[separator top=”-55″ bottom=”10″ style=””]If you have experienced the kind of scenario where you get home from being out for the day and start to sneeze or get watery, itchy eyes, it’s time to consider if your carpet is upsetting your allergies.
Why does a carpet aggravate allergies?
There is a big link between carpets and allergies because they act as a magnet for everything that upsets allergy sufferers. Firstly, allergens are proteins that can upset the sensitive immune system of allergy sufferers.
These allergens, known as antigens, can cause coughing and sneezing fits that are very bothersome to those affected. Mould spores, shedding from pets and dust mites can all be found in carpets and are all forms of allergens.
Carpets can contain up to 100 times more allergens than hard flooring. This means if the carpet is not thoroughly clean then any disturbance on the carpet can send the allergens into the air.
If you have small children there is even more to think about regarding their immune systems. As babies and children are closer to the carpet you have to consider what they are breathing in on a daily basis. Even if your child does not have allergies it is still unhygienic to breathe in the dust, et cetera.
