Residential Residential Cleaning on Long Island - Three Clean Home Facts

 

Clean Home Fact #1:

You should have Regular Cleanings. Dirt is an Abrasive (like sandpaper). So every time you step on the carpet or flooring, you’re grinding in the dirt. It’s proven that clean carpets and flooring will last much longer than dirty carpets or flooring. A proper frequency of cleaning and vacuuming is critical, not only for your flooring, but for the overall health of your home.

 

Clean Home Fact #2:

Getting up the dirt is not the only reason for a cleaning. Air contains bacteria, fungus, pollens, and smoke/smog, and hundreds of other chemicals. When you or your family members come into your home, the bacteria, and other chemicals, not surprisingly, come inside with you to rest inside your home.

 

Clean Home Fact #3:

A clean home is a healthier home. One major source of recurring sickness within homes can be dust, pollens, or fungus that may lay dormant within your home. If you do suffer from allergies, asthma, emphysema or any other breathing problems, you should know that cleanliness is a key to staying healthy! Tobacco smoke contains over 4000 different chemical compounds, 43 of which cause cancer. Even if you don’t smoke, those chemicals come in contact with your hands, shoes, and clothing throughout the day and unfortunately get tracked back into your home.

The bottom line is… A Routine household cleaning is imperative to your Health!!
