It's spring time in Georgia and the pollen is flying. They are predicting a pollen "explosion" over the next few weeks. Warmer than usual temperatures through the winter in Atlanta allowed many trees and flowers to bloom. The late frost killed off those buds which will bring on flowers stronger than ever.
Nothing is better to remove ground in dirt pollen and hidden bacteria than having your carpets steam cleaned which uses extra hot temperatures and cleaning fluids to loosen and remove dirt, bacteria and other invisible pollutants that may make you or your family ill.
We have allergy sufferers in my home and you'd be amazed how much pollen gets trapped in the carpets from wind blowing it in or brought in on shoes. You see how cars turn yellow in the spring. Pollen is every where and easily gets trapped in your carpets and brought into the house through a variety of means.
After the first burst of pollen this year, you should get your carpets cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner who uses only hot water steam extraction. This is the best method to loosen pollen from deep within the fibers of your carpet and pull those out with steam extraction.
We get our carpets cleaned shortly after the yellow stops landing on our cars and then again before the end of year holidays to make sure we're picking up pollen from the carpets twice a year.
During one of those times, we also get the tile and wood floors cleaned. While they don't harbor the pollen like carpets, it's a great time to get a refresh to these floors.
Best to you in staying clear of the pollen....or at least as best as you can during springtime in Georgia!
