3 Common Allergens Found in Your Carpets

1. Dust Mites

Dust mites live in carpets and feed off the dead skin shed by people and animals alike. However, it really isn’t the mite that causes your allergy and asthma symptoms. Unfortunately, and grossly, it’s their excrement (poop). Dust mites have an enzyme in their gut that remains in the excrement. This enzyme is a major contributor to allergy symptoms like wheezing.

2. Pollen:

Pollen causes allergies for a lot of people and can worsen asthma symptoms as well. It can get tracked in on clothing, shoes, pets and come in through open doors and windows. As we walk over our carpets the pollen can get ground in and trapped or kicked up into the as we step.  

3. Pet Dander:

You may be thinking that your allergies come from your pet’s hair. However, it comes from a protein in the skin, feces and urine of your pet! Dander does change based on species and more people have reported having worse allergies and asthma symptoms in homes with cats versus homes with dogs.

Lastly there is house dust, which is a concoction of suffering for our respiratory afflicted friends. House dust contains dead skin cells, hair, dander, dust mites and their excrement, mold, pollen and more.
