Living in the mid west in cities such as Chicago provides ample opportunity for allergies to be at full force and one measure to help in keeping your allergies at bay and tolerable is proper carpet care, cleaning and installation.

Many older carpets believed to release chemicals into the air of homes and buildings causing heighted concerns for allergies and due to these worries carpet industry specialists started various programs to get a finer understanding of what caused these emissions and to lower the amounts that are released from the carpet.

In doing so there was a categorization system developed and it was found that while carpets can emit these chemicals, carpet is one of the lowest in terms of indoor emissions, well below, in fact, the guidelines of the EPA, whether they are made from natural materials or synthetic ones. Also, if proper ventilation is provided carpet has been found to be virtually free of any allergy inducing emissions.

The first step in keeping your carpets free of allergens is to regularly vacuum your carpeting. You should always clean and dust all fixtures, furniture, windows and other areas that are prone to collecting dust prior to vacuuming to ensure that you are cleaning in the most effective way. If you employ the use of a professional carpet cleaning company be sure to perform this dusting before they arrive, as the benefits of carpet cleaning with a Chicago carpet cleaning company is that they also disinfect while cleaning with hypo allergenic cleaning supplies.

It is suggested that when installing new carpet any member of the home or office having this work done should not be present until the work has been completed. This is a precautionary measure that should definitely be taken so as to not set off unnecessary allergic reactions.

It is also wise to be aware of your carpets conditions. Most carpeting made these days are designed to reduce and withstand staining. While it is never possible to avoid staining and soiling altogether buildup can and does occur, from large cities like Chicago to smaller ones nationwide. Many people feel that the only time to have carpets cleaned is when they appear to be dirty but it is better to have them cleaned on a regular basis otherwise you can allow allergens and chemicals to build up, exacerbating the situation. Having carpet cleaning performed with extraction about every 12-18 months is usually the most effective for this.

Remember that carpet, while enhancing the features of your home or office, also needs to be taken care of and cleaned as you would any other important item you have in your building as well as vehicles (main use or recreation) that you care for.

The health for you, your family and employees will be better off with just these few simple and easy to remember carpet cleaning and care recommendations.

Allergies and allergic reactions do exist but you can be sure to keep them at their minimum for the benefit and use of everyone!
