Allergy sufferers often assume that carpet is bad for their allergies. You might be surprised to learn, however, that (according to multiple studies) the opposite is true: Carpet helps reduce allergy triggers.
How? Well, carpet acts as a filter - it traps allergens and keeps them from hanging around in the air you breathe inside your home. Trapped allergens, like dust, pollen and pet dander are then easily removed by proper cleaning.
Limiting tracked in dirt, vacuuming and regular professional deep cleanings are enough to reduce and remove allergens from your home and improve your air quality.
Remember that having your upholstered furniture, blinds, and draperies professionally cleaned regularly is also crucial to the elimination of microscopic allergens. The benefits of regular carpet and upholstery cleaning far outweigh the cost to your health.
