“I used to wake up at 4 a.m. and start sneezing, sometimes for 5 hours.  I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness.”  – Raymond Chandler, American Writer, 1888-1959

clean for allergyI bet this quote may be very similar to how you feel.  It sometimes feels like we’re allergic to simply being awake.  With springtime upon us, it’s a good time to begin thinking about a few things.

According to The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 1 in 4 Americans suffer from allergies or asthma.   Wow!  That’s a lot of Americans!!!

According to WebMD, we spend 90% of our time indoors.  And our indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air, depending on factors such as if the residents smoke.

“Many people think that carpets and allergies are a bad combination.  Even some allergists will encourage their patients to remove carpeting in favor of hardwood or tile floors.  However, carpets can actually help to reduce the allergens in your home by trapping them, as long as they are properly cleaned on a regular schedule.”    – www.allergyrelief101.com

Carpets trap indoor allergens like dust mites, mold, mildew, fungus, pollen, pet dander and other pollutants and allergens but when that trap gets full, a professional steam cleaning is needed to remove those allergens from your carpet and your home.  What’s the result?  Relief from allergy symptoms related to those substances.

I often hear how much better my clients feel after they get their carpets cleaned.  Prevention can be the best medicine!  Clean carpets can lead to clean indoor air which most likely will result in relief!  Call us today to get your carpets cleaned!!!
