The Importance of a Clean Carpet After an Illness

Published on November 8th, 2019

With peak flu season upon us, it seems like getting sick is unavoidable. It’s easy to pick up the flu from a coworker, friend or loved one, but have you considered how your carpet in Hinsdale plays a role in you and your family’s health? Once the symptoms of the flu have subsided, it’s important to take the proper measures to clean up, your carpet included.

Why Clean Your Home?

All of the germs that caused you to become sick initially are floating around your home, just waiting to infect the next person in your family. Your floors, walls, and furniture are all breeding grounds for dirt, bacteria, dust mites and grime. Instead of waiting to become sick again at some point in the future, take matters into your own hands by deep cleaning your carpet in Hinsdale. This is an effective way to help eliminate viruses from your home. Our team at Best Buy Carpet recommends getting your carpet professionally cleaned at least once per flu season.

Don’t Forget About the Rest of Your Home, Too

Beyond just cleaning your carpet following an illness, you’ll want to make sure the rest of your home is cleaned as well. Make sure to wash your bed sheets, mattress pad and fitted sheet in addition to light switches, television remotes and any other surfaces that you consistently touch. This will help eliminate the risk of getting sick again in the future. 
If you’re in need of a new carpet in Hinsdale, our team at Best Buy Carpet, Flooring & Granite is here to help! Contact our team to get started.

"They did our granite counters in our kitchen and bathrooms, and they did a PHENOMENAL job. Lydia was our main contact and she was very responsive and very helpful.
