Seasonal allergies affect people differently, and specific areas of the home can make allergy symptoms worse as the season progresses. Other indoor pollutants can cause allergy problems for some people, including everything from hairspray to household cleaners, to painting or home remodeling products.

Indoor air quality is considered by some to be worse than the outdoor pollution, because of the number of pollutants concentrated in a small area of your home. Consider the type of flooring in your home and the amount of pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, mildew, and other irritants that are lurking deep within your carpet. Each of these can cause an allergy flare-up; but if they are already in your carpeting, how do you get rid of them?

A regular schedule of vacuuming the carpet can certainly help; however, a proactive maintenance schedule of carpet cleaning can reduce the allergens that are present throughout the entire home. While do-it-yourself carpet cleaning machines are popular to use, if the entire process is not done correctly, and if the drying methods are less-than ideal, you could be adding more pollutants to your carpeting and increasing the growth of mold and mildew.

There are different types of professional carpet cleaning, and not all are effective at reducing allergens and eliminating the pollutants found in your carpeting. Rely on a residential carpet cleaning service that specializes in taking care of pollutants to provide your home with a thorough cleaning.
