This month will see the country start to prepare for the Summer season, the weather is becoming milder and it’s the perfect time to banish Winter from you home, as well as preparing for the troubles that summer brings to hayfever sufferers with pesky allergens invading your home!
A good spring clean is often a great way to do those bigger cleaning jobs that get missed on a regular basis. With a little bit of elbow grease you can ensure your home sparkles for those summer months ahead. With Easter weekend round the corner, now is the perfect time to get your home in top condition. A job such as packing up winter clothes can make so much difference to your wardrobe! Pack away your family’s bulky winter woolies, boots, heavy coats and jumpers and store for the summer. You will be surprised how much space you can reclaim in hallways, coat rooms and bedroom drawers.
Did you know the air inside your house is ten times dirtier than outside? It is the perfect place for bacteria, microbes and plant pollen build up over the winter months, but you can help reduce allergens in the home such as mould, mildew, dust mites, and dust with a top to bottom clean. The carpet is the largest textile in your home, which makes it a perfect place for particles, dust, dirt and pet fibres to root deep into the fibres and carpet pile. You could be sitting, unaware of the allergens around you, never letting up on your runny nose, heavier breathing and irritating skin and constant sneezing – when part of the problem could be right under your feet. We have a more detailed article on carpet cleaning to reduce hayfever and allergies here.
All those muddy boots that have been traipsed through the house over winter will have had a long term impact on your carpets; not only because bacteria and pollens last in your carpet for up to three months, but this can cause decomposition of the carpet backing which could lead to further floor damage, as well as longterm unpleasant smells. A regular vacuum will often not have the suction needed to get to the root of the problem and that means carpets are a perfect breeding ground for more bacteria. Try to invest in a vacuum with the British Allergy foundation seal of approval, these have a high ‘hepa’ filtration, so no allergens escape from the exhaust, and a rotating beater that physically agitates and lifts the carpet pile is also essential in our eyes. Regular vacuum cleaning, and regular home carpet cleaning can really help to keep your home and family in top health throughout the year.
