Every day we shed skin cells and hair and our pets do too, making up a large portion of what we know as dust. However, dust is more than just skin and hair cells, it’s a combination of many different particles. Typically, dust also contains dead dust mites and their feces. Dust mite excrement causes unpleasant allergy and asthma symptoms, like wheezing, when inhaled. Other microscopic insects, pollen and bacteria can be found in house dust. Household chemicals that are sprayed and anything tracked in on your shoes can be mixed into dust for you to inhale.
Carpets and upholstery act as filters for the air in our homes. As we walk around and sit down, dust is kicked up into the air where it can circulate in the air or be inhaled by you, your kids, and your pets. However, you don’t have to rip up your carpets or keep your kids off the floor to keep them safe. With regular vacuuming, you can decrease the amount of dust in your home and with regular professional carpet cleaning you can remove the ground-in dust, dirt, and bacteria. At Carine Chem-Dry, we use the power of carbonation to lift bacteria, dust and other grime from the individual fibers of your carpets and upholstery. We also use 80% less water than traditional carpet cleaners, meaning you’ll be sitting comfortably in your home within hours, not days! Professional carpet cleaning benefits your health and lengthens the life of your carpets and upholstery. Don’t hesitate and call today for a healthier home.
