Whether you're resting in a mountain cabin, traveling through a city, or being vented out an airlock into outer space, dust is all around you. Microscopic particles—usually a combination of soil, pollen, skin cells, and minerals—can pile up quickly indoors. The problem is exacerbated by tiny creatures called dust mites, which gather in groups of 100 to 500 per gram of dust to devour flakes of human skin while multiplying in number, excreting waste, and probably chittering away. No matter where you are on Earth, a mote of dust is presently traveling straight toward your eye, thanks to the persistent creation of dust in almost any climate humans inhabit.
Even beyond our planet, dust is ubiquitous: astronomers face the universe's untidiness every time they peer through a telescope and find formations of cosmic dust, which absorb the visible light around them. Although it comes from exploding stars rather than flaky humans, space dust isn't so different from the domestic variety: a 2007 paper published in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science explored the similarities between the formation of dust bunnies under beds and the coagulation of space dust into planets.
Taking the stress out of housecleaning, the bonded and insured teams from Mumz Cleaning Service keep homes in peak form by meticulously seeking out and destroying any signs of dust or grime. Custom appointments allow homeowners to dictate exactly where the technicians should take their arsenal of cleaning equipment and specially formulated products. Over the course of a visit, the teams can beautify houses by vacuuming carpeted areas, sanitizing kitchen counters, polishing chrome fixtures, dusting baseboards, and mopping picture frames.
It's hard to clean air directly. So instead, Advanced Air Duct Solution's team of highly trained technicians cleans ventilating systems and ductwork. At both homes and offices, they use a 10-step process that relies on negative air pressure to clear ducts of dust, secondhand smoke, and residual vapors from cleaning products. They apply a similar process to chimneys too, stripping away buildup and any scraps of red velour left by Santa Claus.
Whereas many clean homes smell like some laboratory version of lemon and pinecones, the cleaning crew at Green Apple Clean & Steam leaves homes free of any trace of noxious fumes. That's because they clean using only nontoxic formulas derived from cruelty-free, plant-based ingredients. They compound this air-clearing process with steam cleaners that banish bacteria, allergens, and dust mites from myriad floor surfaces and upholstery.
