Vacuuming vs Carpet Cleaning


If you put a piece of your carpet under a microscope, you may be shocked at what you see. One square meter or carpet can be home to thousands of different types of organisms, including insects.

Some of the things that may be living in your carpet without even realising include:

  • Dust mites
  • Fungi
  • Mould
  • Fleas (including larvae and eggs)
  • Pollen and spores

The main difference between simply vacuuming your carpet as opposed to having your carpet professionaly cleaned, is that vaccumming simple sucks out the dirt and grit from top of the carpet weave, thus leaving most of the nasties mentioned above behind.

Having your carpet professionally cleaned, particularly by the steam extraction method as used by Wallaby Pest Control and Carpet Cleaning not only removes dirt from the top layer of the carpet but actually extracts all bacteria, mould and organisms from the base of carpet. Through using the steam extraction your carpet is being cleaned thoroughly but not damaged through the use of harmful chemicals.
