If you have been thinking about renewing your carpet, you might want to think twice and go with hardwood flooring. Here are some pretty interesting facts about carpet you are probably unaware of:

  • The virus that causes the stomach flu (Norwalk virus) can thrive for up to a month in uncleaned carpet.

  • The vacuum that you “clean” your carpet with has the highest number of germs in your home.

  • Bed bugs are known to make a nice home in carpet fibers.

  • A single human sheds over 1.5 million dead skin flakes every hour, imagine how many are saturating your carpet.

  • The chemical Naphthalene, that is found in many carpet cleaners, can cause terrible side effects such as urinary irritation, vomiting, headaches and nausea.

  • Studies have proven that mice have actually dropped dead from breathing in the toxic fumes that carpets give off.

  • Carpets should be professionally cleaned every year, more often if you have children and pets. This can get expensive quickly.

  • Carpets are definitely a place of refuge for fleas.
