How Carpet Cleaning Reduces Asthma and Allergies

Asthma is a breathing condition that affects millions of children and adults around the world. Deaths resulting from asthma number more than a quarter of a million per year. This dangerous condition and other allergic reactions in children and adults can be controlled by the careful and professional cleaning of houses, businesses, and schools.

As doctors examine the correlations of drugs, allergens, and airborne particulates, parents of children with asthma must make their children’s environment as free from irritants as possible.

The elimination of dust, dirt, airborne substances, and, especially, mold must be undertaken to prevent asthma attacks and allergic reactions. The home can be a habitat for particles that bring on an asthmatic attack or an allergic reaction. Bleach and vinegar should be used on the walls to remove the presence of any and all types of mold and mildew. Heating vents should be, scrupulously, vacuumed using vacuums with HEPA-grade filters to remove any and all irritants. And, finally, and most importantly all carpets in the house should be professionally cleaned. It does no good to vacuum rugs with household vacuums. They only begin to clean the rug of dirt, dust, mites, and allergens, and this vacuuming only moves the dirt from one area to another. Dusting with a feather duster is useless. It, like vacuuming rugs, only moves the irritants from one surface to another, and if that surface is the carpet, it will be at home and thrive in that protected environment.

Of the three areas where children and adults congregate, the home, school, and businesses. Only one place has that refuge for the unwanted and unwelcome; the carpeting in the home.

Many people attempt to use pressure cleaning, rug shampooing, and rental systems to solve this great problem but the cleaning is not complete, and the moisture remaining in the carpet and pad creates the perfect environment for the most dangerous of asthma and allergy irritants, mold, and mildew.

First, clean your home thoroughly. Start with the ceilings and work your way down. Pay special attention to hard-to-get-at areas, they are spots where mold can proliferate and wreak havoc on asthma sufferers. When your home is as clean as possible, call the carpet cleaning professionals. Let them know that you want a thorough, antiseptic, cleaning to prevent asthma and allergy attacks. These professional carpet cleaners will remove a veritable cesspool of dust, dirt, mold, mites, and spores. Leaving your home fresh, with completely clean carpets, and protected against asthma or allergy attacks.
