When you think of your health and well-being, you might not automatically think about upholstery and carpet cleaning. But maybe you should, especially if you or a member of your family suffers from seasonal allergies. Here’s how professional cleaning can help to keep you healthier this spring.
Spring is the season for allergies for most people. It’s the pollen, folks. All of those blooming flowers, trees, and plants release a lot of pollen into the air causing irritations, such as stuffy nose, itchy eyes, nasal and sinus irritation, and even asthma symptoms.
Carpets can trap some of the allergens that might otherwise become airborne and filtered through your HVAC system or air filtration system. In addition to pollen, carpets can hold onto dust, pet hair, and pet dander. As they accumulate, they can start to affect those who suffer from allergies.
In addition to regular vacuuming, the best way to reduce allergies in your home is with regular professional carpet cleaning. This is especially important in the spring when the most common allergies occur.
Deep cleaning your carpets not only removes the surface dirt and pollutants, but it also gets deep down in the fibers to remove the lingering dust, dirt, and debris that can cause irritation and allergy symptoms to flare-up.
In order to help prevent or reduce allergies this spring, it’s important to keep your house as clean as possible. The pollen that comes into your home as you come and go gets trapped in the carpet and continues to irritate allergy sufferers long after they’ve come indoors.
Cleaning your carpets in the spring should definitely be on your to-do list, especially if you or anyone in your family suffers from seasonal allergies. To make an appointment with Whitehall Carpet Cleaners for upholstery and carpet cleaning, call them at 803-732-3200 today.
