The number of people that suffer from allergies and intolerances in Ireland continues to increase significantly. Approximately 475,000 people have asthma in Ireland and according to the Asthma Association of Ireland we have the 4th highest prevalence of asthma in the world.

Most people do not realise that carpets and fabric upholstery actually help allergy sufferers as they can effectively filter and trap allergens, dirt and bacteria that can trigger allergies. People spend on average in excess of 90% of their time indoors so air quality within the home is very important especially for allergy sufferers.

Having your carpets cleaned regularly is extremely important as they can become full just like an air filter in a car which can have a significant effect on air quality within the house. While vacuuming regularly can help with allergies and asthma, it is highly recommended to get your carpets cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner to remove the allergens and dirt that a regular hoover can’t reach. A recent independent study by an air laboratory has found that Chem-Dry removes an average of approximately 98% of allergens from soft furnishings and carpets using our unique cleaning method. The types of allergens we remove include dust mites, other mites & pet dander.
