Those with seasonal allergies or asthma know how dangerous it can feel to go outside during certain times of the year. However, what many people don’t think about is how you can bring those same dangers back home with you.
Carpets trap in a lot of what we bring indoors, including embedded dirt, contaminants, and allergens. So, if or someone you live with struggles with seasonal allergies or asthma, having your carpet cleaned by professionals can not only breathe some new life into your home, but simply just help you breathe.
Treating your home to a cleaning from Quam’s Carpet Cleaning won’t just help your carpets. We can also do away with potentially harmful allergens by doing a deep clean of your upholstery, drapes, and rugs, as well.
Common household allergens
If you’re someone who knows what allergens cause you to flare up the most, knowing what you might be dealing with at home is a great way to determine if bringing in professionals can help. Some of the most common allergens found in homes are dust mites, pet dander and mold.
Dust mites thrive indoors and in moisture, especially in bedding, mattresses, and carpet. The mites absorb into the moisture to survive. Allergens produced by house dust mites are among the most common triggers of asthma. Some more common symptoms of house dust mite allergies are itchiness, watery and red eyes, having a runny nose, sneezing, inflamed or infected skin and clogging in the lungs.
Pet dander is microscopic flecks of skin that come from cats, dogs and other animals with fur or feathers. Dander can circulate in the air much longer than most other allergens, meaning it can be transferred in and out of places quite easily. Some allergic reactions to pet dander involved respiratory issues, like prolonged coughing, and trouble breathing.
Mold is a common fungus often found in damp, poorly ventilated and dark areas of a home. It is a component of household dust, or sometimes spoiled food or spilled liquids.
Regular maintenance to limit allergens in your home
Typically, you’ll want your carpet deep cleaned once, or maybe twice, per year. For people more prone to asthma or deal with allergies, you might have to have your carpets professionally cleaned three or four times a year.
Just because you’re going to have your carpets deep cleaned a few times a year doesn’t take you off the hook from vacuuming, unfortunately. Vacuuming your carpets at least once a week can remove particles from your harm that can reduce those allergens. For more high-traffic areas, you probably want to vacuum even more than that, if you have the time.
