Cleaning for Health! Did you know….?

Did you know that dander, pollen, mold, and dust mite eggs can be as small as 1 micron in diameter? Yeast and bacteria particles get down to 0.4 microns. These particles that are invisible to the human eye can cause irritation to the lungs, eyes, and sinuses, putting those who suffer from asthma or allergies at greater risk!

The cleaning professionals at Designer Maid know this!  The fight against microscopic pollutants is the fight against sick building syndrome and absenteeism. It is a quest to educate and engage building occupants about the reality of maintaining healthy indoor air. It is an investment in superior cleaning tools for the long-term return of a healthier, happier home and facility!

Cleaning for Health…Tip of the Month

Pro Team…the vacuum we use and reccomend!

Why is it important to filter out particles down to such a microscopic size? According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, 25 percent of Americans suffer from allergies. Harvard researchers have observed that global warming is causing spring to arrive earlier each year, resulting in up to a 55 percent increase in the amounts of ragweed pollen in the air. What’s more, 20 million people suffer from asthma, including 9 million children, costing the U.S. $10 billion annually in direct health care costs and lost productivity.
