Carpet fulfills the needs of both comfort and style in the home. The carpet you choose matters, and it’s also important to maintain it with professional carpet cleaning in Santa Clarita

Even if carpets don’t appear to be noticeably dirty, you might be surprised at the things that could be lurking within. Below are a few examples of some common contaminants we see in the average household’s carpets. 

What Your Carpet Could Be Hiding 


Even though you can’t see them, nasty germs could be lurking in your carpet. In fact, it’s common for E Coli, Salmonella, and Staph to be found in household carpets. 

Dirt And Dust

Dust quickly accumulates throughout the home—including in carpets. So does dirt that settles or is tracked in. Carpets soak up these particles like a sponge. 

Dander, Hair, And Dead Skin 

Hair, dander, and skin from humans and pets also make their home in carpets. 


Ticks, fleas, and dust mites also get comfortable in carpet fibers. 


Allergens like pet hair and pollen are also often found trapped in carpets.


Carpets also absorb whatever odors are floating around in the air. And when pet urine dries, potent odor crystals remain trapped deep in carpet and will continue releasing odors in the home until professionally removed. 

Mold And Mildew 

When carpets take on moisture or humidity or when too much moisture is used in the carpet cleaning process, it can create a breeding ground for mold and mildew.
