Why IAQ Matters
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health. Good IAQ is
an important component of a healthy indoor environment.
IAQ problems can:
- Increase long- and short-term health problems
- Aggravate asthma and other respiratory illnesses
- Contribute to absenteeism
- Negatively impact productivity
- Affect employee satisfaction
- Accelerate the deterioration and reduce the efficiency of your facility
- Create liability issues
According to the EPA, the levels of indoor air pollutants are often several times higher than outdoor levels. Dirt, dust, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are just some of the pollutants in the air.
Carpet and other textiles act as a giant filter for the air in your facility, collecting and trapping these pollutants and preventing them from returning back into the air. However, without regular and proper cleaning, they lose their filtration abilities — and those harmful particles cycle back into the air, jeopardizing the indoor air quality (IAQ) for your entire facility.
For every company, one of its most important investments is its employees and providing them with a healthy work environment. One essential way to keep your employees healthy and increase productivity is by maintaining healthy air quality.
milliCare can help improve your indoor air quality by removing pollutants in your carpet and other textiles. Our dry carpet cleaning system removes up to 99% of pollutants.
Eliminate these irritants from your workplace using our advanced carpet-cleaning system. All carpet cleaning systems are not created equal. For instance, hot-water extraction carpet cleaning methods use tons of water, which can increase the chance of mold, mildew, and wickback. Plus, the chemical solutions used in some cleaning methods can be detrimental to IAQ. Rather than solving the issue, they generate more problems. Our dry-polymer system removes up to 99% of pollutants from your carpet. It also uses 99% less water compared to hot water extraction systems. When buildings are unoccupied, there’s an increased risk of mold, so a dry cleaning system is a smart choice.
Not only does milliCare’s proprietary, environmentally safe carpet cleaning procedure promote higher IAQ, but it also draws up ground-in grime, dirt, oils, and pollutants from deep in the carpet fibers. Our system also keeps carpet cleaner two to three times longer, and can significantly extend its life to save you money. You’ll expect your carpet and textiles to look cleaner after we leave, but you may also notice that your air smells and feels cleaner too.
That’s because milliCare’s proprietary dry carpet cleaning system has been shown to remove up to 99% of the pollutants from the air when it’s used with a properly maintained HVAC system. So take a deep breath, and then another, because there’s plenty more where that came from.
