Myths on Carpet Cleaning Debunked
Did you know that there are several myths to carpet cleaning? Without regular deep cleaning and surface cleaning, your carpets are more susceptible to germs even than a toilet seat!

The myth you often hear is that your carpet is dirtier than a toilet seat – correction; typical carpet roughly contains 200,000 bacteria per square inch! Meaning carpets are at least 4,000 times more than a toilet seat! Another myth about carpet is that it can hide a pound of dirt per yard and still look clean. The scary truth is how much bacteria already hides in your carpet about to 200,000 bacteria per square inch and still look clean!
