 Your carpet is an often overlooked luxury in your home. We may not appreciate it nearly as we should, until there is something the matter with it, like mold or perhaps a large stain. Surely we have preventative measures to try to keep stains from our carpet, but accidents do happen, which is why you should check out our suggestions on removing urine from carpet. When you or a family member suffer from allergies, however, you may notice the carpet a lot more. Although carpet is typically hypoallergenic, there are certain elements which you will often find in carpet, that can cause allergies. Portland Cleanpro would like to help you today, if you or a loved one suffers from carpet related allergies, to learn a bit more about what the most common ones are, as well as how you can remove them with relative ease.

Common Allergens such as dust, dirt and pet hair, will inevitably make their way to your carpet, and from there they can surely cause annoyance to the allergy sufferers among you. If you’ve got these common allergens in your home, here are some easy ways you can get rid of them:

  • Start by vacuuming regularly-we realize this is a simple suggestion, but really the front line way to fight allergens as vacuuming regularly will pick up most of the dirt, dust and pet hair in your home
  • Don’t neglect your upholstery when vacuuming-using the attachments for furniture will help you to remove any hidden allergens from the cushions and crevices in your furniture
  • Avoid the use of window units, be they fans or an air conditioning unit-window units bring in dust and dirt from outside, which can wreak havoc on allergies
More serious allergens, such as dust mites or mold are going to be more difficult to deal with-here are a few tips to remember:

  • Both dust mites and mold are attracted to or products of humidity
  • To attempt to avoid these pests, try to keep your home below 50% humidity at all times
  • If your home is naturally humid, we suggest a dehumidifier
  • When it comes to dust mites, it is their feces that actually causes the allergy, but of course you’ve got to get rid of the dust mites to get rid of the feces
  • Neither dust mites or mold is going to be removed by a simple dry vac, liquid and steam are needed for their proper removal
  • That being said, other than renting a wet vac on your own, it is best if you hire a professional service-that’s where Cleanpro comes in
