For those prone to summer allergies, the next few months of fun in the sun can be tainted by constant sneezing, runny noses, headaches, and itchy eyes. While allergy relief medications can help, there are also some ways to tackle the problem at the root. Your home or business carpets can act like a trap for countless allergen particles, and sometimes regular vacuuming can’t remove everything. At ServiceMaster DSI, we provide professional carpet cleaning in Kansas City, MO to get rid of summer allergens.
It can be nearly impossible to avoid summer allergens outdoors, but you can create a space of escape from the itching and sneezing inside your home or business. These most common allergens can be removed from your carpets in just one cleaning session.
Pollen: Pollen is in the air during almost every season, but in the summer months, ragweed and grass pollen are extremely prevalent. Unfortunately, ragweed and grass pollens are also the most powerful allergens. If pollen settles in your carpets, it can cause allergic reactions for months to come, and because pollen particles are so small, they could easily be missed by a regular vacuum.
Mold: Mold can also become a year-round problem if the spread of spores is not addressed. In the summer, the spread of mold peaks on humid days and especially during the late summer and early fall months. Alternaria is one of the most common types of mold, and can trigger asthma as well as allergic reactions. ServiceMaster DSI offers mold removal and remediation services.
Poison oak and ivy: The oils secreted from plants like poison oak and poison ivy are toxic and cause allergic reactions for most people. It might seem like you can avoid exposure to poison plants while indoors, but the oils can be transferred from fabric to fabric. If your carpet collects the oils from shoes or pants, it’s still toxic when exposed to the skin. You can clean poison oak and ivy from the skin with washes like Tecnu®.
Our carpet cleaning services are the surest way to remove summer allergens from your carpet fibers. If you feel like you can’t escape from your allergy symptoms, even indoors, contact ServiceMaster DSI for our carpet cleaning services in Kansas City, MO.
