3 Carpet Cleaning Tips to Avoid Getting Sick, West Lake Hills, Texas

If you notice that you’re constantly getting sick, the cause might be inside your house. Even if you bundle up, take some medicine, and drink plenty of fluids, you might not get better until you clear your home of dirt and allergens. Your carpets are especially good at capturing these contaminants and causing your runny nose. Use the following carpet cleaning tips to help you stay healthy and avoid catching another cold.

How to Avoid Getting Sick With Carpet Cleaning

1. Take Off Your Shoes

If you wear shoes inside your house, make it a rule to start taking them off, especially in rooms that are carpeted. You can easily track in dirt, dander, and other allergens when you walk around with your shoes on. These substances can get trapped in the soft surfaces of your rug and recirculate back into your home, leading to respiratory issues. 

2. Vacuum Regularly

For example, simple habits such as opening and closing your front door or windows can allow dirt and debris to enter your home and settle on the carpet. Vacuuming regularly will help to remove these allergens from your carpet so they don’t reduce your indoor air quality and cause issues like coughing or sneezing. 

3. Clean Up Messes Quickly

Homeowners often eat or drink in rooms with carpeting. However, this poses a risk for spills and messes. If you allow these substances to sit for long periods, the moisture could soak beneath the surface, allowing mold or mildew to grow. Instead, quickly clean up any spills and thoroughly pat them dry as soon as they occur. In general, avoid eating food and dropping crumbs onto your carpets.
