Healthy Home Facts
We all want to live in a safe environment, to keep ourselves and our families healthy. But to be able to maintain a healthy home, you need to be armed with the facts so you know what you’re up against and what to do about it.

Allergies are the single most common children’s health issue and the 5th most common chronic disease
Up to 30% of adults and 40% of kids suffer from allergies.

Benefits of Carpet Cleaning
Regular household cleaning is a simple, inexpensive, but effective regimen that helps reduce overall exposure to allergens, dust, bacteria and dander.
It is recommended to use a quality vacuum with a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter weekly or at least every other week to pick up surface-level dirt, dust and other unhealthy elements and to help maintain your carpet’s ability to act as an effective filter.
Periodic deep cleanings are also recommended 2-3 times a year, which can get down to the base of the carpet, where much of the dirt, allergens and bacteria settle.
Traditional steam cleaning services use soapy water and high pressure, which can soak through to the base of the carpet backing and create a breeding ground for mould, mildew and bacteria. It also leads to wet carpets that take a while to dry.
Chem-Dry uses green-certified solutions without any soaps or detergents, uses far less water and dries faster than traditional steam cleaning methods.
