Spring Allergens, Carpets, and Fabric

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably noticed your eyes itching, your nose leaking, and people around you sneezing as the seasons change - congratulations, this marks the beginning of a warm spring for our beautiful Woodbridge, Virginia neighborhood.


Luckily, there’s a few ways that you can prevent allergens from living in the fabrics and linens of your home, and further worsening your symptoms as a result. This article will go in depth and provide three essential tips for mitigating spring allergy symptoms while in your home.


Place “outside” clothing in hampers away from carpets and linens.


After going outside, your clothes will naturally absorb pollen and allergens. As a result, your carpets and linens will absorb the allergens if you track them inside with your clothing. The best way to mitigate this risk is to prevent your clothing from coming into contact with areas or surfaces where allergens may be stored.


To prevent this issue, store your dirty clothes in your laundry room or garage, away from carpets and linens.


Shower immediately when you return home.


One of the quickest ways to get allergens off your body, mitigate your symptoms, and further prevent any pollen being tracked into your carpets is taking a quick shower.


A quick shower or rinse off will remove the allergens from your hair and face immediately, allowing you to go back to living symptom free in your allergen free home (if you follow these steps to keep additional allergens out of your home, of course).


Clean your carpets and upholstered furniture yearly, at the end of the spring season.


Although preventative measures work great, there will naturally be residual pollen and allergens that end up in your home (simply due to outside air). The best way to truly eliminate these allergens is to get your carpet and upholstered furniture cleaned yearly at the end of the spring season, ensuring you don’t experience symptoms beyond the life of the peak allergy season.
