What are Examples of Allergens?
Before we can help you to remove allergens from your carpet, we need to know what an allergen is. When we are talking about allergens in your carpet, we are talking about anything that can cause an allergic reaction that gets in your house and in your carpet. These reactions can happen when there are environmental allergens on your carpet. A lot of times you can’t see all the allergens on your carpet. They can get embedded down in your carpet. These allergens include dust mites, house dust, pet dander, pests, pollen, household chemicals and mold spores.
How Do Allergens Get Inside?
If you are someone who keeps your house pretty clean, then how do allergens get in your home? They can come in through the doors or windows when they are opened. If it is windy outside that is a great time that they can get into your home. They also get into your house by hitchhiking on a host, meaning a human, pet, or pest that comes inside can bring them in. They can also grow inside your home, like for example mold. Mold can start to grow and spread inside your home.
