Most people think that chemicals are the easy route to a clean home and they believe that these chemicals can help them get rid of any allergens and dirt from their homes. It is a bit of a paradox if you think about it. The symptoms, which bring on your allergies, are quite similar to the chemicals that are present in conventional cleaning products.
Most allergy sensitive people have similar reactions to household cleaning chemicals as they might have to dust, pollen or mites. Redness of skin, watery eyes and nose, coughing, sneezing repeatedly and skin irritation are some of the symptoms of an allergy. Nowadays, people are trying to use more and more chemicals to get rid of mites and other pests in their homes like bed bugs.
The mattress on which they sleep is sprayed with harsh chemicals, which is then inhaled throughout the duration of their sleep. This can only spell disaster for health. One of the worse things about chemical cleaners is that they reside on a surface even after you have wiped them down. The chemical residue will not only alleviate your allergy symptoms but will also prove to be dangerous if you have small children and pets in your home. Here is a brief overview of the effect of steam on allergens and bed bug infestation.
Vaporize Allergies Along With Your Worries
There are so many reasons why chemicals are not good for an allergy-ridden person. They have an extremely responsive respiratory tract that is overly sensitive to chemicals and harsh ingredients. Using them for residential cleaning can aggravate your allergies. Moreover, many people suffering from allergies have a weak immune system, because their bodies have a perpetual safeguarding mechanism, which is used to put up a shield against the constant stream of allergens that they are exposed to on a daily basis.
Chemical fumes from cleaning sprays can become airborne even after hours of cleaning, and liquid chemicals can remain stuck to surfaces after drying up. Thus, they will still be able to cause distress to an individual with allergies. Most people are converting to steam cleaning to vaporize the allergy-causing particles from their homes. It is 100% effective as vapor steam cleaning method is free from any chemicals and is just basically water, which is sprayed with high pressure in the form of a high temperature steam.
This will not only help you get rid of pollutants, but also any allergens and mites. Our experts at the NYC Steam Cleaning Service can get rid of dust, pollen, pet hair, grime and grease, dust mites, microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew and any kind of stain in your home.
