A – Inside the kitchen waste bin?
B – Behind the fridge?
C – In the shower pipe?
D – Under the toilet seat?
E – None of these places?
If you answered A, B, C or D then try again! According to research led by Dr Philip Tierno Jr. (an immunologist/microbiologist at New York University and writer of bestseller The Secret Life of Germs), there is one other place that regularly contains up to 4,000 TIMES more bacteria than any of these – can YOU guess where?
The answer, which surprises many people, is on Carpets and Rugs, which are ‘botanical and zoological parks’ in the unsettling words of Dr Tierno. Here are just five of the countless organisms that like to share our carpets, none of which you want to let build up to a high level!
As you can see from our video, the dirt extracted from one area rug which had not been cleaned in 6 months, was a considerable amount!
Having your carpet professionally cleaned is recommended ideally every 6 month or at least once a year to keep your carpet from becoming a zoo! It’s important for everyone but even more so for families with young children who often spend much of their time sitting, lying or playing on the carpet.
