Carpets can be long-lasting and adaptable and thankfully, they go with almost any decor. Unfortunately, individuals afflicted with dust and mould allergies may struggle with carpets, especially those left uncleaned.

People with allergies often avoid carpets and upholstery that can gather dust and other allergens, but by following a few simple steps you can make carpets and other upholstery safe for use by everyone.

Vacuuming and steam cleaning are some of the most efficient strategies to eliminate allergy particles from your carpet after they land.

Why Are Carpets Cause of Concern to Allergy Sufferers?

Carpets are constructed of cloth, and they accumulate dirt/debris— regardless of whether the fabric is organic or synthetic. For people with allergies, this is a concern since they also gather particles such as pollen or mould, which can trigger seasonal allergies.

Wet or water-damaged carpets can become a breeding ground for even more dangerous mould and mildew.

These carpet problems, on their own, do not cause allergies any more than airborne particles or microorganisms do. However, if you, your family, or your visitors are sensitive to them, it will certainly “amplify” their responses too. Worse, they can cause issues even after allergy season has passed, making your loved ones more vulnerable to winter illness and congestion.

Is it Important What Kind of Carpet I Have If I Have Allergies?

The answer is both yes and no.

  • No, since a carpet, regardless of the material it is composed of, can trap pollen and other particles. Bristles in synthetic nylon carpet still capture dirt from the air. Similarly, all carpets have to cushion that can become damp and trap mould or mildew.
  • Yes, because the carpet may draw more allergy-causing debris depending on the type used. For example, wool carpeting is a considerably more friendly environment for mildew and other germs to breed than nylon carpeting.

Here are a few carpets cleaning tips that can help you get around the problem:


Ideally, you must vacuum your carpet regularly. It should be done at least once a week, depending on the space. When buying a new vacuum cleaner, make sure it includes a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter, which traps dust mites and pollen. Vacuumed dust may otherwise get released back into the atmosphere. It’s critical to change your HEPA filter regularly because the component loses effectiveness over time.

Steam Cleaning

Steam clean your carpets at least once in twelve months. The extra benefit of steam cleaning is that it extends the life of your matting. Better yet consider hiring a professional cleaning company if you would like the most intensive cleaning possible.

Areas to focus on.

Concentrate your efforts on the places you use the most, such as your bedroom. On average, we sleep for a third of our lives. Because of the dust-laden air in resting spaces, many people’s allergy problems are seen to worsen in the morning and improve a bit as the day progresses. Sheets and flooring should all be cleaned regularly to help alleviate any stresses. If you have pets, ensure to clean and maintain the areas where they spend the most time.
