Yes, it is often easy to tell when it’s time to clean the carpet in your family room, hallway or the main entrance to your house in Reno Nevada. You begin to see soil in the traffic areas, or there are those inevitable spots and spills. Despite your best efforts at vacuuming the carpet
still looks soiled and you clearly know it needs to be cleaned. But what about the carpet in your bedrooms? Tracked in soils or spills aren’t usually a major problem in bedrooms. This may lead you to think that bedroom carpets don’t need cleaning as often as the
rest of the house.
Think again. Your Bedroom is Dirtier than you Realize Your bedroom is the place where you sleep, dress and groom. The natural body oils, perspiration, dander, hair, particles from coughing and sneezing, residue from recently showering and the moisture it generates
make the bedroom among the most heavily soiled carpets in your home, even if they still look good. Of course, don’t forget all of the sprays, lotions and potions we use when grooming. These can leave residue behind that is unhealthy itself but which also attracts
dirt and germs. It’s no surprise that much of this “stuff” ends up in your carpet. And even though you can’t see these soils, they are there. Need proof?
Walk into your bedroom, master closet or dressing area and take a whiff. Chances are, you will notice a natural musky odor that is unique to that room. The Surprises Lurking in Your Private Spaces Discussing the most personal space in your home may make you
feel a bit uncomfortable, but the fact is that you spend a huge portion of your day in that room. It should be the cleanest room in the house, if you want to be healthy. Let’s consider two major bedroom problems: your carpet and your mattress. Much of the body oil,
sweat and dander you lose every day remains in your carpet and mattress. During the natural processes of oxidation and decay, these organic materials break down and release gases that are the source of odors. Your bed sheets help protect your mattress, but
some of the tiny dead skin cells and body oils, along with 8-12 ounces of perspiration adults lose each night, do make it through and end up in your mattress.
Another concern is dust mites. The highest population of dust mites in any house is in the bedroom. This is because the 3 things that a dust mite needs to survive are found there in abundance: food, moisture and warmth. Dust mites eat dead skin, they get all the
moisture they need from bedroom humidity and perspiration, and they love the warmth your body leaves in the bed. All of this makes your bedroom the perfect breeding ground to raise happy, healthy dust mites.
