Do you have carpet?
Did you know that carpet, sofas, recliners, and anything containing fabric act as air filters in your home? Kind of gross right? When air is circulating in your home, your upholstery likes to collect some it. Have you ever slapped your couch in direct sun light and see all dust fly into the air? There is even more dust inbedded in the fibers too. When you get home from a long day at work and sit on that comfy couch, you’re breathing that dust. You should vacuum your upholstery twice a month, or hire a professional cleaner to do a thorough job.
Buy a good vacuum cleaner.
Have you ever heard of Dyson or Shark vacuums? They do a wonderful job extracting dirt and dust from your carpet. In order to maintain a healthy home, you should vacuum your carpet, rugs, upholstery and even mattresses once or twice a week. Did you know that dust contains cock roach parts and dust mite feces? You don’t want to breathe that crap in, right? Stick to a good vacuum regime and you’ll notice the better difference in air quality.
Change your bed sheets once a week.
Just like when you slapped your sofa and saw dust launch into the air, the same happens with your mattress. change those sheets often and also make sure to vacuum your mattress too! We spend half our life in bed. You should take care of your unconscious self too. Your sleeping patterns may improve and also your allergies may decrease too.
You should also consider hiring a professional cleaner once or twice a year to maintain the health of your house. Their equipment is much more powerful which means more dust and dirt will be extracted. They also have ways of sanitizing and killing germs and bacteria from pet accidents, vomit, and any food spills that may be a breeding ground for bacteria.
Do you have hard wood floors?
We recommend purchasing a swiffer with an antibacterial cleaner. This will kill of the mold and bacteria dwelling on the floors in your home. This only needs to be done twice a month or more considering on the amount of traffic your floors receive.
