Thousands of Bugs Live in Your Office Carpet


As we head into spring, we may have left winter coughs and colds behind, but there’s an even more potentially harmful culprit waiting in the wings as the weather warms up – and it’s hidden in your carpets and fabrics.

Nesting in the fabric of carpets, chairs and any other soft furnishings around the typical office environment, dust mites thrive in warm conditions. As these pests multiply, dust mite allergy sufferers will experience symptoms including sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, wheezing and eczema. And allergy to dust mites is more common than you might realise, with an estimated 12 million sufferers in the UK – that’s one in five people.

Whilst thorough vacuuming cleans some of the 1,000 allergen waste particles a single dust mite produces, it’s near impossible to maintain removal of all allergens. With a gram of dust containing as many as 1,000 dust mites and 250,000 allergenic dust mite faecal pellets, you’ll need professional carpet cleaning to help to manage the problem.

Monthind Clean LLP, East Anglia’s leading independent cleaning contractor, has over 45 years’ experience in the industry and a well-established reputation for delivering a high standard of cleaning services to both those in the private and public sector. Experts in deep cleaning, the company pride themselves on their team of experienced commercial cleaners as well as their state of the art equipment to ensure only the highest quality clean every time.

Monthind Partner, Simon Biggs explains, “A deep clean isn’t just about aesthetics. There were 64 million sick days due to allergies in the UK last year, costing businesses an estimated £6 billion. Reducing allergens in the workplace is a shrewd investment in employee welfare and productivity. Domestic vacuum and carpet cleaners simply clean the surface, whereas the Monthind’s powerful commercial equipment is designed to deep clean and ensures dust, dirt and mites are eliminated. Spring is a great time to book a deep clean, with the added benefit of a sparkling clean workplace.”


Monthind Clean serve a variety of clients across East and South East Anglia, including Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. For more information regarding a deep clean for your office space, call 01206 215300 or visit https://www.monthindclean.co.uk
