CAN CARPET CLEANING HELP MY ALLERGIES?
If you or a loved one in your home suffer from allergies, you may have very specific concerns when it comes to having your carpets, rugs, or upholstered furniture professionally cleaned. Note three main areas of concern that you may have:
First, one concern that you may have is that someone may be allergic to pets. Did you know that it’s not the dog’s hair or fur that’s the real problem here? Rather, many people are usually allergic to the dander (“dander” referring to flakes of dead skin), as well as the saliva or urine from the pet. So, no matter how long or short the pet’s hair is, any dog or cat can potentially cause an allergic reaction. There are some dog breeds that seem to cause less problems with allergies; in addition, cat allergies seem to be more common than dog allergies. You may be looking for a carpet and upholstery cleaning service that can reduce allergic reactions in your home. Even though allergic, you may still have that special dog or cat; you just couldn’t resist them when you saw them at the pet store! We can help keep these issues minimized.
Second, another cause for concern is an allergy to dust mites. More specifically, it’s the dust mites’ droppings that cause an allergic reaction in many people. This is primarily in areas of close contact with furnishings- perhaps in a favorite sofa, a spot on the carpet where a child may frequently play, or in your mattresses and pillows. Dust mites feed on dead skin cells, so areas where skin cells are abundant (sofas, beds, etc.) are areas where you may have more of an issue with allergies.
Third, yet one more cause for concern is being allergic or sensitive to harsh cleaning chemicals. Products that contain bleach, solvents, or strong acids may certainly cause an issue with sensitive allergic reactions. A “strong” chemical in itself may be an issue; however, in addition, the perfumes may also pose a problem to the affected individual. Perhaps you have noticed that you may have a problem shopping in certain department stores that like to spray a strong perfume or cologne into the air. Therefore, not only skin contact with certain products can cause a problem, but the odors from these products can, as well.
