A long standing debate concerning carpet is as to whether or not it causes allergies. The general consensus is that, though carpet does not typically cause allergies, it certainly can attract those things which do. That being said, today Denver Cleanpro would like to provide you with some common carpet allergens as well as a few tips as to how you can rid your carpet of them, being able to continue to enjoy it for years to come. 

General Allergens

Some allergens you’ll find in your carpet, will be easily removed with general cleaning. 
  • If you have pets in your home, know that pet dander and fur can cause allergies, and especially when they are left there on the carpet to blend in. For more help with this, check out how to keep carpet clean in pet friendly home. 
  • Likewise, for pollen, dust, and dirt, you’ll find that these general methods will work
           - Vacuum your carpet on a regular basis
           - Try not to use window fans that will pull dust and dirt in from outside
           - Like vacuuming your carpet, if you’ve got a lot of upholstered furnishings in your home, you should remember to vacuum or clean those regularly as well

Serious Allergens

Dust mites are one of the most serious carpet allergens, and they are the most difficult to rid your home of. While it’s not actually the dust mites, but instead their feces, that cause the problem, you’ll have to rid your home of the mites to completely rid your home of feces. Remember the following when dealing with dust mites in your home: 
  • They are attracted to humid areas, try to keep your home below 50% humidity at all times
  • Know that a dry vacuum is not going to successfully rid your home of dust mites
  • You should invest in a wet vac or trust the professionals at Denver CleanPro to clean your carpet
