What is Dust? Let’s break it down into a mathematical equation.
Human/animal hair+ dead skin + clothing fibers + dirt + bugs + food particles= DUST
Dust mites feed off of the various particles in the dust. Their favorite food is dead skin from humans or animals. These little bugs can cause allergies and asthma. Allergy symptoms can include, itchy and redness of eyes, sneezing, and a runny nose. If you use a microscope, you can actually see the dust mites!
To avoid allergies and asthma caused from dust mites, it’s important to get rid of the dust in your office (and house). A professional cleaning company is your best bet; Preventing you from being exposed to all of the dust throughout the office and using the proper equipment such as a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) vacuum cleaner. Another pro to hiring a commercial cleaning service is they won’t miss a spot. Professional cleaners stick to a strict cleaning schedule, making sure to do high dusting at least once a month, and dusting ALL surfaces twice a week (the dusting schedule depends on the size and needs of your facility).
