Keeping your office as free from allergens as possible – Carpet Cleaning Services
Those in the know have already performed an early spring cleaning of their offices, getting rid of salt stains and the grime tracked in on their carpets from our harsh winter weather. But now we need to talk in depth about allergy sufferers, not only those facing early spring allergies but those reacting to year round allergens.
Pollen is a trigger for spring allergies, causing such symptoms as runny noses and itchy, watery red eyes and in turn that can make it difficult for those allergic office staff to concentrate. As we walk into our offices pollen is tracked in on our shoes and shed off of our clothes and where does it end up but adhering to everything in the office as pollen is a sticky substance. To make life easier for your staff Carpet Care Systems advises your office to set up a daily carpet cleaning routine and a programmed steam cleaning.
Not only is pollen a culprit in making life difficult for those suffering from allergies but general organic spills from beverages and food can in themselves create problems. Moisture left unattended can cause mould and mildew to grow. Mould and mildew pose serious health risks, they will exacerbate asthma symptoms. Asthma is a life threatening disease.
A person can shed enough skin in a day to feed a million dust mites. Some people are allergic to the fecal matter that is left behind by dust mites, causing such allergic symptoms as wheezing, coughing and stuffy, runny noses. A deep vacuuming of all carpets, rugs and soft materials, daily, is essential to remove fecal matter. A steam cleaning of your carpets is what is needed to actually kill off the dust mites. Remember, we spend many hours in the office, dust mites do not just live in your home. Allergic reactions to the mites can trigger serious asthma attacks.
Pollen, spills and dust mites, contributing factors to allergic reactions, are difficult to keep on top of unless a daily vacuuming of your carpets and soft materials is performed and a steam cleaning regime is set up to help keep your office allergen free.
