If your allergies are bothering you this summer, the culprit could be allergens from within your home. Keep reading to learn more about the allergens lingering on your carpets and inside your air ducts.
Skin cells naturally die and slough off; according to Discovery Fit & Health, you will shed almost one million skin cells in a day! These dead skin particles become dust and rest upon your carpets and rugs. Despite dusting your home or vacuuming your carpeting, your skin replenishes this dust supply. Remove the dust allergens in your home by having your carpets and rugs professionally cleaned.
If you have dogs or cats at home, the fur and dead skin cells from your pets are also contributing to your home’s allergens. Pet dander may even be dangerous if you have friends and family members with pet allergies. Professional air duct and carpet cleanings will ensure that your pet’s dander is removed from your home before your guests arrive. Even if your pet is considered hypo-allergenic, your home requires professional cleaning to reduce dander.
Dust mites are microscopic organisms that roam the surfaces of your home. Dust mites are not dangerous but can cause severe allergy symptoms. Dust mite droppings can cause you or your family members to experience persistent sneezing and runny noses. Prevent a dust mite infestation from affecting your home by conducting regular carpet cleanings. Regular air duct cleanings also reduce dust particles and other substances that dust mites thrive on.
While pollen is an essential element of the plant reproductive process, it’s the most common cause of allergy symptoms. When pollen counts are high, your children and pets may track this allergen into your home to reside on your carpeting and rugs. If you’ve noticed your allergy symptoms becoming increasingly worse, schedule a professional carpet cleaning to remove pollen from your home.
