Another Reason to do Spring Cleaning: Keeping Allergens at Bay

The coming of spring is a time when the Toronto area wakes up from a snowy winter and enjoy warmer weather. But for one in six Canadians who suffer from hay fever or seasonal allergies, this is the time of year when some of us have allergies that make us cough, scratch our eyes, wheeze, and become irritable. We don’t want that.

As we wrote before, spring is the time when we make it a priority to do a deep annual clean involving steam cleaning carpets, cleaning windows, and stripping and waxing floors. Spring cleaning also helps remove allergens that make their way into the work environment, which helps those with allergies breathe easier.

When it comes to vacuuming, it’s important that vacuums get the very tiny particulates that cause allergies. Allergy Consumer Review explains that a good vacuum should have a high air flow rating, which means that it pulls out allergens from carpets and upholstery faster and penetrate deeper. It should also have a HEPA filter positioned after the motor and sealed so that allergens don’t leak out.

Eliminating airborne dusts and allergens helps improve indoor air quality, which, in turn, helps reduce building related illnesses. When employees aren’t suffering allergies, they tend to be happier and more productive taking fewer sick days. This helps save organizations money.

We care about clean, and we’re sure that any allergy sufferers at your workplace also care about clean. There’s no way to eliminate all allergens, but regular cleaning definitely makes a difference. Make it a priority this spring to schedule a deep spring clean and regular cleaning to keep allergens at a minimum.
