These germs can cause diseases like diarrhea, vomiting and even typhoid. If you were looking for a good reason to have your carpet regularly cleaned, this is probably it.

Well, yes and no. It does get rid of a lot of dust on the surface of a carpet, but fails to destroy all the germs that live in it.

Moreover, depending upon the fabric of the carpet, excessive vacuuming may lead to wear and tear. While we do recommend regularly vacuum cleaning your carpet, we also think that getting it properly cleaned by a professional is a must. This is especially true if you have infants, toddlers or pets in the house because they are prone to playing on the carpet. Additionally, steam cleaning has been shown to increase the lifespan of your carpet.
