You might be diligent1 about running the vacuum over your carpet whenever it starts to look a bit scruffy2, but shocking research has revealed that the average bedroom floor is ten times dirtier than a toilet seat.
 
地毯看起来有点脏的时候,你可能会很勤劳地用吸尘器清理,但是一项令人震惊的研究表明,一般来说,卧室地板比马桶座圈要脏十倍。
 
The data, compiled by sofa and carpet specialist ScS, found carpets in the bedroom also harbor more than double the bacteria found in a living room, and ten times that of a gym floor.
 
Their findings also showed that almost half of Brits have admitted to never cleaning their carpets, making them an ideal breeding ground for colonies of disease-causing microbes.
 
Office floors were found to be the cleanest in the experiment - in which carpets and household appliances were swabbed to reveal levels of aerobic3 bacteria, yeast4 and mould.
Bedroom carpets were by far the dirtiest, with a combined bacteria and yeast level of 140 CFU per cm2 (colony forming units per cm2) uncovered within them, as well as heavy mould.
 
The cleanest surface swabbed was an office carpet, which contained less bacteria than a gym floor, toilet seat or living room carpet, possibly due to more regular professional cleaning.
