What's New?
Over the past few month's, A Clean Footprint has received many requests from our clients to apply Anti-Static Treatments during our carpet cleaning services.
With winter approaching, those dreaded and unexpected static electricity shocks start occurring. In fact, some seem so harsh it's almost like placing your finger inside an AC outlet. These "static electricity zaps" are produced by heating systems drying out the air in our homes and offices and the humidity level dropping below 40 percent. 
End the winter torture today and ask our certified personnel about our Anti-Static Treatment Specials!
I recently tried your services and could not have been more happier.  Once your company cleaned our three mattresses', we have found that we can breath once again at night. My daughter doesn't experience any sniffling or coughing as she had been. Your service is worth every penny! I will be calling you again in the next year. Thanks for all you have done for my family.

Mattress Cleaning Services

Are you exposed to up to 2 million mites in your mattress? The mattress is, without a doubt, one of the dirtiest objects we come in contact with each day.

Years back, mattress cleaning was not really ever thought of until more and more documented facts gathered. Documented reports show that symptoms of dust mite survive under warm, dark and humid conditions. Dust mites are tiny animals you cannot see unless by magnification. It's a known fact, every home naturally has dust mites. They feed on skin flakes and are found in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, bedcovers, clothes, stuffed toys, and fabric or other fabric covered items.

Allergies resulting from dust mites include wheezing or tight chest, Itchy or watery eyes, blocked nose passages, sneezing, asthma, sinus symptoms, eczema, night-time coughing for no reason, and hay fever. Would you believe that dust mite excrement and skin particles can equal up to a pound per year in a mattress?
The causes of this unhygienic and health threatening state of affairs are numerous and complex. Men, women and children spend years on mattresses that are extremely soiled and thus dangerous to their health. It is erroneous to believe that a sheet will protect against this kind of dirt. A bed sheet protects against these particles about as much as a fishing net would protect against sand.
We have found that a mattress cleaning is dependent upon a persons health, their environment, pets and personal preference. We normally recommend that a new mattress be cleaned once a year to ensure a better sleep atmosphere. Older mattress's may require more frequent cleanings. When it comes to children, please make it a special priority every few months.

What About My Pillows?
Self Vacuuming ...

Pillows become a hygienic issues once many months have gone due to skin particles and oils left behind over time from sleep. Here at A Clean Footprint, we recommend that you replace your pillows at least every other year, if not every year. A disinfectant will definitely help rid your pillows always of bacteria as well as viruses. Pay particular attention to areas very close to your nose and mouth. You can kill dust mites by placing your pillow in the freezer for an hour!

You may optionally vacuum your mattress at any time to try and save money. Please use a vacuum with a HEPA filter system to centralize all that is collected. The only downfall to this method is that the dirt will clog-up in the mattress fabric. Therefore, you will have alot still trapped inside the mattress in the end. Also please know that the dustiest place in a bedroom is underneath a bed.
Mattress Covers

Mattress covers will help as long as it is placed on a new mattress or one that has been recently cleaned. Otherwise you will be wasting your money and along with allowing mold, fungus and bacteria growth to increase. Mattress covers should be washed weekly along with the normal bed linens.
