The benefits of a clean home may extend beyond a house that looks good. Doctors say houses that are cleaned regularly tend to have fewer airborne particles that can cause asthma and allergies than houses that are not.
Household dust is a mixture of potentially allergenic materials. Dust may contain fiber from different types of fabrics, dander from pets, bacteria, food particles, bits of plants and microscopic mites. To help clear the air your family breathes, allergists recommend regularly cleaning your house and keeping linens and towels clean.
The problem with grabbing a dust cloth and wiping the house from top to bottom is that most traditional dusting methods simply redistribute, rather than remove, dust. You could dust all day with feather or static dusters and not make much of a difference. This frustration has led cleaning product manufacturers to focus on how to remove dust from the home and clean up the air as well as the furniture.
"The rising rates of allergies and asthma have brought the dust bunnies out from under the bed, so to speak. People have become increasingly concerned with keeping their homes free from dust-not just for a clean appearance, but for the health benefits," says Troy Anderson, co-founder of the company FilterStream®.
The machine's dust collection system then traps large particles in a reusable stainless steel screen, while a HEPA filter removes 99.97 percent of smaller, microscopic dust particles from a home. Such power cleaning devices can help keep homes clean and families healthy.
