    Wow, that’s really interesting! And I didn’t know that the EPA recommended deep cleaning your carpet every 6 months…. oops, I need to get on that, lol!

  4. Jennifer Hedden says

    Some of these statistics are very disturbing to me. I admit I am a big believer in the 5 second rule, but maybe not so much after reading this. I can’t believe one square foot of carpet can hold about 1 pound of dirt. I definitely don’t deep clean my carpets as much as the EPA recommends. Thank you for sharing this interesting and informative post!

    I like the info graphic …To keep my carpets in my apartment clean, I make EVERYONE take off their shoes when you come into my home. I also wipe down the paws of my dog after we are outside. The carpets are cleaned once a year if you renew your lease. I wanted to try this rug cleaner but it is too heavy for me to operate with a herniated disc.

    I agree with the statement that says Americans believe a clean carpet is good for a healthy home. I can not stand dirty carpets. I like to have them cleaned every year after winter is over. Cleaning the carpets is part of my Spring cleaning, and I have used a Rug Doctor and it cleaned my carpet so well!
