Unless you live in Westeros, summer is coming! So don’t miss a chance to get your spring cleaning done before the summer season. For some added motivation, check out this infographic on the potential health hazards that could be lurking inside your home. As Ahdoot Oriental Rugs points out – it’s never too late to clean your rug and get your castle in order!
This guide truly helps you see just how dirty our rugs and carpets are. I’ve always had this thing about carpeting and I’d much rather deal with area rugs, but those get dirty too! I love how the above infographic shows us how there are sixty-two (62) different types of bacteria, dust, and allergens living right under our toes! Yuck! We get our carpet professionally cleaned ever 3 to six months and do a weekly maintenance on them too. While you’re up and about decluttering and Spring Cleaning, definitely attack your carpeting and rugs too.
When I saw this infographic I had to share it. I honestly got grossed out just thinking of all the things living in my carpet. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have carpeting. It’s pretty darn cold right now in Westeros and while I may not live there (thank goodness!) I don’t want my floors to be that cold either! Just keep in mind that most of us have pets and kids (no they’re not the same…sometimes) and dirt, grime, and bacteria does build up. I don’t do the five-second rule in my house because I understand this, the kids. on the other hand, are a different story.
Just do yourself and your family a favor and clean your carpets too while doing your Spring Cleaning. It’ll be one less thing to worry about so that you can enjoy the rest of Spring and your Summer vacation too!
