Many allergy sufferers find themselves experiencing severe allergy symptoms when inside their own homes due to poor indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality can be the result of mold, fungus, mildew, dust, dust mites, chemicals or pollens that have been tracked in from the outdoors taking up residence in the home. One of the most likely places for these allergens to live is in carpets, where they can settle and become trapped.
Carpets and Allergies
Some people with extremely severe allergies or asthma may be encouraged by their doctors to remove any carpeting in the home because it is such a cause for concern due to its soft, absorbent nature. However, according to the E-Journal of Flooring Sciences, carpets that are cleaned and maintained properly are just as safe for allergy and asthma sufferers as no carpet at all.
Carpets in the homes of those who suffer from allergies have to be cleaned more than those in the homes of others.
Carpet cleaning can remove the allergens that irritate people with allergies and asthma. They can even prevent the development of allergies. For example, people who are exposed to moldy carpets for prolonged periods of time can develop allergies and become more sensitive to mold in their environment. By cleaning the carpet, this onset of allergies can be prevented.
Aside from the benefits for allergy and asthma sufferers, a thorough cleaning can help a carpet last longer, look beautiful longer and remove any odors that become trapped in it.
