Allergies And Carpets
There is a lot of conflicting research about whether people with allergies should have wall-to-wall carpet. Allergy often can be caused by house dust mites. Usually, dust mites thrive in warm, humid environments. Commonly found in carpet, bedding, soft furnishings, and clothing. However, a growing body of research suggests that carpet can trap dust mites; rather than become airborne. Therefore it is more beneficial to allergy sufferers.

House dust mite allergies are also with an increase in the frequency and severity of asthma. Call asthma and home allergy experts at Steam ‘n’ Dry Auckland Carpet Cleaning service.

The Asthma Foundation of Auckland Carpet Allergies Recommendations
The Asthma Foundation New Zealand have the following asthma and allergy advice:
- If you want carpet, the low-pile varieties are better, as there is less area for dust mites to build up.
- Vacuum at least once a week, using a vacuum cleaner with a high-efficiency particle air (HEPA) filter. Alternatively, install an external ducted vacuum cleaning system. Or, at the very least, use double-walled vacuum bags.
- While vacuuming, people with allergies should wear a mask. Aim to keep both doors and windows open.
- People prone to allergic reactions should stay out of the room for at least 20 minutes after vacuuming; to give the dust allergens time to dissipate.
What Are Allergies and Allergens?
