How important is Vacuuming?

Vacuuming is the most important cleaning task one can do to remove Allergen in the air. By vacuuming one can remove 60 percent of dust build up in the home. Most allergies are dust related and if you have pets you can be assure theres more there then meets the eye. Most often, pet allergy is triggered by exposure to the dead flakes of skin (dander) a pet sheds. Any animal with fur can be a source of pet allergies. There is dust mites in mattresses. Dust in AC vents and carpet can be a source to catch many of the dust that collects on the carpet.

Best way of removing all of these harmful particles in the air is to do full cleaning starting with your vents. We suggest you have your AC ducts cleaned and your filters replace. Then do a dust “shake down” thats when you dust everything starting from the ceiling using a dust mop on a pole to reach places you cant reach. Make sure to work your way down wiping the walls and don’t forget to hit all ceiling fans. Use a feather duster to remove dust from book shelfs and furniture leaving no dust behind. Remember you can use a small blower to get behind bookshelves and hard to reach furniture. Please use a mask to protect you from inhaling the dust. Use protective eyewear and cover your hair if you not ready to shower immediately afterwards. Take your time don’t rush, allow the vacuum to do its job. Make sure to invest in a vacuum with a hepa air filter. Make an air filter using a cheap box fan. Go to a hardware and pick up Filtrete 1500 Ultra Allergen air Filter by 3M. Find one that fits closest to a box fan and I use tie downs to hold in place. I then turn the fan on high and place it in varies places in the room to move airborne particles. Make sure to clean the filter outside your home. I would suggest you to use a filter like this for your AC unit. If you don’t want to spend the money on one like this then make sure to replace them every 3 to 6 months. Another suggestion is to have your carpet Steam Clean. We have 2 step process which involves rinsing all carpet free of soaps and residue. We recommend vacuuming afterwards to remove any dust and carpet fibers that come loose after cleaning. Following this system will help your family to breath and live better. Remember we can take care of all your carpet cleaning and upholstery needs. We also do tile and floor cleaning. call Santa Clarita deep steam carpet clean.
