Technically, it’s still early fall. Weather is moderate, temperatures are growing cooler, but we are far from the inconveniences of winter. Now is a great time to make sure your carpets are ready for the upcoming holidays. The last thing you want to do is rush a carpet cleaning just before guests arrive, risking a damp floor underfoot.

ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip will do the best job for your dollar and have things ready when you need them.
According to the National Center for Healthy Housing, about 40 percent of the population has developed a sensitivity to some form of allergens. Combine that with the fact that over 65 percent of American home floors are covered by carpeting. The center also states that in the matter of a few months, carpets collect between five and 25 grams of dirt and dust in every square meter of floor that they cover. That dust contains soil from outdoors as well as pollen, skin flakes, small insect particles, organic plant matter, dust mites, mold spores, and dust from fabrics. If someone in your family has an allergy or asthma, any one of those items may make their health worse or trigger an allergic reaction. If you have dogs, cats, or other pets at large in the home, you can add pet dander, urine, and animal feces to that list. If you have cats, include the dust that comes from the cat box.
For homes under 2,000 square feet, the living room makes up about ten percent…around 250 square feet. That’s about 23 square meters. So, according to the estimates we’ve mentioned, that carpet in one room alone could contain as much as 575 grams of dirt and dust. No wonder the carpeting looks so bright after we’re done cleaning it! We take away a lot of dirt and leave you with the best smelling, best looking living room in Sycamore, DeKalb, or DeKalb County.
