How Disgusting Is Your Carpet? The Ultimate Test

And that’s just the average! This test will help you figure out how nasty your carpet actually is – and even though you might not want to know, think about how often your kids crawl on your carpet and how this knowledge could help you prevent exposing your family to harmful chemicals, bacteria, and allergens.
