Did you know that your office carpet is 40,000 times dirtier than your office toilet? You will never notice how dirty your office carpet is until someone spills a cup of coffee on it. So, let’s take a look at the things that you do not want to know that your carpet has.
Food. When you walk across the office eating a sandwich or snacks its crumbs hit the floor. The same food that fuels your day at work feeds bugs and bacteria in the carpet. The thing is, you are not the only one doing it. Everyone who stops off for a snack at the break room tracks food right back out into carpeted areas. Food crumbs and drink spills quickly penetrate at your carpet fibbers’ and padding where the organic material breaks down. As it decays, it stains the carpet and produces unpleasant odours.
Beatles and Dust mites. You may not be aware or notice them in glance as they are microscopic but yes, they live in your office carpet as your food wastes feed them. You can actually inhale these microscopic creatures without you knowing. When someone in the office complains that he/she might be beaten by bugs at home, he/she might not got it at home. It can be directly from your office carpet.
Dead Skin. You know all those dust particles lying around? Well, roughly 70-80% of them are made up of dead skin cells. Every year you shed more than eight pounds of dead skin and these ads up to your carpet’s microscopic bug’s buffet. Dead skin accumulation routinely contributes to workplace contaminants and becomes an unhealthy source of airborne allergens circulating through the building.
Germs and Bacteria. According to eHow.com, Norovirus, Salmonella, and Campylobacte can all collect in your carpets. Norovirus, also known as the Norwalk Virus, can cause the stomach flu and other digestive problems. It is able to survive on carpet fibres’ for four to six weeks, and can become airborne each time someone walks on the carpet.
Dust and Dirt. 100% of employees are wearing shoes inside the office; therefore, all those dirt and dust from outdoor will definitely go to your office carpet. Stains and dingy carpet can detract from a peaceful atmosphere, while allergens and dirt can contribute to respiratory problems.
Mold and Mildew. Mold and mildew are fungus that can destroy surfaces and produces a kind of musty smell that can cause health issues, especially if you have asthma, weak immune system or are prone to allergies.. The growth depends on moisture to thrive, so it’s very important to thoroughly clean up immediately after a spill of any kind.
