Spring Cleaning Tips
Spring is in air and unfortunately so are unwanted pollen, dust and other allergens! Allergy symptoms are the worst but luckily there are many ways you can reduce your symptoms to all your allergies. The largest collectors of allergy producers in your home or office are usually the ducts, carpet, and upholstery. If you make sure they are frequently cleaned, you can decrease the chances of your allergies acting up.
- Duct Cleaning – It is important to keep indoor air clean. You can use a dehumidifier to keep the indoor air dry. Dust and other allergens can easily get stuck in between your air conditioning unit and your air vents. While you can make sure to change your filters on a regular basis, it is suggested to have your ducts cleaned once a year at a minimum. If you are not sure how to do this, you can have a SERVPRO of Alhambra professional come to check and clean your duct work.
- Carpet Cleaning– You can help keep your carpet clean by consistently using a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter. Vacuuming is great in helping with dust and pollen but it is also recommended that you should have your carpets professionally cleaned at least every 6 months to a year. It is easy for your carpet and padding to collect allergens without regular vacuuming. If you have SERVPRO of Alhambra clean you carpet, you will notice a drastic difference in the cleanliness of your carpet.
- Upholstery Cleaning – If you think about how long you have had your couch and how much use it gets, you will realize how often it should be cleaned. You can try vacuuming your couch but it only removes so much. We suggest having your upholstered furniture professionally cleaned a few times a year to remove excess dirt and anything else hiding under the cushions.
