Indoor air quality (IAQ) has been a circulating conversation as of recently in the United States.  The three major surfaces most affected by indoor air quality are flooring, ceilings, and walls.  With most people spending most of their time indoors, its no wonder concern has arisen in recent years.

When you talk about IAQ, a lot of factors come into play.  Not only do normal indoor surfaces like flooring, walls, and ceilings play a role, but so do many other factors.  One of the biggest causes is improper cleaning.  Regularly keeping your home, or other indoor areas cleaned and sanitized can extract trapped contaminants from the surfaces of the indoor spaces and improve air quality.  Other causes of poor air quality include poor ventilation, indoor pollutants, outdoor pollutants, and contamination from inadequate moisture control.

When it comes to carpeting, dust and particles dont remain in the air for long.  They settle quickly to a horizontal surface.  Carpeting acts as a dirt trap, that is until someone vacuums over them, which greatly helps reduce the number of particles in the air.  It is recommended that you vacuum your home weekly, or even daily to ensure proper extraction.  Carpet can appear to be clean, even after vacuuming, but it is important to look to professionals to ensure your carpet and flooring are sanitized and completely clean.

Using kid-friendly and pet-friendly products, rest assured that our cleaning products are safe to use in your home.   Keep the humidity levels below 51% in your home. This not only helps the environment, but it will reduce the chances of a good environment for dust mites to thrive.  Keeping your hard surface flooring like wood and tile clean is much easier than carpet because you can visibly see the dirt on the hard surface.

At Centurion Services, we are the expert carpet cleaners in Southeast Michigan.  Even if you vacuum regularly, there is no guarantee that your carpet is really, truly clean.  Our professional cleaning services can easily get to the dirt, germs, and allergens that are hidden deep inside your carpet fibers.
