Scary Things Hiding In Your Carpet

Do you know what’s really hiding in your carpet? Because of all the traffic it encounters daily, carpet attracts and hides some of the worst allergens, bacteria, germs, organisms and other hazardous particles.

The fact of the matter is that while dust and visible debris may be easy to get rid of, there are some things that you would never expect to be in your carpet which may compromise your family’s health.

Here Are A Few Scary Things Hiding In Your Carpet

Dust MitesDust Mites

Dust mites are microscopic creatures that themselves are harmless. The problem stems from the fact that they produce large quantities of microscopic waste. This waste is harmful because it can cause a range of respiratory problems.



Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there! Pathogens such as salmonella, E. coli, and staphylococcus can hide in carpet fibers and cause illness. Mold or mildew can also thrive in a warm, wet environment. Keeping carpet dry will help prevent the formation of mold or mildew.


Bacteria is another nasty thing hiding in your carpet and home. Truth is there are both good and bad forms of bacteria. We have "good" bacteria that naturally lives in our stomach that helps us to breakdown food into enzymes. However, there is also bad bacteria that can take many forms such as the common cold or flu to stomach bugs. Guess what kills sterilize and kill bad bacteria? You guessed it, high heat.
