Does carpet cleaning help allergies and asthma?

ACR Carpet Cleaning

There are many health benefits to carpet cleaning. A healthy home environment is important to all of us, especially those that suffer from allergies and asthma.

Did you know that your carpets act as the biggest filter in your home? You change your air filters regularly, so why wouldn’t you do the same with your carpet? Getting on a regular schedule every 6 months to get your carpets professionally cleaned can help to eliminate dust, allergens, dust mites and other allergy and asthma causing symptoms. The high water temperatures that a truck mounted unit provides, safely removes any of these particles from your carpets. I know that from living in Arizona (hello dust!), regular carpet cleanings have been so beneficial in helping with my allergies.

There are something’s that you can do as well to help. Vacuuming your carpets weekly with a vacuum that has a hepa filter will eliminate 99.7% of small particles. Wow!

In other areas of your house you should be cleaning pillows and sheets weekly in hot water (130 degrees), running exhaust fans in bathrooms after showers to help prevent any mold growth (this removes the moisture out of the air), running your exhaust fan in the kitchen when cooking, and did I mention the benefits to vacuuming weekly?

The Mayo Clinic has backed up steam cleaning and the health benefits. They released a study, of the benefits of steam cleaning carpets on a regular basis has been proven to help reduce the presence of dust mites and other allergens in homes.

Having the carpet removed from your home is not necessary for allergy and asthma sufferers, what is needed is regular professional carpet cleanings.
