Did you know that office carpets can be up to 4,000 times dirtier than a toilet bowl? Yes, you read that right. The very surface you walk on every day could be harboring an astonishing number of bacteria, including harmful germs like MERSA, campylobacter, and norovirus. These microorganisms thrive in the warm and moist environment created by dirt, dust, and spills that accumulate in the carpet fibers.
In addition to bacteria, carpets also become a haven for allergens such as pollen, pet dander, and mold spores. This can lead to respiratory problems, allergies, and even asthma attacks in susceptible individuals.
