For those who suffer from allergies your only refuge is your home, but when your home isn’t safe from allergies, you may need to take action. When you suffer from indoor allergies it is time for some deep cleaning. There are some areas of the home that greatly contributes to indoor allergies such as the carpets, upholstery, and even your mattresses. DM Carpet Cleaning will share how to combat indoor allergies.
Can Carpet Cleaning Help with Allergies?
Carpets have dense pile that can capture dust, pollen, and even mold can develop. Carpets can also house dust mites and other pests that can produce waste and shed skin flakes. As you can see, carpets can produce a lot of different types of allergens. To reduce indoor allergens you need to maintain clean carpets. As a homeowner you should vacuum your carpets weekly, if not more, to remove dirt and other allergens that can get trapped in the carpet. Along with regular vacuuming the carpets should be deep cleaned every three to six months. Each household will vary on how often the carpets should be deep cleaned. Deep cleaning ensures the carpets are clean. A deep cleaning can also treat carpets with mold and even pests.
How Do I Get Rid of Allergens in My Couch?
Indoor allergies can also be contributed by your home’s upholstery. We use our furniture every day. We watch TV, play games and even eat while sitting on our upholstery. As a result of using our upholstery, the upholstery is exposed to sweat as well as spills from drinks and food. The upholstery can also develop mold and breed bacteria that not only can cause allergies but also lead to skin irritations. To prevent indoor allergies you should keep your upholstery clean. Most upholstery benefits from weekly vacuuming. You can vacuum out the dirt and other particles that are inside the upholstery. Along with vacuuming the upholstery, the upholstery should be professionally cleaned. A professional cleaning can remove the stains and dirt in the upholstery. It can also treat mold and bacteria to ensure your upholstery is clean and healthy.
How Do You Clean a Mattress with Allergies?
Another source of indoor allergies, surprisingly, is your home’s mattresses. We spend 1/3 of our lives in our beds. Hot nights can produce sweat. Humans shed skin and hair constantly, exposing the bed to a number of different human wastes. Mattresses that are shared with pets are even worse. Sometimes our kids may wet the bed. Mattresses need to be professionally cleaned at least once a year, combined with routine cleaning. Homeowners should wash the bedding once a week and perform basic mattress cleaning once a month. Basic mattress cleaning includes vacuuming and rotating the mattress.
