What does it mean to be Certified

All certified asthma & allergy friendlyTM products and services undergo extensive scientific testing in independent accredited laboratories to ensure that they meet the standards adopted by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. In fact, Stanley Steemer is the first carpet cleaning service to earn this certification, removing an average of 94% of common household allergens from the carpet we clean. Those common household allergens include dust, pollen and pet dander.

Allergy and asthma control begins at home. Many people with allergies stay indoors when outdoor air is full of pollen and spores, but dust mites and animal dander can also cause problems indoors.

There are some simple things you can do to prevent allergies at home

More than 40 million Americans suffer from allergy problems, and 25 million have asthma. If your cleaning routine doesn't specifically focus on allergen removal, you may be only moving dust around, sending allergens and irritating cleaning chemicals into the air which can affect allergy and asthma symptoms. To maximize your cleaning efforts to reduce allergens, consider these simple tips from AAFA’s asthma & allergy friendlyTM Certification Program.

  • Dust to control mites. By dusting surfaces and washing bedding often, you can control the amount of dust mites in your home.

  • Vacuum often. Although cleaning can sometimes trigger allergic reactions, with dust in the air, vacuuming once or twice a week will reduce the surface dust mites. Wear a mask when doing housework and consider leaving for a few hours after you clean to avoid allergens in the air. You can also make sure your vacuum has an air filter to capture dust.

  • Reduce pet dander. If you have allergies, you should avoid pets with feathers or fur like birds, dogs and cats. Animal saliva and dead skin, or pet dander , can cause allergic reactions. If you can’t bear to part with your pet, you should at least keep it out of the bedroom.

  • Shut out pollen. When you clean your windows, do you see a film of pollen on the frame or sill? One easy way to prevent pollen from entering your home is to keep windows and doors closed. Use an air filter and clean it regularly or run the air conditioner and change the filter often.
