The recent studies done by professionals and the EPA confirm what asthma and allergy sufferers have been saying for years. Having carpet in your home simply exacerbates the symptoms making many allergy and asthma sufferers feel even worse. But wait!? Is it the carpet? Or could it be the CLEANLINESS of the carpet?
Ask your mom, your neighbor, and even be sure to include that Type A friend you have and take a poll on how often they a) vacuum their carpet and b) have their carpets cleaned. Most people will answer with, “once per week.” Honestly, this really means once per month for most people (except that Type A friend). The answer to question b) is generally once or twice per year, yet more than 1/3 of the population thinks they can clean their carpet by themselves! Yes, you can absolutely clean your carpet yourself. But, the question is, is it the healthy way?
Kaufman’s Carpet Clean, Inc. recommends that all carpet should be vacuumed at least once per week…no excuses. For best results, use a vacuum with a HEPA filter as it will remove any dust mites and prevent them from reentering through the air. Carpets should also be professionally cleaned at least twice per year (more if you have small children or health conditions). Think about your carpet as a great big filter that collects all of the dust, dander and pollen that circulates through your house. Keep it clean and you will most certainly breath easier.
