Anti-Allergenic Carpet Treatment

The vast majority of allergies are not triggered by a small amount of contact with any particular allergen, but are usually triggered when a specific sufferer exceeds their own personal threshold of exposure to several of the substances to which they react.

This means that an allergy sufferer can actually be in the presence of substances to which they react, without showing a reaction - it is only when this threshold is passed that an allergic reaction takes place.

The most common allergic reactions are triggered by a wide range of substances including pollens, smoke and dust mite droppings which can resulting an inability to breath properly, asthma, rhinitis, streaming eyes, headaches, nausea and various types of skin sensitivities.

Many of us spend at least 40 hours a week in the office or our place of work and while smoke is no longer an issue in most environments, the problem with dust mite allergies remains. Dust Mites are microscopic arachnids found anywhere there is dust, one gram of dust can house as many as 500 dust mites and it is the droppings of these mites that have been identified as a major source of allergic reaction.

Oxfordshire Carpet Cleaners can apply a treatment after cleaning that instantly deactivates the allergen found in dust mite droppings by denaturing the substance, this protection remains for quite some time afterwards. Protecting your carpet with an anti-allergen treatment may result in fewer "allergy" related sick days from your employees.
