How Regular Carpet Cleaning Can Reduce Illness

Carpet Cleaning

Hudson, NH Homeowner Seeks Relief for Allergy Symptoms

Carpeting, while wonderful for comfort underfoot, can gather dust, dirt, pet dander and other contaminants.  This can become a big problem for those with allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems.  Regularly cleaning the carpet, through vacuuming and professional cleaning, can help to prevent the contaminants from settling into the carpet.

A homeowner in Hudson, NH was experiencing allergy symptoms when at home.  Trying to identify the cause of the problem, she turned her attention to the home’s shag carpeting.

Dirt and Dust Can Settle into Carpet Fibers

Known allergens, including dirt, dust and pet dander, are circulating through your home’s air.  Many of these contaminants can settle on your carpet fibers.  This can quickly lead to symptoms ranging from sneezing and itchy eyes to a runny nose and more serious respiratory complaints for those living in the home.  This is particularly true for thick, plush carpeting, where the contaminants can settle into the carpet fibers. 

Regular Vacuuming Removes Dirt and Dust Particles That Have Settled into the Carpet

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to remove all of the carpeting in your home.  The best way to keep your carpets dirt and dust free, is by regularly vacuuming the floor.  This will remove the particles before they have had a chance to settle into the carpet fibers.  Vacuuming the home weekly, and more frequently for high traffic areas, can make a big difference.

In addition, scheduling a professional carpet cleaning once or twice a year can go a long way to removing the contaminants that have penetrated the carpet fibers.  Showing your carpet some TLC can make sure that your family members feel great.

The homeowner in Hudson scheduled a professional carpet cleaning and has put her family on regular vacuuming duty.  She is already seeing relief from her allergy symptoms.
