Are Dirty Carpets Making You Sneeze?

North Durham car covered in pollen dust.

The Bull City is home to prestigious universities, entertaining sports teams, beautiful arts centers, and pollen. For those suffering from tree allergies, the peak season of April is near. Welcome, the thin film of pollen dust that coats cars, and homes and leaves sufferers with watery eyes, and runny noses. Hence the greenish-yellow tint on cars across NC this time of year. According to a study done by Elon University, North Carolina has the dubious pleasure of being ranked high among states worst to live in for those with allergies.

If you leave your windows open to enjoy the fresh breeze coming through, you can expect the NC pollen to collect in your home like dust, thus potentially aggravating existing allergies. The constant battle to keep the pollen off the cars, and out of the home is enough for some people to just give up.

If your home has carpet, the pollen dust can collect in the fibers and even thoroughly vacuuming may still leave remnants behind.

SERVPRO® of North Durham offers residential and commercial carpet cleaning. Our technicians are courteous and knowledgeable in all the ways to remove stains, and clean your carpets to like new condition.

Call us anytime at 919-467-0880 to schedule services.
