Professional carpet cleaning is the most effective solution to minimizing allergy symptoms in your family and at your workplace. However, the quarterly cleanings alone are not enough. You will want to find a reliable anti-allergy vacuum cleaner for your daily cleaning to help stop allergy symptoms from getting to their next victim.

How to Choose the Best Vacuum Cleaners for Allergies

Approximately 55 percent of the people in the U.S. have either asthma or allergies. Some of the most common allergies that people have are allergies to pet dander, dust mites, and ragweed. Ragweed is commonly found outside, but pet dander and dust mites are household allergens. Carpets are a hotspot for these allergens and can cause a lot of problems if not properly cleaned.

For the best maintenance of your carpet in between professional cleanings, we recommend purchasing a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter. This is one of the most important items that an allergic person can have in the home for their daily cleaning routine because it can reduce the number of allergens in the air significantly. 

Allergy-friendly vacuum cleaners can be basic, or they can cost several hundred dollars. The qualities and features you would look for in a vacuum cleaner for allergies are as follows:

A HEPA Filter

The acronym HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air. The HEPA filter is a microporous filter that traps small particles of dust, dander, and debris. Vacuum cleaners that are unequipped with HEPA filters tend to circulate these particles back into the air, which can easily incite allergy symptoms and worsen the problem for you and your family.

Anti-Allergen Seals

Anti-allergen seals are a special technology that goes well with HEPA filters. They keep the canister locked tightly to trap all the dust, debris, and particles. A shopper will want to look for units that have the filters and good seals because the combination can decrease the number of asthmatic or allergic reactions.

Strong Suction Technology

The amount of suction that a vacuum cleaner has is highly important to its ability to lift the allergens from the carpet. Units with suction control usually have more power than ones that do not come with such control. Another option is to read the description of many units and look for ones that boast about the suction strength.

Low Emissions

You will want to search for a vacuum cleaner that has low emissions. Emissions are the pollutants that come from a vacuum cleaner while the person is vacuuming. A unit must have tight craftsmanship and high-tech seals to reduce the number of emissions that it produces.

Professional Carpet Cleaners for Allergic Reaction Reduction

While vacuuming does a good job of removing dirt and allergens from your carpet, it does not solve the entire problem. For thorough removal of these harmful particles from carpet, have your carpets professionally cleaned every 3-4 months. Professional carpet cleaning from the experts at Immaculate Home Chem-Dry of Orange County is the most advanced and effective approach to carpet cleaning in Orange County. For years we have helped many families and businesses in Orange County live healthier lifestyles through our cleaning technology.
