Improving Indoor Air Quality with Carpets

 

Please check out the study at:   IAQ_research

We are launching a series on improving the overall indoor environment.  Please follow us to learn more!!

But did you know that carpets and rugs can be more healthy for your indoor air than hard floors?  That’s because your carpets and rugs filters up to 80% of your indoor environment.  It’s easy to tell the difference if your carpets and rugs are maintained properly. Please check out the study above for more information.

It’s been a wonderful year for InstaDRY, but we couldn’t have done it without you. As we enter into the Christmas season once again, we are currently running a special for you and your friends called “Keep The Memories, Not The Stains!”  Since the Holiday Season is filled with a lot of fun and joy, it is also filled with a lot of mess.  Everyone is currently working hard to make the Holidays a perfect season this year.  That is why any carpet cleaning booked for the month of December, we will provide a “voucher” for a free touch up in January.

We started this special for the 2012 Holiday Season because we found many people weren’t sure what makes more sense… Get the carpets cleaned before the Holidays or after.  We all realized, why not give everyone the best of both worlds and clean the carpets before the Holiday Festivities begin and give them a free touch up in January as a Holiday Special.  This was an uncommon special that everyone seem to really enjoy and excited we are doing this again.  We hope that you can take advantage of this little special and tell your friends.

If we don’t get to hear from you before then, then please have a fun & safe Holiday Season and may the new year bring more joy and success than the previous!

I’m allergic to cats and friends who own cats!

We love finding tips from our customers.  One of our best customers is a doctor who specializes in Ear, Nose, and Throat.  He told us a really good fact about what causes cat allergies.

People tend to think that it is the cat dander alone that causes the allergies.  But think about how cats clean themselves.  They leave a protein from their saliva on their fur during their cleaning process.  So, the protein from their dander and saliva combined leaves an overabundant amount of allergens wherever they roam (furniture, clothes, etc.). This protein can take up to six months to dissipate no matter how good the clean is.

This helps explain a situation I’ve personally experienced in my life.  A friend of mine lost her cat a couple of weeks before having lunch. Another friend of mine who is highly allergic to cats joined us.  The cat owner was wearing fresh clean clothes (of course), and my other friend was dealing with puffy eyes due to her allergies. She was that sensitive to the allergies that she still had a reaction from the cat owner.

We use some of the best equipment on the market to clean homes.  These equipment are  either rated by the EPA or The Asthma & Allergy Foundation Of America.  We have had many customers who moved into a new place where the previous people owned cats.  The customers are allergic to cats and this is can be of some burden to them.  We have suggested for them to make sure and wipe down the walls and cabinets, not just the floors alone.  If allergic reaction still exists, then it can take up to six months for the protein causing allergens to dissipate.

8 Steps to a Healthy Home

I see it day and day out. With 3 little tikes constantly running in and out of the house, it can be a chore for mom to keep her head on straight let alone keep everything neat and tidy. But with allergies and asthma being a constant reminder of the humid air here in Central Florida, I thought it might be helpful to post this helpful guide to 8 steps to a Healthy home from the CDC. Here’s the link to the post if you want to read more!

My guys over at InstaDRY have got you covered on the first 2 steps to a healthy home!

1. Dry. Water is a precondition for mold, insects, rodents, and dust mites all of which are
linked with asthma. Water is also the most important factor affecting durability of a home
and maintenance costs. Property Maintenance for a Healthy Home (Draft) 4/14/2006

2. Cleanable. It is inevitable that a home will have some dust. The goal of a healthy home
is to minimize dust brought into the home and to make it easier to clean and remove
dust and allergens.
3. Well Ventilated. Ventilation provides a mechanism to remove air contaminants and
reduce dust allergens. Continue reading “8 Steps to a Healthy Home”
