Does Carpet Really Cause Allergies?

Indoor air quality is very important to our health. The U.S. EPA has stated that Americans spend nearly 90% of their time indoors. Urban legends state that carpet reduces the indoor air quality. According to the Carpet & Rug Institute "the facts support quite the opposite in that carpet is better for indoor air quality because it acts as a filter by trapping allergens and keeping them out of the breathing zone. In fact, there is no scientific study linking the rise of allergies and asthma to the use of carpet."

The best way to eliminate the negative effects of allergens in your home is to keep your carpet clean. Vacuuming is the simplest and most effective way to remove excess dirt and allergens from your carpet. It is estimated that 90 to 95% of all dry soil by weight can be removed from your carpet by simply following a routine vacuuming schedule.

Another essential in eliminating allergens in your home is regular carpet cleaning. Most carpet manufacturers require hot extraction to comply with their warranty requirements. It is critical that you choose a reputable company that will not bring harsh chemicals or leave sticky residue after they clean.
