Long Island-based DuraVac advises all homeowners to institute fall cleaning procedure to minimize health risks.
Long Island, New York (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
Recent news reports are pointing to a harsh winter that will keep people indoors as problematic if homes are not cleaned properly. Ensuring that allergens, dust mites and mold spores are regularly removed from rugs, furniture and window dressings can mean lessened risk of health issues during and DuraVac advises that all homeowners begin regular intensive cleaning in the fall to stave off issues in winter.
Allergy sufferers know that the fall months can be especially worrisome due to increased levels of pollen in the air. As pollen comes to rest on many outside surfaces, people walking outside in can and will pick up pollen along their travels each day and inadvertently bring them home. Once inside the home, pollen and other health-challenging substances such as mold spores, dust mites and other microscopic organisms can infiltrate the home and if not properly removed, cause health issues throughout the fall and winter months when windows are less likely to be open. Additionally, these irritants can get into a home’s heating system and spread rapidly through the house.
Another health risk that can pollute a home is dust and microscopic debris from wood-burning and coal-burning stoves, which are becoming more prevalent as people seek to ease the burden of home-heating oil costs from their budgets. While the residue from these alternative heat sources are not as invasive as those brought in from outdoors, they do pose a health risk as they will compromise the air-quality of the house.
The team at DuraVac suggests homeowners lay-out an intensive fall cleaning regimen as well as a regular total home cleaning plan for the winter months. At the heart of any cleaning regimen is a high-quality vacuum to capture and remove pollen, dust mites, allergens, mold spores and heating system residue. However, it must be noted that portable vacuums must be emptied once filled and as many are bagless it requires emptying the contents into the household trash receptacles. In doing so, it many times results in some of the recently captured allergens and microscopic pollutants escaping into the home again.
To prevent this one of two paths can be taken. The first is to hire a professional cleaning service to make regular visits and clean the house. This can become costly over time and does leave the homeowner at the will of the service’s schedule availability. The second option, which represents not only an investment in the health of the house but also add to the possible re-sale value, is to have a central vacuum system professionally installed. Central vacuum systems, when used regularly, will remove all captured debris to a receptacle outside of the house, sharply minimizing if not totally eliminating the captured debris from re-infiltrating the house.
