Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

The world’s largest carpet and upholstery cleaning company, Star Chem-Dry, wants all consumers to have a safe and happy holiday season. Unfortunately, improper carpet cleaning techniques can lead to serious health concerns or even death. Jett Travolta, son of the famous actor John Travolta, died at the age of 16 after experiencing a seizure, falling, and hitting his head. Jett suffered from Kawasaki disease, one which many experts believe to be caused by a toxin found in carpet cleaners. The Travolta family has acknowledged widely that they used carpet cleaners frequently throughout their home.

“It’s a sad fact that people and pets do get hurt, and even die, because of the misuse of carpet cleaners. That’s why at Star Chem-Dry, we want to make it clear what to watch out for. The holidays are supposed to be a time of cheer and happiness. We can’t control what other companies or individual homeowners do. However, at Star Chem-Dry, we clean exclusively with green products that contain no phosphates or detergents and are 100% safe and non-toxic for children, pets, and adults. We’ve also developed a proprietary hot carbonating extraction process that provides a deeper cleaning that dries faster and doesn’t affect the health of humans and pets,” said CEO Dan Tarantin.

For homeowners who choose to do their own carpet cleaning, Star Chem-Dry recommends these tips be followed to ensure all family members and pets remain safe:

1.    Only clean with green products – There’s no need to use chemicals. Green products may cost more, but they guarantee safety.
2.    Clean frequently – Waiting longer between cleaning periods allows stains, dirt, and allergens to settle into the carpet even more. This requires more cleaning, and some homeowners may be tempted to use more intense chemicals. Clean frequently with green products to maximize safety instead.
3.    Keep hard-to-clean substances away from the carpet – There is no temptation to use chemicals if the stains that set in are not hard to clean. Homeowners should set clear boundaries with pets and children regarding which materials may be used on or near the carpet.
4.    Use dust prevention techniques – In situations where a certain amount of uncleanliness is unavoidable, homeowners should use walk-on mats in high-traffic areas of the home. Keeping the air pressure inside the home higher than it is outdoors also pushes airborne dust outside. Regularly cleaned vents also encourage dust filtration.

Businesses and homeowners who do not prefer to do their own cleaning and would prefer to hire a 100% safe green-cleaning company to perform the service should contact Star Chem-Dry at 702-878-7827 or e-mail starchemdry(at)yahoo(dot)com for a free estimate and in most cases, same-day service.
