Professional Carpet Cleaning Reduces Pollutants and Fungi

Many pollutants such as dirt, dust mites, and pet hair can be found indoors and will build up in your carpet over time.  As we enter our homes there’s no way to eliminate tracking in dirt and contaminants and if you have children and/or pets then the rate at which that occurs increases.

Vacuuming is important surface cleaning but regular deeper cleaning of flooring fibers is necessary to get rid of unwanted pollution.  Professional steam cleaning reduces toxins that might be present deep in your carpet and the powerful equipment controls the amount of moisture applied and suctions out the dislodged dirt and excess water.

A certified technician using professional equipment is the best choice for removing the excess water.  These industrial machines get steam MUCH hotter, killing microbial growth, and loosening oils and dirt.  In contrast, small store rental “steam cleaners” tend to leave nighter amounts of moisture in your carpet leading to mold and mildew growth rather than removal.  Once established, fungi can be very stubborn, spreading within carpet padding and wood flooring, and airborne spores may become prolific and expensive to remove.

Professional carpet cleaning services assures the safety and clenliness of the air and surfaces in your home.  For professional carpet cleaning services, contact National Dusters today.

Healthy Lunch Box

It’s back to school, and for most parents, it’s the most wonderful time of the year!  With the kiddos going back to school, and you heading back to routine work, here are some healthy lunchbox ideas to keep them – and you- satisfied.

Put chunky chicken salad in a delicious whole wheat wrap, and garnish with some fresh greens.  Add some cherry tomatoes and corn chips with ranch for dipping on the side.

Have some bbq chicken left over from last night?  Shred and add a little extra sauce, place on an artisan or sesame seed bun and voila! Hearty, healthy lunch that will keep them full until they get home.  Put some broccoli florets on the side with spreadable cheese, and that’s a lunch that will put a smile on their face.

Who says you can’t have salmon cold? Of course you can.  Salmon is full of omega and protein, and will look appetizing sitting on a bed of lettuce leaves with some orange segments on the side.  Add some juicy cucumber spears on the side.

Don’t forget to throw in a little yummy for the little one too!  A cookie, a bag of healthy baked chips, or a little chocolate mini will perfectly compliment their healthy choices, and have them looking forward to lunch tomorrow!

From our National Dusters family to yours, stay healthy and stay happy!
