Allergy season is here and in full swing once again. If you have already started experiencing allergy symptoms after getting home from work, you might be allergic to some of the little critters living inside your carpet. This could be anything from mold spores, dust, dust mites, pollens, and proteins. It’s not uncommon, and millions of people suffer from this same dilemma.
Most of the allergens commonly found in carpeting are made of proteins that basically annoy you. You might suffer from sneezing, become congested, or possibly begin to wheeze and show signs of asthma attacks. You can think of your home carpeting as one big allergy magnet. All of the allergens floating in the air get collected in it and stay there until they are forced out.
Many peoples first response to spring and summer allergy symptoms is to do some house cleaning. This normally involves a lot of dusting and vacuuming. If you don’t remember what happened when you did this last summer or the year before, you started feeling even more miserable. The reason is because simply dusting and vacuuming only spreads the allergens around and kicks them up into the air.
The first solution is to simply remove the carpeting from your home, which you probably don’t want to do. If that isn’t an option, you can installing an air purifier in your home; these can either installed throughout your entire house with the heating and cooling system, or you can go with a room sized unit – which is a more economical solution. You might also want to invest in a good vacuum that allows using a HEPA filter. Finally, you will want to have a professional carpet cleaning service come in and do a thorough cleaning. If you suffer severely from allergies, it might be in your best interest to have the carpet removed. However, if you decide to keep it you might want to routinely having a cleaning service come in and get rid of all those nasty allergens.
