Do You Know How Much Dirt Could Be Hiding in Your Rugs?

When you think about germs infiltrating your home, you probably think of the most heavily used and touched surfaces, such as countertops, sinks, and toilets. Believe it or not, there is a place in your home that is holding even more germs than your toilet seat: Your carpet. Fortunately, the professionals at Ayoub Carpet Service can help you get your carpet and rugs clean again with our expert services. In this article, we’ll explore the hidden germs in your rugs and how we can help you eliminate them.

Carpet and Rug Cleaning

How Much Dirt Is Hiding in Your Rugs?

In a 2021 study published by Home Advisor, it was determined that the average carpet has almost six times the amount of germs than a toilet seat. Specifically, the analysis determined that the carpet had over 91,000 colony-forming units of germs per gram of dust, consisting of 95% bacteria. If your carpet or rug can trap bacteria-ridden dust, dirt from the outside, pet dander, and other particles with regular cleaning, imagine how dirty it would be without regular cleaning! It is imperative to vacuum your floors three times each week with a HEPA filter and have them professionally cleaned each year.

In-Plant Rug Cleaning Service

The professionals at Ayoub have spent over 70 years perfecting our process for the best and most efficient way to clean your rugs. We always start with a pre-inspection to determine your particular rug’s best course of action. After the pre-inspection, you will receive a detailed report outlining the state of your rug. Whatever cleaning process we determine to be the best approach for your rug, you can rest assured that it will be thorough and effective. 

In-Home Carpet Cleaning Service

Our in-home carpet cleaning process differs from others in the industry. We use hot water extraction to provide you with a deeper clean and dryer finish to prevent the reappearance of stains. When trained professionals use this method, it is the most effective way to clean wall-to-wall carpet. We will visually inspect the cleaning area, pre-spot any stains or spills, and use environmentally safe conditioning agents to release the soil.
