Remember those carefree days, relaxing around the house, walking around in your stocking feet, usually a beautiful pair of white athletic socks, in order 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 field. Today’s carpet is made out of a associated with natural and man made materials, such as wool blends, various polymers, nylon and Dacron based threads. Fibers are usually twisted around a strong core, either warped or glued. These fibers are bonded to the backing by strong adhesives or woven through a backing cushion. 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 and in many the patterns, carpet is a perfect storm for gathering dirt, toxins and grime. You know 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 about on carpet every day all day. Fiber edges grab dirt, liquid residue, oils, toxins and more assorted things than most likely be worth 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 filtering organs. 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, since Teflon, is also the only 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 certified class 6 clean room-it’s going to get spotted.
Some homes insist which you leave your shoes with the entry door, and walk around the carpet barefoot or in your clothes. By initial thought that might seem like a super way to keep your carpet free from many dirt sources, however the opposite is true. Oils from feet, even through socks, will get on top of the carpet fibers and dramatically attract contaminates.
There is another important reason to keep your carpets clean- if any of the residents of your home or office are subject to respiratory distress-upper or lower- filthy carpet can greatly increase the contaminants that help cause that distress. It’s a medically researched fact than a clean carpet decreases much of the causes of Asthma or even respiratory ailments.
