We know that removing bacteria 100% is simply next to impossible, however curbing bacteria and keeping it at a manageable level, is within our control.
Many people do not consider the means by which dirt and germs are tracked into the home and how such germs become viral and airborne from the ground up. Carpeting and rug fibers are perfect for mold spores and allergens to accumulate, and when stepped on, the particles break apart into the air and into your body.
Common pathogenic diseases such as Salmonella can be brought into your carpet and rug fibers from your shoes, embedding themselves and regenerating in their cozy environment.

“My Cleaner experts say that most people’s carpets and rugs contain a whopping 100,000 bacteria particles per square inch.”
