We are coming up on the spring season which means that there are going to be seasonal allergies galore. For those that suffer from seasonal allergy symptoms, you know how miserable it can be when you are in the thick of it. Most people will try everything in their power to get rid of them because of how miserable they are. One of the most effective ways to help with seasonal allergies in your home is to keep it as clean and pollen-free as possible. Carpet Care 2000 is here to talk about how carpet cleaning may be able to help.
Power of Dusting & Vacuuming
While this may seem redundant, you can reduce your allergies significantly when you are vacuuming and dusting your home on a regular basis. Make sure you have a good filter on your vacuum so that the dust isn’t being stirred up into the air you’re breathing. You also want to make sure you’re using a microfiber cloth to dust your surfaces as this will capture the dust much better than other types of cloth.
Cleaning Carpet Often Removes Allergens
There are many studies that show how many allergens settle into the carpet in your home. This can be to your benefit as long as you’re having them cleaned on a regular schedule. You will see that the fact that carpet traps these allergens, they aren’t being stirred up in the air like they are on other flooring surfaces. However, this means that you need to have your carpet professionally cleaned to really get rid of them in your home. You should be doing this at least two times a year if you suffer from severe allergies.
Change Out Dirty Air Filters
Another thing that can be done in your home to help you reduce the allergy symptoms that you usually have this time of year, is to replace the air filter in your HVAC system. That air filter will be collecting the pollen and other allergens floating around in your home. Replacing your current filter with a HEPA filter can be helpful. To take things one step further, you can also have your air ducts cleaned to remove any allergens that have collected in them.
DIY VS Professional Carpet Cleaning
There is a debate over whether or not you really need to call on professionals to clean your carpet to get the best results. It is important to remember that the pros have extraction equipment that you won’t be able to find on your own. This means that they will be able to remove far more allergens from your carpet than any DIY carpet cleaning machine will.
