WHY YOU SHOULD CLEAN YOUR RUGS?

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

Research by Philip Tierno, Jr., Ph.D., New York University Langone Medical Center microbiologist, immunologist and author of The Secret Life of Germs, shows that your rug is a lot dirtier than you think. In fact, it probably has about 200,000 bacteria per square inch. That’s about 4,000 times grosser than your toilet, in case you were keeping track.

Those nasty little dust mites and allergens you always hear about aren’t the only things you have to worry about, unfortunately.

METHICILLIN-RESISTANT STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS

[/av_textblock]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

This penicillin-resistant superhero of the bacterial world can run rampant in your rugs, especially if you have any athletes in the house.
They’ll bring it home from the gym or the locker room in that nasty gym bag you just realized you never wash, take off their shoes before setting a nasty dirt-covered foot on the rug… and track in whatever they brought home after sweating through practice.

CAMPYLOBACTER

[/av_textblock]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

Generally, this one is the most dangerous during the winter months, especially as you and the little ones track in bacteria-friendly dampness on those galoshes. It causes a potentially deadly disease known as campylobacteriosis, which can be dangerous to people with a compromised immune system, like small children or the elderly. Symptoms include bloody diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain, and fever.

NOROVIRUS

[/av_textblock]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

Also known as the Norwalk virus, Norovirus causes symptoms similar to food poisoning or even the stomach flu. It can survive in your rug or in your bed for four to six weeks, and it becomes airborne as people walk or roll across it. If you live in areas with a prevalence of dust, like Texas, New Mexico or Arizona, you’re in even more danger.

FUNGI AND MOLD

[/av_textblock]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

Several fungi and molds can invade your home, some of which can cause serious allergies and even death. Aspergillus, Rhizopus, Alternaria, Geotrichum, and Cladosporium are all potential bedmates.

MICROCOCCUS

[/av_textblock]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

This one can be particularly nasty for those with compromised immune systems. It can cause some serious-looking skin infections, septic shock, meningitis (among other things) and even death.

ENTEROCOCCI

[/av_textblock]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

This one is actually a normal bacteria that exists in your intestines, but some species can cause serious infections in humans. It can cause urinary tract infections, bacteremia, bacterial endocarditis, diverticulitis and meningitis, and some strains are resistant to treatment.
