Dust Mite Allergen
A study of 25 homes in Wisconsin was conducted to determine the effect of Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning on dust mites. The study showed a 78% drop in the average mite count. An extended study of 63 homes in Georgia and Wisconsin showed mite allergen decreased by 75% one day after Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning.
This research has been peer reviewed and was one of only 500 papers worldwide that was accepted for presentation at the Sixth International Conference on Indoor Air Quality and the Environment in Helsinki , Finland .
Mold and Mold Spores
Mold spores travel with wind current and are deposited on all indoor and outdoor surfaces. Mold allergens are found virtually everywhere in residential and commercial environments.
Indoor Air Quality research showing dry carpet extraction removes mold spores was confirmed by studies conducted in Wisconsin and Georgia . Mold spore levels in the Georgia test homes (humid climate decreased by 85%, while levels in the Wisconsin homes (temperate climate) decreased by 94%.
This study was also presented in July 1996, at the Seventh International IAQ Conference in Nagoya , Japan .
Indoor Air Quality
Carpet plays in important and healthful role in filtering the air indoors. It traps and holds soil, dust and allergens. The vertical pile of carpet traps and holds many times its weight in small particles, including dust and allergens that enter the indoor environment and descend onto it from above. Substantial research suggests that carpet does not release these elements back into the air. However, just as it is important to clean or replace a furnace or HVAC filter, it’s important to routinely clean carpets.
Pet allergens are one of the top indoor allergens to which people are sensitive. In 1995 and 1996, several homes with a cat in the residence for at least one year, were studied for the presence of cat allergens and the effects of Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning in reducing them.
The study established that cat allergens (dander, hair and saliva) in carpet can be decreased 85% with a single Dry Extraction Cleaning of carpet. A second cleaning reduces the number of these allergens to even lower levels.
