Eliminate Allergens with Professional Carpet Cleaning
Did you know a scientific study found carpet cleaning reduced allergens by 97 percent? Dust mites decreased by 91 percent, cat dander by 95 percent and dog allergens by 97 percent, reported Airmed Healthgroup at a recent American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology annual meeting.
If you are one of the estimated 40 million Americans who suffer from indoor allergies or one of the 25 million people with asthma, do yourself a favor and begin having your carpets, rugs and upholstery cleaned every three to four months. The American Lung Association reports that regular professional cleanings top taking medications to relieve indoor allergy symptoms.
Nearly every allergen builds up in your carpet, including dust mites, pollen and pet dander. Eventually, your carpet fills to the brim. Merely walking across it kicks them back into the air. A short, tight weave carpet repels allergens and cleans easier than a carpet with long, loose fibers.
Dust Mites Wreak Havoc on Allergy Sufferers
Thousands of irritants can trigger your allergies or asthma. However, researchers point to dust mite feces as the biggest culprit. They estimate this allergen causes 80 percent of problems.
These nasty, microscopic critters — 7,000 can fit on a single finger nail — take refuge in your home. About 200 million infest the rooms in your house at any one time. Each dust mite drops about 40 pieces of feces a day and research reveals the protein it contains launch most allergy and asthma attacks that people suffer.
Walking on your carpet stirs the dust mite feces into the air. The feces ends up in your eyes, nose, and even your lungs.
Other Ways to Help Eliminate Allergens
While a professional carpet cleaning has proven to be most effective, some other steps exist to allergy-proof your home.
Windows. Close your windows and rely on air conditioning during pollen season.
Vacuum. Vacuum thoroughly once or twice a week with a model that possesses a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter traps particles as tiny as 0.3 microns, which picks up most allergens.
Filters. Clean or replace the filters in your heating and cooling system frequently.
Plants. Find a new home for your potted plants or spread aquarium gravel over the dirt to help contain mold.
