An estimated 40 million Americans suffer from indoor allergies, while 25 million Americans have asthma. There’s good news if you love your carpets! Recent studies show that you do not have to remove carpeting to control your allergy symptoms—just keep the carpets properly and effectively cleaned.
Allergens are always moving around in the air you breathe. Soft surfaces like carpets, rugs and upholstery actually act as giant filters and trap allergens. This keeps them out of the air you and your family breathe. Like air filters, though, carpets can become full over time and must be properly cleaned to be effective at trapping particulates as they settle from the air.
You can ensure healthier indoor air in your home by keeping your carpets clean and in good condition through regular vacuuming and having your carpets, rugs and upholstery professionally cleaned every 3 – 4 months to clean out the trapped allergens.
