Why you should clean your carpet NOW: Mommy’s disgusting video proves that you should wash your floors every seven days
- An Australian mother revealed the dirty condition of the carpet in her childhood home
- She said she washes the carpet once a week because her son has asthma
- Posting a video and images to Facebook left other moms in horror
- But some wondered if her Kmart vacuum cleaner was working properly or not
A mom has emphasized the importance of washing your floors regularly after sharing a video of all the dirt and grime in her parental home carpet just seven days after the final clean.
A video and images shared with Australian cleaning group Mums Who Clean show how brown, dirty water comes out of the container of a steam carpet cleaner – which disgusted and horrified many at their own cleaning habits.
Even after the water was poured into the sink, the carpet cleaner dispenser looked dirty from dirt particles.
While it is recommended to have your carpet professionally washed at least once a year, the Queensland woman said that she uses the steam carpet cleaner every weekend or once every two weeks because her son suffers from asthma.

The mother revealed that she uses the Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro Carpet Cleaner to remove the dirt after vacuuming.
“Well, then I feel like a cave. My carpet is five years old and I vacuum once or twice a week, although I’ve been thinking about having it professionally cleaned soon, ‘said one woman.
“If I had a child with asthma, I would definitely pull [the carpet] and replaced with floorboards, “another commented, to which the woman replied that she cannot remove the carpet while renting.
While the video left some stunned and wanting to wash their carpets, others seemed skeptical and wondered if the vacuum they were using was faulty.

“I would say your vacuum cleaner doesn’t absorb enough dirt, which is why you have to wash so often,” said one woman.
The mom said they have three grate dogs that come into the house “all the time,” putting more dirt on the carpet.
She also said that to make the carpet dry quickly, she uses industrial portable metal fans.
