There are several illnesses one can contract from spending a lot of time indoors. Did you know that the average person spends up to 90% of their time indoors? Did you know that 80% of the exposure we get from pesticides comes from our own home? The EPA recommends that we limit the use of chemical pesticides in our home to reduce exposure. If you’ve had a runny nose, dry, red, watery eyes, sneezing more often, or are itchier than you usually are, there is a chance that indoor pollution, or sick house syndrome may be the culprit to your ailments.
What Lives in Your Carpet? E Coli, Germs, Bacteria & More
Our carpets hold 4-8 times their weight in dust, bacteria, allergens, mites, pesticides, mold, mildew, fungi and organic matter. Every time we come in from outside we bring pollutants with us. While our vacuums may be one of the most utilized cleaning tools we use, even the most expensive ones will only remove about 15% of the dust in our carpets. Steam cleaning is the only effective way to remove these toxins and allergens. Our children and pets spend the most time on the carpets which makes them most susceptible to exposure of these elements that are making us ill. Carpets are known to harbor an array of pathogens including but not limited to: Campylobacter, Norovirus, Kawasaki Syndrome, and Salmonella. DM Carpet Cleaning can remove 99% of these harmful viruses, pathogens, and living organisms that may be lingering where we live with a simple hot water steam cleaning. Our carpets aren’t the only source of what could possibly be making you sick. Our furniture should be steam cleaned regularly as well! Our furniture acts like a magnet to dust mites, pet dander, dead skin, and if anyone is eating or drinking on the furniture, food and liquids are likely to be spilled or dropped. When you get your carpets done, have your mattresses and couches steam cleaned as well.
Choose Natural, Green, Non Toxic Eco Friendly Cleaning Products
Cleaning products are another source of toxins that are introduced into our homes daily. We all use cleaning products to clean our homes. The fumes from the chemicals in cleaning products can lead to headaches, eye irritation and they serve as a respiratory irritant as well. Look for green cleaning products to limit harmful, unneeded chemical exposure. Green cleaning products are just as effective in killing viruses and bacteria minus the risk! Our bathrooms and kitchens harbor the most bacteria found in our homes. It is of utmost importance to disinfect countertops, stoves, sinks, floors, toilets, bathtubs and showers, door handles, and light switches to avoid spreading any more virus’ or bacteria throughout your home.
