Combat Indoor Allergens with a Professional Carpet Cleaning - Escarosa
Carpets are virtual magnets for dust mites, pet dander, mold and other indoor allergens. With the arrival of spring weather, many Florida residents are beginning to suffer the effects of these aggravating particles. Using a household vacuum is not enough to remove all indoor allergens from your home. Instead, schedule regular professional carpet cleanings to reduce the suffering associated with allergies.
Spring allergies are typically induced by the high levels of pollen from trees, grass and weeds as the weather warms. For sensitive individuals, it may seem easier to stay indoors until pollen counts decrease. While staying inside may alleviate some of the irritating symptoms, many people still suffer from allergies as our indoor spaces collect and concentrate allergens.
Allergens Trapped in Your Carpet
Common indoor allergens are found hiding deep within the fibers of your carpet, even after vacuuming! This can be especially worrisome for homes with small children, as they are typically more sensitive to these substances.
Although pollen is produced mainly by outdoor trees, grasses and plants, we constantly bring the tiny particles indoors through our clothing and shoes. Additionally, every time we open our windows and doors we let pollen enter our homes. Soft surfaces like carpeting and furniture tend to trap these allergens. This allows them to build up to levels where they trigger allergic reactions.
Dust mites are the most common cause of year-round allergies in people. These tiny mites thrive in the warm and comfortable environments in our home, especially in mattresses, upholstered furniture and carpeting. Notoriously dust mites are difficult to eradicate, and studies show up to 95% of existing dust mites remain after using a household vacuum.
Pet Hair and Dander
We all love our pets, but did you know that pet hair traps dust, flea dirt and pollen? When our beloved companions shed, these allergens collect in carpeting and quickly build up to irritating levels. Simply walking around on your carpet pushes the particles deeper into the carpet, making it harder to remove indoor allergens without professional equipment.
High humidity, liquid spills that are not cleaned up correctly and a buildup of organic materials easily promote the growth of mold indoors. It is very important to tackle this issue head-on if you suspect mold is gaining a foothold in your home. Reactions to mold spores range in severity from simple irritation to serious illness. So watch out for signs of this indoor allergen including off-color spots and musty smells.
