Spring is just arriving and it is highly anticipated, but now we have to face those spring allergies. So, we may wonder, what can we do to make sure this spring is joyful, not dreadful?
Well, if you have carpets, it might not be as bad you think. According to a study, performed by Shaw Industries (a carpet and floor manufacturer), if carpets are cleaned properly and regularly, they will trap allergens and other particles, which means fewer particles will be floating in the air. So this helps maintain the air quality in a home. Therefore, it is very important to:
- Vacuum Regularly
- Limit Tracking in Dirt
- Professionally Clean Your Carpets Once a Year (also, upholstery, drapes and blinds)
If you have hardwood floors, make sure to sweep and mop your floors regularly so the dust and particles won’t weaken the air quality in your home.
Also, don’t forget these things when doing your spring cleaning:
- Get your Tile & Grout Cleaned and Resealed: sometimes it’s very hard to get between those tiny pores with a tooth brush, plus those areas tend to collect moisture in your kitchens or bathrooms.
- Dust Books, Shelves & Other Hard to Reach Places
- Clean Upholstery
- Wash Window Screens & Windows
