It seems to happen every year like clockwork—the pollen comes out and coats the cars and streets. And then a day or two later comes the sniffling noses, sinus headaches, and breathing problems.
If your child has allergies, this can be particularly aggravating. But one of the best things you can do to help you and your family with allergies is to make sure that you clean your home and carpets regularly.
You Must Get the Allergens Where They Hang Out
One of the biggest causes of allergies is the level of dust and other allergens in your home. One way to prevent this is with regular dusting. However, this is just going to place the dust into the air to eventually settle into the carpet where it will become trapped.
In order to prevent this, vacuum carpeting at least twice a week. Make sure that you use a vacuum with filters that help get all of the allergens, removing it from the carpet.
Vacuum Regularly to Reduce Allergens in Your Home
Another way to cut down on allergens is with the type of carpeting you use. Deep carpets with a thick shag to them may feel great to the feet, but they have a tendency to trap more dust than a short-pile carpet will. If you can replace your carpets, choose one that is coated in fluorocarbon. This can help make the cleaning process easier.
Choose Your Carpet Wisely
Another option is to get a professional steam cleaning done at regular intervals. At least once or twice a year is necessary, but every quarter would be ideal. By doing this, the cleaners can get down deep into the fibers of your carpeting to remove any built-up accumulations of dirt, dust, and other allergens.
Get Regular Steam Cleaning for Your Carpet
Finally, we also encourage you to keep the dirt and pollen from getting tracked into your home in the first place. You should consider having an area either outside the front door or right inside for shoes so they don’t traipse through the house spreading allergens. Also, put a heavy duty floormat at the entrance to your home so that visitors can wipe off their feet and get rid of the allergens before they enter.
Taking care of your children and their allergies is one of your top concerns. By being proactive and taking steps to keep your carpets clean, you are eliminating the allergens and keeping your family healthy.
