If you or a family member has allergies, then you’re surely aware of the suspicion that carpet can cause said allergies. The truth is that though carpet does not cause allergies, there are allergens that can attach themselves to carpet quite easily. The best way to take care of this problem is by understanding what those allergens are and how to get rid of them. It is with this in mind that Valley Cleanpro in Phoenix is writing this blog today, providing you with tips to rid your home of common carpet related allergens. 

For the most common allergens you’ll find that basic cleaning will do the trick. In order to rid your home of dust, pollen, and animal fur, try the following: 
  • Avoid using window fans that will invite dust from outside, inside
  • Of course, you should be vacuuming your home regularly, with a HEPA quality filter if possible
  • You can also help conquer the spread of dust in your home by vacuuming your upholstery regularly and dusting the wooden surfaces in your home

For the more serious allergens, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about dust mites: 
  • Unfortunately these are an all year allergy
  • Dust mites are not the problem technically, but their stool-however in order to eliminate the feces of dust mites, of course you need to eliminate the dust mites as well
  • Like many other common household pests, dust mites are attracted to humidity
  • You can help keep them from your home by trying to ensure your home stays below 50% humidity
  • Know that you’ll need to use steam cleaning in order to rid your home of a dust mite problem, as dry vacuums are not going to pick them up
  • That being said, investing in a professional carpet cleaning every 3 to 6 months, if someone in your home suffers from allergies, is recommended
