RevitaRugs Offers All-May Rug Cleaning Discount

revitaRUGS announced that they are offering area rug cleaning discounts in support of asthma and allergy awareness month this May. No one cares about health problems until they have health problems. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cite multiple sources causing poor indoor air quality and how it effects our everyday life: “Poor indoor air quality (pollution) can bother your eyes, nose, and throat. It can also lead to chronic heart and lung problems and cancer.” Toxic chemicals often get into the human body. We inhale them, swallow them in contaminated food or water, or in some cases, absorb them through our skin. This can occur whether we live in a rural or isolated area, in the middle of a large city, or near an industrialized area. An article published about total body burden describes various pathways in which these chemicals end up inside us, and the health effects. Any type of pollution has the ability to attach itself to dust particles in the air and water currents, and travel far from where it was produced. Children, our most vulnerable population, are the most exposed to contaminated dust on a regular basis because they commonly put their hands in their mouths. The elderly are also susceptible to respiratory illnesses triggered by these pollutants. Dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, rat/rodent droppings, bed bugs, dead flies, our dead skin cells (1.5 million skin cells per hour), smoke, pesticides, and household bio-aerosols turn your home into a petri dish. They exist in all your carpeting, area rugs, upholstered furniture, bedding and curtains. The EPA published an interesting report called, “Residential Asthma Trigger and Indoor Air Quality Checklist,” which states: “Dust in carpet could be making your asthma worse.” (source: www.epa.gov). May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month and the American Lung Association urges people to ‘Take Control’ with Five Steps for Better Breathing. “RevitaRUGS also acknowledges these respiratory issues. We have raised the bar on proper and safe cleaning of area rugs, and improving your home’s indoor air quality,” says Azita Goldman, VP of Business Development. Area rugs act like an air filter and collect contaminants; therefore, they need routine cleaning. Vacuuming alone cannot rid the germs, bacteria and dust mites from your rugs. Topical steam cleaning does not clean the foundation of area rugs, or properly remove pollutants. Using harsh chemicals only defeats the purpose of sanitizing your rug because they cause further damage.
