Dust Mites, Allergies and Fleas - How can Carpet Cleaning Help?

Dust Mites
What is a Dust Mite? A Dust Mite is a microscopic organism that lives in your home. The dust mites and their waste products thrive in the following: Carpets, Rugs, Curtains, Upholstery and Sofas etc.

Dust Mites feed on shed scales of human skin (dust). They thrive in warm humid conditions and the waste product they produce can cause allergic reactions and asthma. Symptoms may include one or more of the following: Sneezing, runny nose, blocked nose and coughing.

If you are prone to allergic reactions or asthma you may like to consider having your carpets and soft furnishings professional cleaned. It is also beneficial to have them cleaned every 6 months which will control the number of dust mites in your home. Whilst regular hovering will help, the only really sure way of controlling Dust Mites is to have your carpets cleaned using Hot Water Extraction or "Steam Cleaning" which will kill and remove Dust Mites reducing the symptoms that they cause.
Anyone suffering from Allergies will benefit from having their carpets professionally cleaned and will benefit from the removal of Dust Mites, Pet Hair and other irritants. Pet hair is often the most common cause of allergies in the domestic home and can be very difficult to remove from deep piled carpets and rugs.
Having your carpets, rugs and upholstery professional cleaned by one of our dedicated carpet cleaners will ensure your home is deep cleaned removing many soil deposits and irritants which the naked eye cannot see.
Flea Carpet Treatments
The common flea (Ctenocephalides felix) which is present on most cats and dogs can be a nuisance in the home. Once your home is infected with fleas they can be extremely hard to irradicate.
Fleas have four main stages in their life cycle: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The total flea life cycle can range from a couple weeks to several months, depending on environmental conditions. The eggs are not sticky (like some parasites), and they usually fall off of the animal into the carpet.
An egg may develop into an adult flea within 14 days if conditions are ideal. Each fertilized female may lay as many as 25 eggs per day....more than 800 in her lifetime. In just thirty days, 25 adult female fleas can multiply to as many as a quarter of a million fleas! Fleas are capable of transmitting disease to both people and pets - fleas can carry typhus, tapeworms and other diseases.
A special treatment can be added and sprayed onto all infected areas during the carpet cleaning process which will penetrate hard to reach areas killing them dead. Our treatments also prevent any eggs from re hatching leaving you with piece the of mind that your home is flea free.
