Allergies and wet carpet cleaning Allergies Do's and Don'ts    [ DRY ORGANIC™ Product ]        1 2 3   

If you have allergies or asthma

Naturally, you should discuss your allergies or asthma with your health care provider. Studies show that allergy patients with mild to moderate asthma can take certain over-the-counter and prescription drugs without worsening their asthma symptoms.


  • Keep windows closed at night to keep pollen and mold spores outside; use air-conditioning to clean, cool and dry air.
  • Limit outdoor activity in early morning when pollen is usually in the air (between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.).
  • Keep window closed when you travel in a car; use air-conditioning to clean, cool and dry air.
  • Stay indoors when the pollen count or humidity is high and on windy days when dust and pollen blow in the air.
  • Wash house pets weekly to cut down on the amount of allergens in the environment. If you towel dry your pet should be dry in 15 minuets.  
  • Have the house vacuumed frequently to remove animal dander and house dust. Have someone else vacuum using a high quality 3 stage HEPA filter type vacuum. Have someone dust with a damp cloth so that dust is not swirled into the air.  (Allergy sufferers should leave the room when this is done).
  • Use allergen-proof covers on mattresses and pillows.
  • Avoid foods and medicines that cause itching and hives.
  • Follow your doctor's instructions.


  • Mow the lawn or be around freshly cut grass when the pollen count, humidity and/or wind factors are high.
  • Rake leaves; raking stirs up mold.
  • Hang sheets or clothing outdoors to dry; pollens and molds can collect on air-dried items.
  • Grow too many indoor plants; wet dirt causes mold to grow.
