Combating allergies through Carpet Dry Cleaning

Most people know that keeping their home clean is an essential step in avoiding allergens – particularly if you or one of your loved ones suffer from allergies. However, how you remove them matters, as inefficient cleaning will leave more dust and mould spores in the air.

A good place to start is to clean your carpets thoroughly. Regular vacuuming with a HEPA filter can help to remove the antigens that land on the surface of the carpet, but a truly deep clean calls for dry cleaning. There are a couple of reasons for this.

The Carpet Dry Cleaning Process Provides Thoroughness

The antigens that plague allergy sufferers ride in on people’s shoes, are blown in from open windows, or sneak in through ventilation shafts. Some of these allergens will then settle in your carpet, floor rugs, furniture and clinging to the fibres and waiting to be brought back up to the surface when people walk on it. 

Professional vacuum cleaning followed up with Carpet Dry Cleaning digs down deeper than normal vacuums to collect these allergens. Having this done once every year or so will prevent the build-up of dust, pet dander, and remove any mould spores.

Mould And Mite Prevention

People who suffer from mould and mite allergies particularly can benefit from dry cleaning their carpets, and upholstery. Mould will send out spores and start growing if it lands somewhere damp, and mites prefer to nestle somewhere that has moisture. However, it takes at least 24 hours for mould to start growing, so you want your carpet to be water-free fast.

The faster your carpet dries, the less chance these allergens have to grow. The dry cleaning method ensures that your carpet dries in an hour.
