 If you or a family member suffers from allergies, then you are likely well aware of the connection between carpet and allergy flares. Although the truth is that most carpets are hypo-allergenic, there are still materials that find themselves sticking to carpet fibers, which definitely cause allergy sufferers discomfort. If you love your carpet, and the allergy sufferer in your home, you may be wondering what some of the best options are for ensuring your carpet stays as clean as possible for them. Cleanpro Elite in Palm Desert would like to assist you with that today by providing a few tips as to how to get rid of the most common allergens.

For the more common allergens, such as pet hair, dander, dust and dirt, there are a few simple methods to help rid your home of these:
  • Start by vacuuming your carpet and upholstered furniture often-it also helps, if possible, to do this while the allergy sufferer is not home, so as to avoid exposure to the particles that are in the air
  • It’s also helpful if you choose not to use window units in your home-from window fans to air conditioners, they can pull in the air, and dirt, from outside

Now to the more aggressive of carpet allergens, such as dust mites or mold:
  • Unfortunately, if you’ve got mold in your carpet there isn’t much of an option-if you can narrow down the mold to a certain area, then you have the option of patching that area, however if the mold is widespread you’re going to need to consider replacing the entire carpet
  • Both mold and dust mites are attracted to humid areas
  • - With that in mind, you should attempt to keep your home under 50% humidity at all times
  • - If you find that your home in naturally more humid than that, consider investing in a dehumidifier for those rooms with carpet
  • Remember that it is actually the feces of dust mites which causes the allergy, however the only way to rid your home forever of the feces is to rid your home of the dust mites
  • This will not be done with regular vacuuming and honestly requires a professional clean, using heat or steam
Whether you’ve got an older carpet or you are just getting one installed, remember that a professional clean is going to be the best bet if you’ve found that your home has dust mites or other carpet allergens.
