
  4. Viruses.
    In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial to be aware that viruses can survive on surfaces, including carpets. Respiratory viruses like the flu and cold viruses can linger on your carpet and potentially spread to other surfaces, increasing the risk of infection.

So, why is steam cleaning essential in tackling these germs? Steam cleaning uses high-temperature water vapor to penetrate deep into the carpet fibres, effectively killing and removing germs, bacteria, dust mites, mould, and other contaminants. The heat from the steam also helps to break down dirt and stains, leaving your carpet refreshed and revitalized.

Regular steam cleaning, at least once or twice a year, is recommended to keep your carpets germ-free and maintain a healthy indoor environment. However, more frequent cleaning may be necessary for high-traffic areas or households with pets, children, or individuals with allergies or respiratory issues.
