How Does Dust Affect Your Air Quality?

The air quality that you breathe inside your home directly affects your health and the health of your family. While dust mites aren’t the only pollutant that can cause harm to your health, they sure are high on the list. Keeping your home, flooring, and furniture clean will limit the amount of dust mites around your home. While regularly vacuuming and dusting is definitely recommended – have you considered getting your flooring and furniture professionally cleaned?

What can a professional steam cleaning do for your home?

Besides removing the dust mites from your flooring and furniture, steam cleaning can suction almost every particle of dirt or debris around your home. When you don’t clean around your floors or your sofas, you end up walking and sitting on dust particles. Every movement stirs up the air, which could cause you to cough, sneeze, have itchy eyes, etc. Using the hot water extraction method (another way to say steam cleaning) you won’t be adding extra harsh chemicals around you and you’ll even be removing the gross “stuff” that’s causing you problems!

What happens if you live with bad air quality?

Not only will you likely experience uncomfortable symptoms like coughing, but you’ll also probably have a higher chance of catching respiratory conditions like colds or bronchitis.

How else can you improve your air quality?

In addition to professionally steam cleaning your flooring and furniture, you can also increase the air ventilation around your home. It is recommended to keep your windows and doors shut because the outside pollutants can easily come inside if you do, but using an air filter and trickle ventilation works extremely well.

How often should you have your home professionally steam cleaned?

At least once per year to keep your flooring, furniture, and air quality clean. If you tend to have higher-traffic areas around your home, then you may opt to clean more frequently throughout the year. It’s your home, you be the judge – if you feel that your carpet is beginning to seem dirty or you notice that you’ve been itching your eyes frequently, give us a call!
