According to the Allergy and Asthma Center, 1 in 5 Americans suffer from allergies and these allergies are responsible for 3.4 million lost work days in the United States. Dust and dust mites that reside in our office chairs shoot into the air when we sit down, compressing the padding and displacing the air. This creates a constant flow of dust in the air at all times of the day. Those cold and flu symptoms your employees and co-workers experience are often actually allergies. Irritated eyes, runny nose, sinus pressure, sore throat, and lethargy are all symptoms of allergies that can affect the quality and quantity of work you and your co-workers perform. Regularly cleaning your office chairs and lobby furniture can greatly reduce the amount of sick days caused by allergies and asthma and can be seen as a way of saving money for your company.
Tile & Grout Cleaning
There are 2 elements to consider when explaining the process of tile and grout cleaning. The first is the ceramic tile. We only clean sealed ceramic tile. The dirt and grime should be at or very close to the surface of the tile. The pressure of our tile cleaning wand will likely remove dirt quickly.
The grout is the more difficult portion to clean. Depending on the color of the grout, the type of traffic over the grout, and the time between cleanings, dirt, spills, etc. can soak into different depths within the grout. At CST, our method will clean the surface of the grout, as well as slightly below the surface of the grout.
It is important to note that CST does not seal tile or grout. For those services, you will need to contact a tile company or a company that specifically cleans and seals tile. CST also does not strip and wax any kind of tile or clean linoleum.
According to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America, “Allergies account for over 6 million missed work and school days, and over 16 million visits to the doctor.” This is because allergy symptoms are often mistaken for cold and flu symptoms. We all know that pollen, and dust are leading allergens. So how do you avoid taking in large quantities of these allergens at home? In addition to regular carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning is the answer you are looking for. Every time you sit down on your couch, the cushion compresses and the air in the pad is displaced, shooting out the sides of the cushion. The dust in and on the fabric, as well as just inside the padding of the cushion rides that expelled air and becomes airborne. Dust and pollen are very light and will remain floating in the air for quite a while. That’s why you cough when you walk into a dusty basement that nobody has disturbed in a while. By cleaning your upholstery, the bulk of the pollen, dust, and other allergens are removed from the cushion and the amount of allergens forced into the air are greatly reduced.
Anti-Bacterial Enzyme Deodorizer
Why should you deodorize your carpet? There are multiple reasons to have an anti-bacterial enzyme deodorizer applied to your carpet and upholstery. The first reason is smell. The second reason is the health of our family. Organic bacteria can have many sources, some of which are harmful to our health.
One of the biggest sources of smells in our homes are pets. The next most common source of smell is caused by high humidity in basements. Airflow is very inefficient in most basements, especially near the floor where the carpet is. You can return your basement to an ideal entertaining space by simply having your carpet cleaned and deodorized with an enzyme deodorizer. Some kinds of mold and mildew can also be effectively treated with an enzyme deodorizer.
