Is My Apartment Making Me Sick? 4 Ways to Combat Dust Mites, Dirty Air, & Allergens

The question “is my apartment making me sick?” is not something you want to find yourself asking. If you don’t have a strong immune system, you don’t clean thoroughly, and you don’t clean with the right tools, the answer is probably “yes”. You most likely won’t notice if your home is contaminated with dust mites and allergens until it is too late. And, you will already be feeling the effects. In this post, we will discuss how the average person can clean their house in order to prevent these harmful particles from staying on their surfaces and getting into the air.

Here Are 4 Ways to Combat Harmful Particles That Make You Sick

Deep Clean With Sirena

The first thing that needs to be done is a deep cleaning of all surfaces with a Sirena water vacuum cleaner. These vacuums are designed specifically to deep clean both hard surfaces and soft surfaces. This makes them perfect for use in any apartment, condo, or house.

Carpets trap dust mites and other allergens deep within. They are also hard to clean if you don’t have the right tools. The Sirena water vacuum system is a canister vacuum that has a rotating floor brush with real horsehair bristles in the vacuum head to reach deep into carpets, but safe enough to not scratch hardwood floors. Once the vacuum collects the dirt, debris, and other unwanted particles, they pass into the water basin. They get trapped in the water and will not be released back into the air. A simple, traditional bagged vacuum cleaner may not do a thorough enough job to keep you from getting sick. A Sirena water vacuum will, plus it’s easier to clean and store.

Ventilate Better

It goes without saying that a well-ventilated house will typically have cleaner air. This is because poor air circulation is one of the main causes of poor indoor air quality. Air is supposed to move freely around your home, and it’s almost impossible for dust mites and other harmful particles to stay airborne if they’re constantly being pushed away by fresh oxygen-rich air molecules or even a simple ceiling fan.

Clean Your Mattress

When you ask “is my apartment making me sick?” ask yourself where you spend the most time while there and you’ll find your answer. Most of us spend the majority of our time at home either on our couch or in bed. This means that it is beyond imperative that you take the time to clean your mattress thoroughly, at least once a month.

As soon as you leave for work in the morning and come back home in the evening, microscopic dust mites have been multiplying on your sleeping surface with all of their feces and skin cells (gross). If this is allowed to continue unchecked, it can cause anything from minor health annoyances to serious illnesses.

Use Powerful Disinfectants

It’s normal to lean towards hot water and maybe a little bit of simple soap while cleaning surfaces, but this won’t get things clean enough to keep you from getting sick. Powerful disinfectants are designed to kill all germs, including many you never knew were there. Be sure to spray disinfectant all over your surfaces, doorknobs, and anything you frequently touch, then let it sit for a while before wiping them clean.

Is my apartment making me sick, you ask? When it comes down to it, if it’s not properly cleaned and maintained, it probably is. Avoid this by ordering an incredible water vacuum from Sirena. To get started, order yours online here

Sirena is the new era in home cleaning equipment. I am very excited and impressed to have this as part of my collection. I have used it every day since I got it. No one will ever be sorry they invested in one!

- Tom Gasko, St. James, Missouri

I love my vacuum. I never realized how much dog hair was being left in my carpets. I have 2 German shepherds. They shed 365 days per year. I have gone through many vacuums over the years. I thought my vacuum I had now was getting the job done. Boy was I wrong. Thank you for the best vacuum on the market with a great price.

- Annette Shannon, Jefferson City, Tennessee

I have been in the market researching different products and other brand vacuums. I decided I would give Sirena a try. The product arrived quickly within 1 week of purchase. The vacuum itself came with all the parts and attachments needed. The directions were easy to follow and the vacuum was up and running within 10 minutes. I have never had a vacuum with such great suction. The amount of hair, dirt, and pollen the vacuum extracts from carpet and hardwood is amazing. For allergy sufferers this product is worth every penny!

- Emily Romano, Yardley, Pennsylvania

This vacuum so far has been one of the best I’ve ever had in my life and I can already tell a difference in the air quality of my home. The air purifiers have also been terrific and I’m very happy with my purchases. I was wanting a Rainbow but after discovering the Sirena I’m super happy with the decision I’ve made.

- Clayton Haslett, Effingham, Illinois

Definitely a 5-star vacuum! My wife's family has had a Rainbow vacuum for years, and it works great...BUT, the Sirena vacuum is definitely its equal if not better! Great suction power and a VERY clean house! I would recommend it to anyone! (and I already have!) Keep up the great products!
