Carpet Cleaning

Your Health May Depend On It

Global Maintenance offers carpet shampooing and extraction, which provides the customer with a deep and thorough cleaning.  We use products that are safe for the environment, children and pets, but still strong enough to work on commercial carpeting.  It is important to have your carpeting cleaned on a regular schedule to extend not only the life of your carpeting but also to rid your carpeting of dust, dirt and other pollutants that may settle deep in the carpet fibers. Having a clean carpet in your home or office makes it a healthier environment and keeps it smelling clean.

Professional carpet cleaners are a great choice for your carpeting. Their cleaning equipment has more extraction power than the rental units available to individuals, and the carpet should dry more quickly. True professionals also understand the equipment, know the proper cleaning agents for the situation at hand, and recognize the differences in fibers and carpet construction.

5 Nasty Germs Lurking in Your Carpet

Staphylococcus

 

This penicillin-resistant superhero of the bacterial world can run rampant in your carpet, especially if you have any athletes in the house or office. They’ll bring it home or into the office from the gym or the locker room.

Campylobacter

 

Generally, this one is the most dangerous during the winter months. It causes a potentially deadly disease known as campylobacteriosis, with symptoms such as bloody diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain and fever.

Norovirus

 

Also known as the Norwalk virus, Norovirus causes symptoms similar to food poisoning or even the stomach flu. It can survive in your carpet for four to six weeks, and it becomes airborne as people walk or roll across it.

Fungi and mold

 

Several fungi and molds can invade your home and office, some of which can cause serious allergies and even death. Aspergillus, Rhizopus, Alternaria, Geotrichum and Cladosporium are all potential room-mates/pod-mates.

Micrococcus

 

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.
