Carpet can make a home comfortable and inviting but it is also one of the greatest sources of allergens and can hold dirt and other contaminants. AFC recommends vacuuming once a week for each full-time person and twice a week for each pet. However, vacuuming can only do so much. Over time, carpet fibers become infused with odors and spilled liquids and can become unattractive and harbor offensive odors.Of particular concern for people with allergies is that carpets can hold populations of dust mites and their waste that can seriously affect their health. According to a study published on the National Institutes of Health’s website, Steam cleaning was the most effective method they tested to reduce dust mite populations.

“An astonishing fact is that one square inch of carpet can contain up to 100,000 of these dust mites and each mite can produce up to 20 pieces of feces per day. Too many! What lots of people don’t know is that allergies related to dust mites don’t come directly from the actual mite itself. Instead, it’s the feces and body part fragments that are released by the critters that cause severe allergic symptoms.
