What’s Hiding In Your Carpet?

When it comes to healthy living, many of us feel we have everything checked. From the food we eat, to the water we drink, many of us are more concerned about a healthy lifestyle than ever before. There is something that many of us miss however. According to a recent article by Market Watch, there are hidden health hazards right underneath your feet. They are in your carpets and rugs and could be negatively impacting your overall health. If you were to tell someone that their carpet contains more bacteria per square inch than their toilet, they probably wouldn’t believe you. Unfortunately however, it is true. Within many carpets you may find dirt, dust mites, molds and other potentially harmful pollutants.

Many of us vacuum our carpets regularly to clean them up and to prevent dirt from accumulating. But how often do we think about changing the filter within our vacuum cleaner? How often do we pay attention to the vacuum bags and accessories that we are using? Choosing the right accessories can make a huge difference in your overall health. Below are a few products to help ensure that your carpet and rugs are healthy and won’t pose any hidden dangers:

The Genuine Hoover Type Y Vacuum Bags Allergen 3-Pack are replacement vacuum cleaner bags for all Hoover WindTunnel vacuum cleaner models. These replacement bags feature allergen filtration for a clean home environment and are especially useful for those who suffer from allergies and asthma. With these Hoover replacement bags you will be able to trap 100% of dust mites and their eggs, as well as airborne particles such as pet dander, spores and other allergens.

Many of us do not pay close attention the filter that is in your vacuum cleaner. It is vital to the way your vacuum performs and can eliminate several contaminants found inside many carpets. This is why the Hoover WindTunnel HEPA Vacuum Filter is essential. It uses a Hoover HEPA filter to capture 99.97% of dust, pollen and other common household allergens.

The Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Vacuum Belt is a genuine Hoover vacuum cleaner belt for your WindTunnel T-Series Vacuum Cleaner. This Hoover WindTunnel Vacuum Belt contains 2 vacuum belts and it fits your WindTunnel Upright Cleaner. Your vacuum belt should be replaced every 6 months to ensure optimum performance.Other great accessories can be found here.

With this being allergy season, many never think that the source of their allergies could very well be their own carpet. However, take comfort in the fact that there is something we can do about it. Having your carpet cleaned and regularly vacuuming your carpet can prevent many of these contaminants from showing up.
