Sensitive to Mold and Other Allergens?
Did you know that even the healthiest of individuals can still feel negative effects of mold and other allergens in the presence of some common things around the house?
It’s not something that necessarily has to start growing in the basement of your house after a flood. It’s something that can “just happen” and it’s obviously not good but it can be easily fixed.
First of all, what are we even talking about?
Old stuff brought in
There are some things brought into your home that can trigger your allergies or other sensitivities. This includes cardboard boxes, packages and other items sent or brought to you. The worst of all would be old stuff, anything that has been around a while gathering allergens.
Old ‘normal’ stuff
We’ve all been to a library and smelled old books. Those old books and documents can be allergen triggers, so be sure to remember this before checking out or taking them into your home.
The holidays are the few times a year when you use ornaments and other things but of course you have to store them when not in use. Remember that they can bring in allergens. It might be best to give them at least a wipe-down, if not a complete cleaning, after taking them from the attic.
This one is tough, and sometimes a sensitive issue. Sure, it’s perfectly fine to pass on mattresses from one generation to another, but what are you getting when you receive an old mattress or other bedding from someone not close to you? And be careful with that new-looking mattress at your neighbor’s garage sale; you don’t know what you are getting into. Did you know that every mattress has dust mites?
Old rugs and carpet
Rugs and carpet are very important to you, but be sure to have them inspected by your carpet cleaning pro before bringing them into your home. They can collect all types of allergens and other contaminants that can affect you and your family.
Remember: don’t be afraid to throw old stuff out! Protect your health and your family!
Make sure that what you bring into your home is safe— especially for any allergy or asthma issues you or your family may have. For any Mold or Allergends removal give a call to Mae's Carpet Cleaning at (704)904-2964 or visit us @ www.maescarpetcleaning.com
