Dust Mites In The Carpet

Dust Mites

It is never easy to keep your carpets dust, germ, and stain-free, especially if you have kids or pets.

The bottoms of your shoes, slippers and other footwear are embedded with bits of dirt, grime, bubblegum, dog poop and whatever else. Even your bare feet may be home to bacteria that you spread around unknowingly.


The average human sheds around 1.5 million skin flakes an hour. Most of these fall down and become embedded into our carpets, which dust mites and other bugs then feast upon. Dust mites are responsible for allergies such as asthma.
Regular vacuuming helps keep on top of them but you need to do more than just getting rid of the surface dust and dirt from your carpet. You have to really give it a thorough cleaning.


Bacteria can still survive after four weeks on carpet. Microbial adhesion allows germs to be transferred to food and other things that are dropped on to bacteria-infested surfaces.

The Good News

The good news is that when your carpet is cleaned regularly your carpets help in controlling the amount of dust and allergens in the air we breathe by acting as a kind of trap for these unwanted particles. These stay in the carpet until it is vacuumed or cleaned. Walking on carpeted surfaces results in lower disturbance of airborne particles, which improves the overall quality of the air in the room.
