Carpet Cleaning: Tips To Reduce Allergens And Germs

At Zerorez® carpet cleaning, we know that fall is just around the corner, even though it doesn't feel like it right now. We're fortunate in southeastern Nevada that our temperatures don't drop too sharply at the end of summer; but because they don't drop sharply and our temperatures stay balmy to cool in the fall and winter seasons, allergens are in the air pretty much all year round. What does that mean for you if you've been longing for an end to your runny noses and itchy, watery eyes? It means you're going to have to follow these fall carpet cleaning tips to reduce the number of allergens and germs in your home:

1 - Wash Your Hands

Though this isn't technically a carpet cleaning tip, washing your hands regularly, especially before eating and after using the bathroom, is one of the easiest things you can do to keep allergens at bay. You'll also wash away most of the germs that can cause colds and flu.

2 - Cover Your Sneeze

Again, this isn't a carpet cleaning tip; but covering your sneeze, whether it's into a tissue or into the crook of your elbow, will reduce the number of germs floating around your home or office. Try not to sneeze into your hand, but if you do, wash your hands as soon as possible so that you don't touch surfaces with them.

3 - Remove Your Shoes

Now, onto keeping your carpets clean. It may be inconvenient but when you remove your shoes at the door of your home, you significantly reduce the number of bacteria, allergens and germs you would normally track inside. If possible, create a space near the entrance of your home for shoe removal.

4 - Vacuum Regularly

Everything that floats in the air in your home eventually lands on your carpeting where it becomes trapped in the carpet fibers. Regular vacuuming is one of the most important things you can do to maintain the quality of your carpeting and to reduce the number of germs and allergens that land on your carpeting.

5 - Focus On Common Areas

If you don't have time to clean and vacuum your whole home every day, try to concentrate daily cleaning of commonly-used areas of your home where germs and allergens can easily spread. Vacuum the living room carpet and wipe down your refrigerator door handle, door knobs, remote controls, toilet handles, light switches and countertops with disinfecting cleaner.
