Are You Allergic To Your Home?
Exposure to dust mite, certain pollens, and pet allergen are widely accepted to be one of the most important causes of allergic disease for many people. And, continued exposure aggravates allergic illnesses, which can lead to the development of others. Allergies are also risk factors for the development of more serious, chronic and even life-threatening illnesses like asthma and sinusitis
Obtain Immediate Symptom Relief
When a textile such as carpeting, mattresses, or upholstery has been cleaned and treated using our highly effective allergen treatment process, results are often seen within the first couple of days and many within hours of treatment
Imagine getting a good night’s sleep—tonight!
Anti-Allergen services don’t replace all the other sound practices you’re already using. But by coming at the problem in a new and different way the levels of allergens are radically reduced, often providing instant relief.
Dr. J Maberly, a consultant physician and allergy expert at the Airedale Health Authority in Yorkshire England demonstrated that the use of the active ingredient in our Allergy Relief Treatment product produces “significant changes in reactivity” and “markedly improved symptoms” in his patients.
In 2002, the National Institutes of Health published the results of a 3- year study determining that 46% of North American homes have bedding with enough dust mite allergen to cause allergies. Of these homes, 24% had levels that were five times greater than the threshold to cause allergic reactions!
Doctors now recommend that the most important way to reduce symptoms, control, and even prevent the development of allergies and asthma is to avoid or minimize exposure to these indoor allergens. Tru-Clean Surface Care offers an allergen-free clean and treatment process for mattresses that are guaranteed to deliver a good night’s sleep.
Enjoy Significantly Reduced Allergen Levels From Now On
When applied, our allergy relief treatment provides a residual effect for up to six months. While most users report that treatment every six months to nine months is highly effective, in the case of severe illnesses or challenging conditions in the home, treatment may be required every three months.
Naturally, you have to maintain a commitment to anti-allergen cleaning and treatment as part of your indoor air quality program. That’s because, unfortunately, we can never eliminate dust mites and for those of us that pets are a part of our family, we often can’t part with a beloved pet. Since animal allergens can persist in the home for years even after the source has been removed, a thoroughly exhaustive cleaning with allergen treatment is a critical factor in keeping allergen levels low.
What Are Allergens?
At its simplest form, allergens are proteins that have unique shapes that help identify them to the antibodies in our immune system.
When allergen proteins enter the body, our immune system (antibodies) search for the presence of these allergens and respond by blocking and defending against them. In people who have allergic reactions to a certain allergen protein, their immune systems are unable to effectively block allergic reactions.
Our Allergen Relief Process
Our allergen relief process is highly effective in treating carpeting, mattresses, draperies, and upholstered furniture.
As part of our cleaning process, we use an allergen-free cleaning agent under high steam and then follow-up with an anti-allergen rinsing solution treated with a denaturing agent designed to take apart allergens on contact. We then apply an allergen treatment designed to remain on the textile to help eliminate future allergen proteins. This treatment does not change the feel of the textile.
Our allergen treatment is safe for you, your children, and pets.
Cleaning Alone Is Not Enough
While cleaning soft side textiles such as draperies, carpeting, mattresses, and upholstery are important for not only extending their life and beauty but as a front end attack on allergens, cleaning is not enough to keep allergens at bay.
In the case of pet allergies, most people can’t bear to part with a beloved family pet even if it is the number one recommendation from doctors.
In SW Florida, allergens come in many different forms. From native pollens only found in our areas such as palm and many flowing varieties not found up north to common allergens such as dust mites and pet dander.
The key to treating homes where people are sensitive to allergens is the use of specialized cleaning agents to remove as much allergen and allergen food sources as possible followed by an allergen relief treatment that inactivates the allergens while preventing them from causing an allergic reaction.
