Like it or not, this day in age, we spend more and more of our time indoors. As our time indoors increases, so does our exposure to indoor allergens. Our carpets and upholstery are a haven for many of the bugs, molds, and bacteria that make us, our kids, and our pets wheezy and sick.

Dust Mite

Carpet manufactures recommend professional wall-to-wall carpet cleaning every 12 to 24 months. The EPA suggests even more frequent cleaning. Regular vacuuming and immediate cleanups after spils will definitely help, but you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to call the carpet guy every once in a while.

Dust Mites

You shouldn't wait until your carpet is soiled before cleaning. Significant soil accumulation occurs at the base of the carpet fibers long before it becomes visible at the edges. Experts agree that cleans that a clean carpet will contribute not only to the overall aesthetics of your home or office, but it plays a vital role in protecting the people who live or work there.

Dust Mites

Ten percent of the population is allergic to dust mites. Around eighty percent of asthmatic children are allergic to dust mites.

Dust mites are microscopic bugs that live in your carpets and upholstery. They're indoor, blind, and sticky. They eat our dead skin, live only thirty days, and depend on humidity for their water. Harmless enough, right? Except that their powdery feces float in their air and cause all sorts of allergies. They release about twenty of these per day and a female will raise thirty new dust mites in her life cycle. Their sticky leg pads give them immunity from simple vacuuming and their body structure lets them thrive in higher humidity. Dust mite colonies can survive even in dry conditions for several months, so if you want to truly protect those dearest to you, you should call a professional.
