2. A person sheds about 1.5 million skin flakes an hour, most of which becomes embedded in our carpets.

3. Early Hoover vacuum cleaners were hard to sell because potential customers refused to believe (and were even insulted by the suggestion) that they could have that much dirt in their carpets.

4. There’s more red carpet rolled out in front of the Golden Globes ceremony (30,000 square feet) than any other awards show . That’s because the Beverly Hilton has such a huge, sprawling, U-shaped driveway.

5. Scientists believe that more than 43 million tons of dust falls over the U.S. every year. Indoor air usually contains about twice as much dust as the air outside. That’s a million microscopic particles in a cubic inch of air. About 2,000 dust mites can live happily on one ounce of carpet dust.
