This is a great article presented to us from The Carpet and Rug Institute. We know that proper carpet cleaning on a regular basis with safe cleaning products will go a long way to help with asthma and allergies in a home or business. This is only a study, but we have heard of studies like this being done in other countries with similar results. This makes sense to me since the carpet is made out of a fabric. And is able to trap much more dust than a wood or tile floor.
Best ways to keep allergies low in your home
The best way to keep the dust and allergies down in your home would be to use a hepa filtered vacuum. Use this to clean on a regular basis. When a customer that we are cleaning for mentions asthma or someone having allergies in the home, we do some things different to ensure we are helping as much as possible.
Green product in your home
We always use green cleaning and rinsing products. But when we are cleaning for someone with asthma it is more important to get the carpet heated up as much as possible. This is done during the cleaning and will help to speed the dry time up. And it will help to remove as much allergens as possible. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns about this or if we can help.
