Many people love the look and feel of carpet but worry about them affecting their allergies. However, it’s possible to have carpets and rugs in your home without causing allergic reactions. It just takes some special planning and a bit of extra care.
Put smaller rugs in high traffic areas.
A small rug by the front door can help catch dirt and dust that the welcome mat missed. This rug can be beaten out or even thrown into the wash to remove dust, dirt and allergens before they make their way further into your home.
Consider a shoes-off policy.
If you make it a habit to remove your shoes as soon as you get home, you can significantly cut down on the dust and allergens that are brought into the house. You can even keep a basket of slippers for guests so that taking shoes off is a pleasant ritual for everyone.
Vacuum regularly with the right tools.
Many vacuums just wind up stirring up allergens and making them airborne. Vacuums and vacuum cleaner bags with the right sort of filters can pick up dirt, dust and allergens like animal dander and keep them out of the air in the room. Look into what is available for your current vacuum or buy a new one that has better filters built in.
When you vacuum, focus especially well on the areas that get the most traffic. These should get at least a dozen passes, alternating direction so that you get access to areas that might otherwise be missed.
Get your carpets deep cleaned.
No matter how good your vacuum cleaner is, it’s still leaving behind some allergens. Experts recommend that you get carpets professionally cleaned one to two times a year to make sure they are truly clean. This deep cleaning can eliminate pollen, dust and dirt that otherwise leave you sneezing.
