Carpet Cleaning Helps with Allergies


In Las Vegas, Nevada, allergies always seem to flare up at the worst times, bringing you into a fit of sneezing and being rashes and bringing all your plans to a halt. Most of the time, allergies tend to be at their worst when you go out and therefore have little control over what you encounter, however, very few people realize that lots of different things within your home can trigger your allergies without you even noticing the cause. One of the biggest triggers for allergies within your home is your carpets. While almost all materials trap fibers and can lead to an allergy flaring up, your carpets are by far one of the biggest causes.

Up to a certain point, carpets do help to prevent your allergies, by trapping the molecules that may be in the air within the carpet, and very rarely releasing them back into the air. Based on this, you may think it would make sense to never clean your carpets, after all, less work and your allergies won’t be triggered while you’re at home. However, this is unfortunately not the case, after a longer period, the molecules that are trapped in your carpets have built up so much that they are no longer being contained safely within the carpet fibres and are instead constantly being released back into the air, therefore triggering your allergies over a much linger period than they would have been otherwise.

So, what can you do to prevent your allergies flaring up in your home? Firstly, by making sure that you clean your carpets in Las Vegas regularly enough so that your allergies don’t begin to flare up further down the line, but also so that you can still enjoy some of the benefits of the carpet initially removing these allergy-triggering fibres from the air. The amount of time you should wait before cleaning your carpet varies depending on several factors, including what other materials are in the room with the carpet, as well as the types of materials and styles used within the carpet itself. As a rule of thumb, we recommend that you have your carpets professionally cleaned every other month, alongside hoovering to remove any obvious dirt within the carpet. This will allow your carpets to be completely “refreshed”, allowing them to hold as many allergy-causing fibres as possible after the clean, as well as freshening your room overall.

Another important factor to consider when cleaning your carpets is to ensure that the service you use to clean the carpets are to the highest quality possible. By making sure that your carpet is cleaned as well as possible helps to guarantee that as many allergy-triggering fibers are removed from your room as possible, whilst also freeing up more space within the carpet to trap allergy-fibers, overall leading to a massive reduction to how often your allergies are triggered whilst in your home.
