Are your allergies acting up?
This allergy season seems particularly bad, but there are many things you can do about it.
One of the biggest steps you can take to feel better this allergy season is to get the allergens out of your carpet and floors.
Cleaning your carpet is not something that is just for aesthetic benefit. Having a carpet free of dirt, dander, and allergens makes your home a healthier place. This is especially true for homes with pets. The dander and allergens that our furry friends carry can be especially brutal from January through April. Florida has a strong allergy season, and this year has been one of the worst in recent memory. For those of you with pets, don’t just clean your carpet, your pets need regular baths also. Even though they seem clean and smell fresh, both dogs and cats lick themselves, keeping the stuff that makes you sniffle in their fur and on their skin. Then they lay on your carpet and roll around being cute, leaving behind dander in your carpets, and making your runny nose worse for months. This is the time of year that vacuuming just when you think the carpet is looking dirty, isn’t enough. Keep up with those chores and keep your family healthy.
Even beyond the typical build up that can cause allergic reactions, the dust that builds up in your carpet can house parasites and even hazards that can cause bacterial and viral hazards. Make sure you clean your carpets regularly to maintain a healthy environment for you and your family. If you have not had your carpets professionally cleaned this allergy season, it is the perfect time of year to get a fresh clean start to a healthier home.
