5 Reasons to Get Your Carpet Cleaned ASAP!
The Norovirus: (a virus that causes the stomach flu) is rampant right now across the U.S and can survive on an uncleaned carpet for a month or more!
The five-second rule is a myth: Bacteria can live over four weeks on carpet fibers. And, thanks to “microbial adhesion,” germs such as the following are immediately transferred to food: Salmonella typhimurium, Campylobacter, and Salmonella enteritis – which is a nasty bacterium that causes horrible diarrhea and vomiting.
Bed bugs: These nasty little monsters can live in carpet fibers and wooden floorboards. For their size, they are extremely fast and can crawl more than 100 feet to obtain a blood meal, usually at night from people who are sleeping.
Cancer: The toxic substances in cigarette smoke can become embedded in carpet fibers, placing both children and pets at risk for cancer and other smoking related illness.
Build up: Each year, several pounds of soil can accumulate in and under a carpet.
It’s Not Too Late!
We at Ernesto’s Carpet Cleaning know that improper carpet maintenance can be a hazard to your families health. Many people have never had professional carpet cleaning done because they never thought carpeting could actually be a danger to their family. However, EPA studies show that deep carpet cleaning should take place 1x per year with a recommend an intermittent cleaning every six month for offices and homes.

A Beautiful Carpet Appearance
When we clean Carpets, the first thing our L.A Area customers notice is a surprising improvement in carpet appearance. The use of our Crystalizing and low moisture encapsulation prevents wicking and other problems that can occur from overwetting with traditional hot water extraction. Interim carpet cleaning will remove sticky residues that trap soil in carpet fibers, extending carpet life. For our once a year deeper cleaning service, we utilize a combination of Shampoo, Steam and Low Moisture Encapsulation. Our cleaning technicians are trained to use as little water as necessary so that the carpets will dry faster and with less risk of reoccurring stains.
