For most people, dust mites, mold and other household pollutants are mere nuisances, but the problem is much more serious for others. A number of individuals suffer from allergies to dust mites and mold. For those sufferers, even a low level of pollutants in the indoor air could pose a serious health risk. Sensitive individuals may experience respiratory irritation and even trouble breathing when presented with dust mites and mold infestations.

As with many indoor pollutants, repeated exposure can make the problem much worse. While a single exposure to dust mites or mold may not be enough to trigger a reaction, repeated exposure could cause serious issues and even put their health at risk.

If you or someone you love suffers from allergies to dust mites or mold, you want to keep the air inside your home as clean as possible. If you run a business, you want to make sure your employees are properly protected and that you are meeting your legal obligation to provide a safe and healthy workplace. Either way, vapor steam cleaning can banish dust mites and send mold packing.

When you vacuum the carpets in your home or office, the particles trapped within the fibers go right into the air. Some of those particles may contain dust mites and mold, and that can make allergy problems even worse. In fact, many allergy sufferers find it difficult to stay in a carpeted room that has just been vacuumed.

Vapor steam cleaning is much different. Unlike traditional vacuum cleaners, a vapor steam cleaner goes deep into the fiber of the carpet, pulling dust mites, dirt, mold and other allergens directly into the cleaner and whisking them out of your home or office.

When you clean the carpet in your home or office with a vapor steam cleaner, you remove the built-in dirt and debris that has been lurking there. Instead of merely moving the dirt from the carpet to the air, you are getting rid of it completely. That can make all the difference in the world to an allergy sufferer, reducing serious health risks and other dangerous complications.

Even if you do not suffer from allergies, vapor steam cleaning will still make your home or office cleaner and more pleasant. With so many benefits, it is no wonder so many people are ditching the vacuum for the quality and convenience of vapor steam cleaning.
