The Benefits of Carpet Cleaning for Those with Allergies

Whether you have mild or severe allergies, your home can affect how your symptoms are controlled or flare-up. The soft surfaces throughout your home can be a platform for the gathering and collection of allergens that stay around and cause your sneezing and coughing. Some of the most common indoor allergens – pollen, pet dander, mold and dust mites – can be controlled through regular cleaning.

Unfortunately, microscopic allergens can really wreak havoc on your daily life if you have allergies. These tiny terrors settle into carpets, upholstered furniture and curtains. The debate on hard surface floors vs. soft floor surfaces is unclear. While some allergy sufferers feel that it is a benefit to have hard surfaces as their floors, it has been seen in research that carpet can trap allergens, so that they are not floating around in the air. Since they are trapped, they can be more easily removed with a regular cleaning schedule.

Stay on Top of Removing Allergens

Vacuuming is essential to clearing microscopic allergens away. It can be a real benefit to vacuum more than once a week, especially during your particular allergy season. While you may want to invest in a HEPA vacuum filter system, remember that allergens, such as pet hair and dust mites, are larger than the minimal size of particles that a HEPA vacuum cleaner is designed to grab. It is optimal to focus on regularly scheduled vacuuming strategies instead.

Deep carpet cleaning through a professional service is vital for those with allergies to keep their home clean and as allergy-free as possible. While the rental carpet cleaning machines do a decent job, they are not ideal for homes with allergy sufferers, especially if your allergy is to mold. The extraction strength of these do-it-yourselfers are not as strong as the equipment professionals bring out to your home. If water is left behind in carpet fibers, it can exacerbate any mold issues in your home and spur an allergic reaction.
