ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- From pollen to dust mites, spring brings many problems for those who suffer from allergies. Stanley Steemer is now independently certified to reduce discomfort from allergies by effectively eliminating many of their causes.
Stanley Steemer is the first carpet cleaner to be certified by the Asthma and Allergy foundation of America (AAFA) and are able to remove an average of 94% of common household allergens from carpets including dust, pollen and pet dander. Many of those allergy sufferers stay indoors when outdoor air is full of pollen and spores, but dust mites and animal dander can cause problems indoors, as well.
"Early spring is a great time to get ahead of the allergy season before it really makes your life miserable," pointed out Paul McCann, local Stanley Steemer franchise owner. "Allergy and asthma control can begin at home with a complete cleaning of all your carpets, rugs and air ducts. By getting rid of dust mites and animal dander, you can make this allergy season a much more tolerable one."
The Certification Program independently tests consumer products and services against standards set forth by AAFA's partner in the program, Allergy Standards Limited, a physician led global certification company. To achieve the asthma & allergy friendly™ certification, Stanley Steemer's Professional Cleaning process underwent a rigorous course of testing to evaluate the levels of air and surface allergens before and after the carpet cleaning process as well as the content of their cleaning chemicals.
