Have you ever seen a dust mite up close? Chances are you wouldn’t. Dust mites are microscopic creatures that lurk about your home unseen. When magnified, however, these itty, bitty insects look like spiders!
Seven thousand of these creatures can fit on a single fingernail. Up to two hundred million dust mites can infest your home at any given time, and they can double their population in ten hours. But this isn’t the real problem, the trouble is each dust mites can produce up to 40 pieces of feces a day and it is a protein in this refuse that research reveals causes most allergy and asthma attacks. Did you know the Fall and Winter months are a particular problem for dust mite infestation? As we close up our houses and the concentrations of dust mites and their feces increases inside. Dust mites primarily live on dead skin cells regularly shed from humans and their animal pets. They can cause allergic reactions in asthmatics and others who are allergic to their feces.
Even worse, a typical used mattress may have anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million mites inside. Carpeting and household upholstery support even higher mite populations. You can control the problem dust mites cause, and reduce their sheer numbers, by making sure to schedule regular carpet cleanings. A professional cleaning is recommended at least once every 12 months to maintain a healthy and happy home.
To get all the dirt, allergens, chemicals and other pollutants out, major carpet manufacturers recommend one cleaning method over all the others—hot water extraction, like VICTORIA CARPET CARE uses. A shampooer that you rent from the grocery store can’t even begin to deliver the same results.
Our technicians are trained and certified to provide the best possible cleaning. In addition, we fully guarantees every cleaning job we do. If you aren’t happy with our work, we’ll re-clean carpets for free. If you still aren’t satisfied, you don’t pay anything.
