Organic and Environmentally-Friendly Cleaning Methods That Reduce Allergens
Outside your home, it is almost impossible to avoid encountering allergens, since you have no control over determinants such as the pollen count, pet-fur shedding, or unpleasant/strong fumes (such as smoke and perfume).
Little wonder then that most people look to their home as a safe haven. Unfortunately, dust mites, pollen, molds and animal dander can easily become embedded in your carpet and upholstery, quickly becoming an allergy sufferer’s worst nightmare.
Certain health professionals have recommended that certain allergy or asthma patients should remove carpet from their home altogether. However, it has also been shown that a clean, dry, well-maintained carpet actually improves air quality, by trapping airborne particles that have been grounded through natural gravity.
Another reason for using carpet is that, when walking on hard surfaces in your home, you inadvertently disturb more allergens than on soft surfaces (i.e. carpet). Walking on a hard floor means that particles become airborne much faster and then enter your lungs, often triggering allergy symptoms.
