Why is carpet cleaning important especially if there are young children in the home? There are some very interesting facts out there on  “how clean your carpet is?” and “how much bacteria is actually in your carpet?”

Today we’ve been reading an article from Netmums about dirtier items than your toilet seat in your home – including your child’s car seat, your carpet and even your tablet. Just to make you aware “carpets” is point number 3…so did you know that almost 200,000 bacteria live in each square inch of carpet (that’s 700 times more than on your toilet seat). 😷👎

It’s so scary as our children and newborn babies are lying, rolling around and playing on our carpets every minute and we honestly don’t consider how tidy they are or even think about it!
