Watery Eyes - Stuffy Nose - Allergens?  Blame It On Your Carpeting.


Do you have itchy eyes, allergy problems, or breathing issues in your home?

The culprit to your troubles could be right beneath your feet, yup, your carpeting.

Carpeting is the largest filter in the home, and by design, hides dirt, viruses, pollen, dust mites, and other contaminants, and Tru-Clean Surface Care knows how to get them out.

Carpeting is good for residential and commercial properties because of its ability to filter impurities.

Surfaces that are made of tile, natural stone, or other hard surfaces can not filter pollen, dust mites, and other contaminates.  These allergens remain loose and are easily stirred within the home by the mere act of walking across the flooring.

How Carpeting Traps and Hides Allergens.

  1. Bacteria

Imagine one pound of dirt. Now, imagine it’s all squeezed into one square foot of carpet. Researchers at many of the nation’s largest carpet mills have found that carpeting is capable of such feats.

Carpeting takes a beating every single day.  We walk on it, cough over it, spill food on it, and groan when our pets use it for the bathroom.

Carpeting is an excellent filter for the home; however, if not kept clean, this filter can also trap:

  • Sand
  • Skin flakes
  • Pollen and Dust Mites
  • Campylobacter
  • Salmonella
  • Shigella
  • Listeria
  • Well you get it, a LOT of stuff

The good news is that Tru-Clean Surface Care’s cleaning professionals have the tools to remove all these contaminants, soils, viruses, and more. The result is fewer germs, improved indoor air quality, and healthier families.

  1. Allergens

Dust, pollen, viruses, mites, and more root themselves in the carpet. As a result, individuals with asthma find it harder to breathe and suffer from allergy issues.

To combat this, our carpet cleaning experts use advanced technologies that clean your carpet to the base. We choose our products to be non-toxic for pets and children and friendly for those with asthma and allergies.

  1. Pet Dander

Our furry felines and canines contribute to allergies and poor indoor air quality.

Microscopic bits of skin called pet dander embed themselves into the carpet. Due to the small size and jagged shape of pet allergens, they stick to anything with a carpeted or upholstered surface.

A buildup of these tiny particles leads to:

  • Sneezing
  • Congestion
  • Wheezing
  • Tightness of the chest
  • Runny noses

Since pets are low-to-the-ground animals, they constantly imbed their dander, oils (and other things) in the carpet and, thus, the air. If you have your carpets professionally cleaned, you can reduce these allergens to safe levels.

  1. Moisture

One spill might lead to leftover moisture in your carpet and padding. From that moisture, mold grows and attracts other allergens.

You then breathe all these things in.

Mold is problematic because it drastically impacts air quality and health. Mold may lead to respiratory issues and flu-like symptoms.

Regular vacuum cleaning doesn’t eliminate moisture (or many other allergens). That’s why we use the newest and most effective methods to leave your carpets clean, dry, and smelling fresh.

  1. Fresh Smells

Nothing shouts “unclean” like a foul-smelling house. And carpeting holds odors like no other material.

If you want a clean, fresh-scented house, start with cleaning your carpets. By minimizing the allergens, dirt, oils, and other contaminates carpeting holds, your indoor air quality improves, and your home smells fresh and clean.

Are you tired of feeling exhausted? Want to breathe better and get rid of that stuffy nose and watery eyes? A thoroughly exhaustive carpet cleaning may be all you need.
