the Autumn months are when a thorough cleaning should be organised.
This is because Autumn is a time when allergies increase due to an increase in carpet dust mites and harmful bacteria.
Falling night-time temperatures, central heating being turned up and closed windows having inadequate vacuuming means that autumn is “the perfect time for carpets to house potentially harmful microbes and dust mite allergens.
There’s no doubt that as the long cold days draw in, it’s tempting to close all your windows 24 hours a day and crank up the central heating.
But this only makes the problem worse. Reducing ventilation will increase moisture in your home’s atmosphere and provide the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, dust mites and other such allergens.
Investing in and using a powerful vacuum will certainly help remove pet dander, hairs and dead dust mites. But in order to completely remove these troublesome allergens, a deep professional carpet clean is essential at this time of year.
