Healthy Home Facts

In our pursuit of a safe and healthy living environment for ourselves and our families, knowledge is a powerful ally. Equipping ourselves with essential facts helps us understand the challenges we face and enables us to take proactive steps to address them effectively.


Here are some key facts about our homes that shed light on the importance of maintaining a healthy living space:


  • We spend almost 90% of our lives indoors, emphasizing the significance of the indoor environment on our well-being.


  • Allergies rank as the single most common health issue among children and are the 5th most prevalent chronic disease overall, highlighting their impact on our daily lives.


  • Shockingly, up to 30% of adults and 40% of children suffer from allergies, underscoring the widespread nature of this health concern.


  • The majority of homes harbor six or more allergens, creating potential triggers for allergies and other health issues.

Benefits of Carpet Cleaning

Maintaining a clean and healthy home doesn't have to be complicated or costly. Regular household cleaning, though simple, proves to be an effective regimen in reducing exposure to allergens, dust, bacteria, and dander, safeguarding your family's well-being.


To ensure your carpets act as efficient filters, it is recommended to use a quality vacuum equipped with a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. This helps pick up surface-level dirt, dust, and other harmful elements, contributing to the overall cleanliness of your living space.


However, periodic deep cleanings are equally important. Consider scheduling these deep cleanings 2-3 times a year to effectively target the base of the carpet, where dirt, allergens, and bacteria tend to settle.


While traditional steam cleaning services rely on soapy water and high pressure, these methods can pose drawbacks. Soaked carpets can create breeding grounds for mold, mildew, and bacteria, while extended drying times may disrupt your daily routines.
