Health Issues With Neglected Carpets

As your first stop for commercial carpet and floor cleaning in Utah, we’re floor experts at ProKleen. We know everything there is to know about the benefits a clean floor can offer, and perhaps more importantly, about the dangers posed by carpets badly needing cleaning after months or years of neglect.

What are some of these dangers? Let’s look at a few of the most common health issues that can be caused by dirty, contaminated carpets that aren’t receiving the proper cleaning attention.

Asthma and Allergies

Many people aren’t aware, but damp carpets are one of the main causes of asthma attacks in the home. Harmful organic compounds and microbes thrive in damp and dirty environment, and when carpets are repeatedly neglected in this area, the risk of bronchial asthma skyrockets.

In addition, allergies are commonly triggered by dirty carpets. They become a breeding ground for dust mites, microscopic crawlers that cause allergies and various irritations. Dust mites feed on dead skin cells, fungi and bacteria found on dirty carpets, and they’re equally dangerous when they’re dead as when they’re alive – they can still cause rashes and inflammation of the nasal passages.

Mycotoxins

Perhaps the most dangerous microbe found in dirty carpets, mycotoxins are generated by mold. These toxins can lead to weakening of the immune system, stomach issues and, in extreme cases, death. They’re also associated with various allergies and respiratory issues.

Fungal Infection

Parasitic organisms like dust, fungi, mold spores and others can be found on dirty carpets. Fungal infections are particularly likely to enter the body through microbes touching the feet or any open wounds – these can include athlete’s foot, ringworm and other infections.

Respiratory Issues

Mold is also common in darker, dank environments, and it can lead to major respiratory issues. Allergens and bacteria live in mold spores, which can be inhaled by humans and begin to inflame the respiratory system.

With the right commercial carpet cleaning, all these potential issues can be avoided. To find out about our services or schedule an appointment, speak to the experts at ProKleen today.
