A healthy home is well ventilated; free of pests, toxins, and dangerous gases; dry; clean; comfortable; and affordable. Good cleaning and maintenance practices can achieve these conditions, even in an older home.
Carpets help keep your home healthy
Most people think their homes are clean and healthy, but current trends in energy-saving insulation and interior decoration are impacting on our health.
Double-glazing and insulation help to reduce the effects of global warming but they have a bad effect on the microenvironment within our homes. Warmth, a reduction in ventilation and being too busy to vacuum regularly leads to a proliferation in dust mites, the tiny pests which live on our dead skin cells in the home.
Interior design trends favour uncarpeted floor finishes and leather sofas, which make matters worse by allowing the irritants to freely, circulate as we move through our homes. There is a direct link between these trends and the increase in asthma and other environmental illnesses.
Your carpets and soft furnishings trap most of the impurities in the air until you are ready to clean them. We can advise you on how simple planned maintenance will transform your home and keeps your furnishings clean, fresh and healthy.

Here is a fact for you…
Dust mites live primarily off flakes of skin, and deposit proteins from their guts, which can cause allergy and asthma in humans. In the UK most homes have sufficient house dust mite allergen in them to be relevant to the health of asthmatics.
Protect your furniture against dust mites… and wear and tear
The Ideal Group’s ‘Healthy Home’ system of cleaning is designed to give people with busy lives the peace-of-mind that their home is clean, safe and will help prevent their family from allergies.
All the Healthy Home products are tested and proven to be environmentally safe for humans, pets and plants, and used as part of a regular maintenance programme will keep your furnishings looking like new and eliminate allergens from the House Dust Mite.
The main anti-allergen product is PROmite™, a unique product which is applied in a fine spray to cover each and every fibre of your furnishings with an ‘invisible shield’ after cleaning. This will benefit you in three ways:
Prevents new house dust mites living on the protected surface… stopping their allergen.
Will give protection from most household soils and spills including oil spills.
Retards the wear and will make your treated fabrics and carpets look newer and cleaner for longer.
Here is a fact for you…
Research shows that, amazingly, the average home collects up to 4kg of dust each year – enough to fill 28 pint glasses! The dust contains skin cells, pollen spores, dust mites and their dropping, a nasty prospect for most people – even worse if you’re an allergy sufferer.
