• If sickness has been through your home or workplace, you will have stuck to a basic cleaning regime. There is another element to add to your arsenal in the fight against spreading germs.

    Carpet and rugs are very effective air filters for your environment, trapping dirt and germs, preventing them from recirculating into the air and spreading. In fact studies have shown that homes with carpet are more healthy than just having hard floors. However the carpets themselves need to be cared for as well.

    Regular vacuuming is helpful and is suggested 1 – 2 times a week depending on your environment. This helps to get rid of the surface germs, but a professional carpet clean is needed for a deep down clean that will not only clean, but sanitise the carpet.

    So after a bout of sickness in your home, think about getting the carpets and rugs cleaned to prevent sickness spreading further.
