The carpet industry in the U.S. is almost as old as the country itself. The U.S. carpet industry started off relatively small, with only 20 mills producing 1 million square yards of carpeting in 1834.

Today, the U.S. carpet industry produces 45% of the world’s carpet and all of this activity happens in Dalton, Georgia.

The carpet industry in Dalton, GA creates around $10 billion in business activity!

This also means that since the 1800’s Americans have suffered from indoor allergies. In fact, an estimated 50 million Americans today suffer from allergies that are triggered by dust mites, mold, and dander. Most of these substances can be found in your carpet.

As you well know carpet acts as a air filter for your home. It traps all of the dirt, dust, pollen, and other contaminants that would otherwise be found all over your home.

This is a blessing or a curse depending on if you suffer from allergies or not.  Keeping your carpet clean is key to keeping these contaminants at bay. This is especially important if you have small children.

Did you know that the average child can eat up to 10 grams (0.4 ounces) of dust a day!


 Is There A Way To Keep My Carpet Allergen Free?

To be honest, there isn’t a foolproof way to keep your carpet allergen free 100% of the time short of removing your wall to wall carpet altogether or near weekly professional carpet cleaning.

Both options include major tradeoffs that you would have to consider. So is there a middle way? Is there a way to keep your carpet and get rid of the allergens that come with it?

In the near future, this could become a reality. Technology in the carpet industry continues to advance and create new innovative products.


The Pipe Carpet

Dutch carpet maker Siem & Pabon are the creators of the Fervent Carpet. The Fervent Carpet  is a carpet that has braided piping the runs through the entire carpet.

These pipes connect to a heat source that circulates 140-degree water through the braided pipes.

This kills the dust mites that live in your carpet. For millions of people across the U.S. that suffer from dust mite allergy, this is a revolutionary product!

As of today, this product isn’t currently available for sale in the United States. Hopefully this will change in the future.


In The Meantime

As an indoor allergy suffer, what can you do in the meantime to keep your carpet contaminants to an absolute minimum?

Professional carpet cleaning, when combined with a vigorous vacuuming schedule will allow you to enjoy your carpet!

We highly recommend that you use a vacuum cleaner that is equipped with a High-Efficiency Particulate Air filter(HEPA). These filters will remove 99.9% of pollen, dander and dust from the air instead of recirculating it back into the air.

If you have allergies and you’re in the market for a vacuum cleaner take a look at  Consumer Report. Here are the best vacuum cleaners to buy if you have allergies.
