Remember those carefree days, relaxing around the house, walking around in your stocking feet, usually a couple white athletic socks, only to have your spouse or mom point out how dirty your socks were and why you insist in walking outside in the clean socks she washed and cleaned for buyers? You look at the socks, and point out that you’ve been in whole time- then the silent looks to each other, each thinking “walking on the carpet did this?” Yup!
Carpet, by its very nature, is a natural dust and dirt magnetic. Today’s carpet is made out of a connected with natural and man made materials, such as wool blends, various polymers, nylon and Dacron based clothes. Fibers are usually twisted around a strong core, either warped or bonded. These fibers are bonded to the backing by strong adhesives or woven through a backing sleeping pad. Pile fibers might be cut or looped, of varying lengths, such as kitchen, short pile, long pile or the memory indulging shag.
Because of the construction materials, manufacturing processes or simply the patterns, carpet is a perfect storm for gathering dirt, toxins and grime. Everybody knows what happens to backside soles of a brand new pair of shoes after walking outside the first time- the simple coating of everyday yuck is placed on carpet every day all day. Fiber edges grab dirt, liquid residue, oils, toxins and more assorted things than may thinking about. HVAC systems, residential and commercial, also blow various pollens, insect detritus, flaked skin and plain old dirt all around the carpet surface, no matter how complicated the liver. All carpet fibers are subject to static electricity and some fibers are treated to be somewhat static resistant; but any static will attract contaminants. Stain treatment, such as Teflon, is also referred to as addition to carpet fibers- but all this does is make cleanup of liquids and stain inducing materials easier- dirt still gets into treated carpet fibers. So unless your carpet is in a skilled class 6 clean room-it’s going to get spotted.
Some homes insist that you leave your shoes with the entry door, and walk around the carpet barefoot or in your socks. By initial thought that might seem like a fantastic way to keep your carpet free of many dirt sources, but the opposite is true. Oils from feet, even through socks, will get on the carpet fibers and dramatically attract contaminates.
There is another important reason to keep your carpets clean- if any of the residents of your office or home are subject to respiratory distress-upper or lower- filthy carpet can greatly increase the amount of contaminants that help cause that distress. It’s a medically researched fact that the clean carpet decreases various causes of Asthma or even respiratory ailments.
