What is dust? Common house dust is more disgusting than you think. Depending on where you live, it can contain a microscopic concoction of pet dander, pollen, mold spores, fungus, bacteria, bits of rotted plants and dead insects. But that's not all. It can also contain millions of dust mites whose waste is a leading trigger of asthma, eczema, and allergic inflammation. Dust mites are 1/100th of an inch in size and will "poop" 100 times their body weight in their short lifetime.  The medical community has identified dust mite, dust mite feces, and pet allergens as posing the greatest risk for the development of allergies in the in the first place, continued suffering of those with allergic illness and a component in the development of much more serious allergic diseases such as asthma and sinuitis.

Many vacuum cleaners do not filter fine dust effectively. Some adequately pull small particles out of your carpeting and bedding, but their filter systems are so porous that microscopic particles (dust mites, dust mite feces, pet allergens, etc.) pass through the cleaner and are expelled back into the air you breath! If your allergy symptoms seem worse after you just cleaned your home then you know exactly what I am talking about. But before you start freaking out at the thought of microscopic menaces floating around your house consider this first: You can't escape germs, dust mites, etc. completely - and what's more, according to some researchers, a little exposure to some germs might help build up a healthy immune system.

So here's the bottom line: It's smart to limit the allergens and germs that shack up with you and your loved ones, without trying to aim for a lab-sterile environment around the house. One of the most important things you can do is to vacuum your entire house three times per week using a true HEPA (high efficiency particulate arresting) filtration system, which traps dust mites and other allergens. Also, if your little one shows the signs of a pet allergy, try to keep your child and "Fido" in different rooms, and definitely out of the same bed. If your allergies continue then you may want to give us a call for a FREE Indoor Air Quality Survey. Through this survey we attempt to discover other methods that will reduce or eliminate the misery of allergies.

Do you love the smell of a Christmas Tree in your home? Who doesn't? We all know the potential fire hazard of a real Christmas tree. Every year we are reminded to check our tree daily for dry pine needles and add water accordingly. But, did you know there is another potential hazard - MOLD. That's right! According to the research the amount of mold can increase by as much as (5) times during the Christmas Holidays! Here are some steps you can take to reduce the amount of mold in your home this Holiday Season:

1). Buy an artificial tree. I know this is obvious, but if you are highly allergic to mold like me this may be the way you need to go;

2). Change the Whole House Filter (furnace filter) in your home during the Holidays to a HEPA Filter. This filter traps dust, dander, dust mites, and mold; 

3). Vacuum all carpets and rugs three times per week using a true HEPA filtration vacuum system;

4). Allow in as much fresh air as possible;

5). Take down the tree as soon as the Christmas Holidays are over.

If your allergy symptoms got worse during the Holidays plan on having us professionally steam clean all of the carpets in your home. Our system can extract mold and other substances from the carpets leaving them once again clean and fresh.

Merry Christmas!

If you have ever felt victimized by uneducated, uniformed, & sometimes downright unscrupulous cleaners your not alone. All to often I receive a telephone call from a desperate person wanting me to "re-clean" their carpets, rugs, upholstery, or tile because the previous cleaner did a very poor job. Recently I received a telephone call from a wonderful family who had just purchased a (3) year old, 4,300 square foot home, and the white carpets looked dull and dingy throughout the home.  A "professional" cleaner had been hired two weeks earlier and the carpets had turned out terrible. Could this situation had been avoided? YES!

Here are some tips that will help you hire the right company:

1). There is nothing better than a referral. If you know someone who has recently hired a professional cleaning service ask them about their experience with that particular company and would they recommend them and use them again;

2). Ask the company if they have a "Special Business License" issued by the County of Sacramento. The law states that if a professional cleaning company is entering homes they are suppose to have a Special Business License which is different from the standard business license issued by the County. With a Special Business License you know that the person has been fingerprinted by the Sacramento County Sheriff Department and a background check has been performed. Ask for their Special Business License Number and call (916) 874-6644 to verify that it is current. Our Special Business License number is 632393;

3). Log onto their website and take a look around. Does it appear to be rinky-dink? Does it have testimonials? If their own clients aren't willing to speak up for them then that should be a red flag;

4). Ask them for their insurance carrier, amount of insurance, and policy number. They should have at least a $1,000,000 liability policy. This protects you in the event something gets damaged. Our insurance is through Safeco Business Insurance and our policy number is (01-CH-545888-20);

5). Are they going to use a Truckmount Unit or a Portable Unit. If they say portable unit then say "No thank you". Portable units were not designed to deal with residential carpets. If the cleaner really is a professional they will have a truckmount unit. Our truckmount is so big and powerful that we have to tow it in a trailer because it is simply too big for a van;

6). Finally, if their offer sounds to good to be true it probably is. I have learned over the years that in order to meet the clients' expectations I must be willing to take my time and not rush the job. As one of my clients so eloquently stated "Cheap things are good and good things aren't cheap".
