The air quality in my house is very good; however, I still get allergies from time to time. If you have a family member or roommate that is prone to allergies then maybe it is time to invest in some professional carpet cleaning services. Of course, I thought of going to my local carpet cleaning shop when my air quality was just okay but, I read that professional carpet cleaners remove up to 99% of allergens from your carpet through a carbon filtration system. So figured I'd find out how to find a carpet cleaner that would also do a good job with removing pet dander and dust mites from my home's carpeting and also clean and sanitize my air ducts. I've always made the point that if something is good enough for the Mayo Clinic then it's good enough for me!
I went on to read online about the benefits of hiring a professional carpet cleaner, especially since air quality throughout my entire home is critical to having a healthy home package. So figured that I'd research how to find a carpet cleaner that would also be able to remove pet dander and other allergens from my carpet. Also, since having a clean air duct means I don't have to keep blowing cool air vents all over the house which is a huge energy hogging mistake! After reading some good articles on the net I figured I should probably call my local carpet cleaning business to see what they charged. Turns out they charge a pretty reasonable $30 per hour for a cleaning job. I was glad I got all of that information before I actually started doing the cleaning.
I'm back today to vacuum and take out all of the debris that has accumulated over the past few months. To finish up, I used a carpet cleaning product that I picked up at the local pharmacy. The Chem-dry product worked very well and I'm not going to hire a company any time soon. I hope my story helps you out with your allergies or asthma and makes you want to schedule an appointment with a local HCE.
