Controlling Pollen with Commercial Cleaning
As the seasons change, so does the potential for allergies. While many people enjoy the changing of the leaves and the explosion of fall color, this season also brings unpleasant side effects. Ragweed pollen can lead to uncomfortable symptoms all year, from runny noses to headache from congested sinuses. The right cleaning approach can create an allergen-free environment for your sensitive guests. Here’s how to do it:
Tend to Your HVAC Systems
Pollen can be sneaky, and one of its favorite places to hide is in your HVAC system and ductwork. If you can’t remember the last time you had your ductwork cleaned, now is the time to schedule a cleaning. Replacing your commercial HVAC filters will also clear out the pollen that becomes trapped there. Consider replacing it with a HEPA filter, which captures more allergens.
Get A Professional Carpet Cleaning
This time of year is perfect for spending time in the great outdoors, but unfortunately people bring the great outdoors inside. Your patrons may bring ragweed and pollen in on their clothing, shoes, and even their hair. As it falls off their bodies, it can sink into your carpet fibers and the padding underneath. Frequent vacuuming can help control the allergens, but a professional cleaning will remove the rest. Consider a steam cleaning to get all the pollen out of the carpet and keep your facility allergen-free.
Create a Regular Cleaning Schedule
The only surefire way to control pollen is by keeping to a routine cleaning schedule. This will help ensure that you’re tending to allergens before they become a major problem for your guests.
Despite the ragweed blooms, this is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Take these steps to control allergens in your facility and both you and your guests can enjoy the best the season has to offer.
