Considering the maintenance involve, we at DM Carpet Cleaning would like to talk about the repercussions involved when the carpets are neglected.
Carpet Healthy Risks & Hazards
Insect Infestation in Carpet: Insects in the carpet, such as fleas, ticks, ants, dust mites, and so on can trigger allergies and asthma in addition to other health concerns. Without regular cleaning the infestation of insects will grow because the carpets provide an eco-system for a plethora of insects and micro-organisms where they reproduce, die, and eat the resources in the carpets.
Carpet Mold Growth: Mold spores and mildew among other gross organisms are often present on carpets from time to time. Under the ideal conditions, these organisms can encourage growth and spread. Not only is seeing mold and mildew disgusting, but over exposure will cause health concerns and natural decay is expedited on the materials it grows on including the carpets, padding, subfloor, baseboards, and even the walls. In addition to controlling humidity levels and moisture exposure, regular vacuuming and professional deep cleaning once or twice a year can significantly reduce the odds of such events.

The many different substances that get trapped in the carpet, in addition to any agents that are spilled and especially pet accident will make the carpets pungent. More often than not, homeowners get use to the slow evolving odors that they may even go unnoticed but when guests arrive, the stench assaults them immediately.
