Keeping Your Rugs Clean to Reduce Allergies

Keeping Your Rugs Clean to Reduce Allergies

To improve your home’s air quality for your health, there are certain cleaning routines you must do – hiring a professional carpet cleaning service is one of them. Those who suffer from asthma and allergies can tell when the seasons change by feeling their allergies increase. That is a sign that means its time to hire a professional carpet cleaning service. 

Carpet Cleaning Reduces Allergens

Carpets help absorb and remove allergens from the air. There will be fewer airborne allergens for you to worry about! Since these allergens are absorbed by the carpeting in your home, together with our friends at Westpaq Cleaning Solutions, we recommend vacuuming regularly, especially with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filtered vacuum. These HEPA vacuums are more efficient than a standard vacuum. This filter will help catch allergens such as pollen and pet dander. You should run your vacuum over your carpet at least twice to reduce these allergens.

Carpet Cleaning Reduces Dirt Intrusion

Vacuuming frequently will help improve your allergies and also prevent allergens into your home. Take other precautions as well. Have mats available outside of every door to your home to have visitors to wipe their feet off. If you can, remove your shoes when you get inside to avoid dirt other outside allergens getting around your home.

Carpet Cleaning Reduces Mold

Do not allow carpets to stay wet for more than a day. This can cause mildew and mold to grow underneath your carpet, causing your allergies to flare up. Immediately after spilling, dry the area by blotting, so you aren’t spreading the spill further. This will also stop the humidity from getting through to the carpet padding, causing even more damage and mildew. If unable to restrain the moisture, be sure to call in a professional.

Carpet Cleaning Reduces VOC’s

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a large group of chemicals found in a lot of products used to build and maintain homes. These VOCs are emitted by several products such as cleaning products, paints, and other heavy plastics. Regularly cleaning and maintaining your carpets will remove these VOCs from being trapped in the carpet fibers. Although these are gases, some cleaning chemicals or air fresheners can be sprayed onto your carpet. While some people have allergies from particles such as pollen or dust mites, some can get flare-ups with mold and other allergens. While you try to keep your home and carpets cleaned, it’s best to hire a professional, reliable carpet cleaning service and certified carpet cleaner to ensure your home and carpet are fresh, clean and allergy-free.
