Carpets are great in that they quickly make a home feel cosier. However, if you have carpets in your house, then you need to periodically bring in experts in carpet cleaning services in the Bay of Plenty to do a deep and thorough cleaning of your carpets – despite the fact that you regularly vacuum your carpets and try to keep them clean.

The reason for this is that carpets can hide a plethora of bugs and pests that can adversely impact your health and even do damage to your property.

Here are three common types of bugs that might be living in your carpets, which can be controlled by a professional deep cleaning of everything in your house, especially your carpets. In addition to the three bugs mentioned here, you might also have things like fleas or even lice in your carpets, which require special treatments in addition to deep cleaning.

Bed Bugs

These dreaded critters are most often found in beds and couches, but they are also commonly found infesting carpets. These pests like warm places where they can have easy access to you and your family. They are a nuisance as their bites cause welts and sometimes even allergic reactions.

A deep carpet cleaning can contribute significantly to preventing bed bugs from breeding and spreading in your home.

Dust Mites

Dust mites are everywhere and just about impossible to rid yourself of entirely. However, an overabundance of them can lead to nasty and persistent allergies. These tiny mites feed off dead skin cells, which flake off our bodies without us even realising it and then settle all over the floor, providing a buffet for dust mites in the carpet.

Regular and thorough steam cleaning of your carpets, along with good personal hygiene, can go a long way towards managing dust mites.

Carpet Beetles

These little bugs are more common than most people realise. As their name suggests, they like living in carpets. Thankfully, they don’t bite humans or pets but they do like to destroy household items made of natural fibers such as wool, jute & silk. Although they don’t bite, they can still cause pretty unpleasant allergic reactions that can leave red welts on the skin.

As with the other bugs, a good and thorough steam cleaning can help rid your home of these pests.
