Allergy season can be a real drag. You know, when all of a sudden your throat feels scratchy, your nose starts running, and you can't stop sneezing? It's not fun. And it's even less fun when you're trying to enjoy your time at home, but all you can think about is how miserable you are.
Well, we have some good news for you: there's a lot you can do to make your home more allergy-friendly. And the best part is, it doesn't have to be hard!
Keeping Your Home Allergy Free
For starters, make sure you keep your carpets and air ducts clean. Studies show that the average home in the United States collects 40 pounds of dust and contaminants each year. These contaminants; including dander, dust, pollen, and chemicals; are pulled into your carpet and into your HVAC system.
That's why it's so important to have your carpets cleaned regularly by a professional like Zerorez®. Not only will we clean your carpets deep down, but we will also help remove all the dirt, allergens, and germs.
If you get your air ducts cleaned at the same time, you'll be doing yourself a huge favor. Unhealthy air inside your home could be recirculating through dirty air ducts.
Carpet cleaning is one of the best ways to get rid of all the dirt, allergens, and germs in your home because your carpet really is one giant air filter. Your carpet acts as a passive air filter by trapping dust, germs, pollen, and other particles within its fibers. The amount of dust and other contaminants that carpet carries is unbelievable—and hard to see. When you don't see the dust and particles with your eyes, it can be easy to think that skipping your annual professional carpet cleaning service won't be a problem. Hopefully, after reading this article, you will realize the important relationship between carpet cleaning and your home's air quality.
Air Duct Cleaning
The quality of your home's air can also be improved via air duct cleaning. When air ducts are left alone for long periods of time without being serviced, TONS of dirt, dust and other gunk get trapped in your HVAC system. Air duct cleaning is essential to keeping your home free of allergens and other nasties that make you feel sick.
