If you want to minimize allergy symptoms in your home, there are a few very important things you can do. One of the most effective ways would be having your carpets professionally cleaned regularly. Every three months to be exact. BUT, having your carpets professionally cleaned isn’t enough! Be proactive and follow these tips.

Get yourself an anti-allergy vacuum cleaner for the daily carpet cleanings. Vacuuming with an anti-allergy vacuum can minimize allergens in your home. Make your home a comfortable one, even if you suffer from seasonal or year-round allergies.


Know About the Allergens You’re Fighting

In the United States, it’s pretty common to have allergies/breathing problems. Did you know that nearly 55% of Americans have allergies or asthma?! Contrary to popular belief, most allergens are commonly found indoors. Common allergies include pet dander, dust mites and ragweed. 


How to Choose The Right Anti-Allergy Vacuum

Having the proper equipment and products is important to keeping the allergies at bay.  You should look for a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter.

Allergy-friendly vacuums have a wide price spectrum. With that in mind, make sure you get exactly what you need. Here are the features that you should look for in your vacuum cleaner:

– A HEPA Filter

The acronym HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air. It refers to a filter that is microporous so that it can trap small particles of dust, dander and debris. If a vacuum cleaner doesn’t have a HEPA filter, it will often circulate these tiny particles back into the air. The HEPA filter can trap and store large amounts of the annoying particles so that they do not haunt an allergic person’s immune system.   

– Anti-Allergen Seals

Along with the HEPA filter, anti-allergen seals keep the dust trapped tightly inside the vacuum canister, and not in the air you breathe.

– Strong Suction Technology

Don’t get a vacuum that sucks….unless you’re talking about its suction power. More suction, the better! Suction will allow the vacuum to lift more allergens from the deepest fibers of the carpet. Look for vacuums that advertise strong suction power. If you can, also find one with a suction control feature, which usually means high amounts of suction strength.

– Low Emissions

Your car isn’t the only thing that has emissions. Your vacuum emits pollutants while you are vacuuming. Find a vacuum that has low emissions.


Professional Carpet Cleaners for Allergic Reaction Deduction

Remember, even as you vacuum regularly to reduce allergens, there is a need for professional carpet cleaning. If done correctly, professional carpet cleaners will extract deeply embedded dirt, allergens, and bacteria that the regular vacuum can’t reach.


Not all professional carpet cleaners use the same methods. However, here at Chinook Chem-Dry in , CA, we use a proprietary Hot Carbonation Extraction cleaning process that has been tested and proven to removed 98% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery, as well as 89% of air-borne bacteria.
