Poor Air Quality? Dirty Floors and Carpets Aren't Helping

While your floors and carpets may look clean, they're likely housing thousands of dust and dirt particles that can be kicked into the air. Frequent cleaning is key for healthier air and surfaces.

Check Your Floors and Carpets

Dirt, dust mites, pollen, and dander collect over time, settling into your floors and rugs. Using fans and simply moving around your house can circulate these pollutants into your air, causing allergies, asthma, and cold-like symptoms.

How to check your floors and carpets

  • Indoor air pollution can cause allergy and asthma problems or worsen the problem you might already have. If you feel lousy at home but better everywhere else, the problem could be in the air.

  • Check your home for signs of dust or dirt build up. Floors, and carpets in particular, are the most likely to collect dust, dirt, and dander.

The floors may not be the issue — consider other indoor allergy culprits.

What To Do If Your Floors and Carpets Are Dirty

The best thing you can do is routinely clean your floors and carpets. Dust sweepers, vacuums, and mops are great everday tools, but consider more specialized cleaning devices if you want to get into nooks and crannies or high-pile carpets.
