I have a reputation for being really extra-sensitive.
Extra-sensitive skin, that is.
Bugs touch my skin and I break out in rashes.
Even the sun and dust would make it turn red. I cannot use flannel blankets even if it can get awfully cold because I will itch like crazy.
So what am I doing with a carpeted room when practically everyone is saying that carpets are bad news for allergy sufferers?
I have been sleeping in this carpeted room for like ten years now and I didn’t get as much rashes galore and asthma attack as much as if I stayed in another un-carpeted room.
I live in a city where it rains a lot and wet weather is bad news for asthma and allergy-sufferers like me.
However, I think getting regular carpet cleaning is helping a whole lot in preventing those allergy attacks. Vacuuming the carpet regularly, limiting dirt by frantically stopping the kids with muddy shoes from going into the room, and hiring professionals to do some deep carpet cleaning and Upholstery Cleaning are the factors that made me rash and allergy-free.
Sleeping in a room with musty wooden floors (we do get that smell every rainy season) was a lot worse.
I have read somewhere that the carpet acts much like a filter, trapping allergens such as dust and pet dander. As long as you remove these allergens by thoroughly cleaning the carpet regularly, your chance of getting an allergy attack is practically zero.
Blaming the carpet for your allergy woes won’t cut it anymore. Try blaming yourself instead for neglecting to clean it regularly.
