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:

Frozen Delights

Today is Frozen Food Day which means it is time to celebrate all of the delicious foods and snacks you have stored in your freezer. Who invented frozen food you might ask? Well, frozen food has always been around in climates that were cold enough for food to freeze. In 1924, Clarence Birdseye is credited with inventing the quick freezing method, which produces the type of frozen foods that we know today.

To help ensure that your frozen delights are of the best quality, Filters Fast has a few suggestions:
