It’s time for some carpet cleaning trivia in Burlington, IA! Although carpets often go overlooked and are forgotten underfoot, it’s important to understand how to properly care for carpets and keep them clean.

That’s where today’s trivia comes in! Here are a few valuable carpet-cleaning facts to encourage you to think twice about keeping your home’s carpets clean:

Bacteria can live in a carpet for four weeks. That’s why it’s so important to keep carpets clean and to bring in a professional carpet cleaner every 12 to 18 months! There are other nasty things that also make their homes in our home’s carpets such as the Norovirus and dust mites.

The oldest recorded carpet is over 2,000 years old. The Pazyryk carpet, a gem from southern Siberia, must have been kept in excellent condition and cleaned regularly in order to have such an impressive lifespan!

Each person sheds approximately 1.5 million skin flakes each hour. Most of these flakes fall into our carpets and mix with the 43 million tons of dust that fall over the United States each year. That’s a lot of dust in your carpets every day!

 The word “carpet” comes from the Latin word “to pluck.” This is because, back in the day, carpets were specifically made from plucked fabric. “Carpet” also shares a Latin root with the term “carpe diem,” which means to seize (or pluck) the day!

Now that you know exactly what’s going on in your carpets, it’s time to contact a professional cleaner in the Burlington, IA, area! Fortunately, the folks at ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration Services are here to help keep your carpets clean and clear of nasty bacteria and dust mites.
