Keeping Carpets Clean
The American Lung Association recently updated its information on carpeting and air quality. Carpets are notorious for trapping dust, allergens, and toxins in their fibers. On the one hand, this is beneficial because those harmful elements can be trapped in the pile and out of the air. But on the other hand, those pollutants can be released into the air at any time from regular traffic and use. The same things are true for all fabric and upholstery, including furniture, curtains, pillows, and mattresses.
Carpets and fabrics also house billions of bacteria and other organic matter like dirt, food, skin, and hair. Regular vacuuming can only address a portion of these issues. Better cleaning, stain removal, and odor elimination can be accomplished with Earthworm® Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner, which uses naturally-occurring enzymes to break down organic materials.
For deeper cleaning and stronger stain removal, consider using a carpet shampoo or extractor machine. Earthworm® offers a Deep Clean Carpet & Rug Shampoo Extractor Concentrate that utilizes the same enzymes to penetrate carpet fibers, break down embedded pet waste, dirt, and other organic materials, and also eliminate odors.
