Coppell Carpet Cleaning Company, Christine Snyder owner of Snyder’s Carpet Care discusses dust and allergens in a Part 2 series on dust mites.

On the last blog we promised you a part two of the dust mite saga. Yuck, they are in your carpeting and all over your house and the worst part, they are an allergen. There are ways however to combat dust, dust mites and other allergens in your entire house.

We already discussed frequent vacuuming and carpet cleaning for your flooring. Don’t forget about vacuuming or dusting those base boards, especially under the bed. Your furniture can also benefit from a good cleaning. Your couch and chairs can all collect dust and allergens year after year and few people think of cleaning them. If you’ve had the same recliner in front of the TV for years you may want to check with your carpet cleaning professional about a good cleaning.

Some other place to combat dust:

  • Beds are the most common place for dust mites to be found. Did you know that 10% of the weight of a two year old pillow can be compromised of dust mites? You can however purchase dust mite covers for mattresses and pillows.
  • Stuffed Animals! Little Susie’s favorite Teddy Bear could be harboring a lot of allergens. When she is not looking put the stuffed animals in a sealed plastic bag and freeze it. After freezing you may want to give it a once over with the vacuum hose.
  • Sheets and Bedding. You should be washing your bedding in hot water at least every two weeks.
  • Air Filters. Make sure to clean air filters frequently. If anyone in your family is showing symptoms of allergies try a special allergen filter.

For most people dust mites are not going to prove an immediate threat but for a lot of people they do induce an allergic reaction. Be mindful that individuals are rarely allergic to just the dust mites; they probably have a combination of allergies such as pollens, mold and pet dander. All of our suggestions will be helpful in fighting allergies and improving the air quality of your home. Now let’s get cleaning!
