Dust mites are a leading cause of allergies.
A special report on dust mites and allergies. Dust mite fecal matter is the leading allergen that affects the majority of people.
Keep your carpets, mattresses and upholstered furniture fresh and clean by calling Accent American to have these items professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Regular frequent vacuuming can also help prevent allergens from accumulating and causing allergies to act up. Purchase cloth covers for mattresses and pillows, and wash them regularly. Plastic ones can actually make the situation worse as they allow the allergens to be released into the air rather than trapping and holding them.
Cleanliness is the key to fighting indoor allergies. Vacuum your hard floors or use a dust trapping cloth system like a swiffer so that you are not kicking the dust back up into the air. Dust mite fecal matter will float at 4 1/2 ft for up to 8 hours once it is kicked up. That’s the average breathing zone of a woman or child.
And contrary to popular belief, carpet is better for people with allergies as it traps and holds the allergens in the fibers rather than letting them escape into the air where they can be inhaled. Carpet is the biggest filter in your home. Your carpets, like your air conditioning filter, needs to be cleaned regularly in order for it to do it’s job properly. Frequent vacuuming using a HEPA vacuum can help keep the air in your home free of allergens, but even the best vacuum can only remove about 50% of what is trapped in the carpet. Professional carpet cleaning using truck mounted hot water extraction using our powerful equipment removes up to 96% of the trapped debris, and will address any spots or spills also.
Professional carpet cleaning helps reduce dust mites and other allergens, leaving you and your family breathing easier.
