    Your carpets aren’t the safe haven you thought they were.

    When was the last time you had your carpets cleaned? If you’re suffering from allergies, you need to read this. There are many ways dirty carpets could be making your allergies worse.

    Carpets are a petri dish of pollutants that can take a toll on your health, especially if you have sensitivities to certain allergens. Why? Because all the things that make your allergies flare up come into your home and settle in your carpet. It comes in on your shoes and clothes, through windows and doors, and on your pets and even on flowers from your garden. What is it? Let's take a look.

    1. Dust and dust mites
    2. Pet hair and pet dander
    3. Mold and mildew
    4. Bacteria
    5. Pollen
    6. Household chemicals from synthetic materials and cleaning products

    What do these things do to you? They can make you feel miserable! They can bring on dry and red eyes, an itchy and stuffy nose, irritated sinuses, respiratory issues up to and including asthma, headaches, fatigue, and everything else that goes with allergen sensitivity.

    What can you do about it? The best way to fight the allergens hiding in your carpets is to have them cleaned regularly. All the things that can take a toll on how you feel can hide deep down in the fibers of your carpet. You can vacuum until the cows come home, but you won't be able to really get rid of them without a professional cleaning.
