carpet cleaning cambridge

As we head into spring, we can (hopefully) leave winter coughs and colds behind, but there’s an even more potentially harmful culprit waiting in the wings as the weather warms up – and it’s hidden in your carpets and fabrics. Is it time to consider carpet cleaning?

You may think your carpets are clean, but nesting in the fabric of carpets, chairs and any other soft furnishings around the typical office environment, dust mites thrive in warm conditions. As these pests multiply, dust mite allergy sufferers will experience symptoms including sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, wheezing and eczema. And allergy to dust mites is more common than you might realise, with an estimated 12 million sufferers in the UK – that’s one in five people.

Whilst thorough vacuuming cleans some of the 1,000 allergen waste particles a single dust mite produces, it’s near impossible to maintain removal of all allergens. With a gram of dust containing as many as 1,000 dust mites and 250,000 allergenic dust mite faecal pellets, you’ll need professional carpet cleaning to help to manage the problem.
