Hidden Hazards: The Surprising Allergens Lurking in Your Home

Unveiling all the hidden allergens in your home

Springtime brings warmth, sunshine, and blooming flowers, but for many people, it also brings allergies. Allergens such as pollen, dust, and pet dander can accumulate inside your home in visible and invisible locations. Everyone sees the buildup appear on solid surfaces, but one of the areas most neglected… your carpet! All the allergens in your home are accumulating and hiding out in your carpets too. Regular carpet cleaning can help reduce allergens in your home and keep your family healthy.

Pollen is a common allergen that affects many people during the spring season. According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, pollen counts are highest in the morning, and on warm and windy days. Pollen can easily find its way into your home by clinging to your clothes or hair, or through open windows and doors. Once inside, it can settle on carpets, rugs, upholstery and floors, even in mattresses, making it difficult to avoid.

Regular carpet, mattress, upholstery, and floor cleaning can help reduce the amount of pollen in your home. The team at Cape Fear Cleaning Solutions are all trained to remove the allergens from your floors and from your home. Our unique cleaning process removes the dirt, debris, staining and dust from your carpets and leaves it dry almost immediately to prevent additional bacteria growth from warm temperatures, and wet carpets or carpet pads.

The other benefits of carpet and upholstery cleaning in the spring are that it will kill dust mites, mold spores, and bacteria, reducing the number of allergens in your home. It is recommended to have carpets professionally cleaned once or twice a year to maintain their cleanliness and prolong their lifespan.

Regular carpet, mattress, upholstery and floor cleaning also helps prevent the accumulation of dust, pet dander, and other allergens. Dust can accumulate quickly in your home, especially in areas that are frequently used, such as living rooms and bedrooms.
