Many people believe that carpet flooring is a source of many allergies. However, carpets can actually provide a warm and aesthetic look to any room, if they are cleaned regularly and maintained properly. Carpets can be a host to various dust mites, pollen, mold, mildew etc. If these pathogens are not removed, they can trigger serious allergies and even act as a source of new diseases. It is important that you clean your carpets on a regular basis to avoid health concerns such as shortness of breath, coughing, sneezing, runny nose etc. With proper maintenance, you can use your carpets safely, without the fear of any allergy or infection.
Here are some carpet cleaning tips to avoid allergies:
- Get Thorough Vacuuming: Most problems associated with the carpets are due to poor upkeep. Vacuuming the carpet, three to four times a week can remove the allergens, even from the deepest layers. You should vacuum your carpets with a machine having a HEPA filter. This is a mechanical air filter that can easily trap most of the microorganisms from the carpets. It will ensure that the dust particles are not circulated back into the air.
- Use Doormats: To prevent the entry of dust to your home you can consider placing a doormat. It will help to improve the indoor air quality of your home and prevent the allergens from contaminating your carpet.
- Remove Stains: Left over food or drinks on the carpet can lead to the growth of bacteria in its fibers. These may not only cause health concerns but also leave a stain on the carpet. Invisible stains on your carpet will lead to foul odor, which is a sign of bacterial growth. Thus, you must remove and clean any spills on the carpet, immediately, to prevent allergies.
- Control Humidity: Mold growth in carpets is mainly caused due to excessive moisture and warmth. Humidity, poor ventilation and lack of sunlight can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. Thus, it is advisable to control the humidity levels in the room to eradicate the growth of allergy causing mold and infections.
