Let Parkers Help You Battle Your Summer Allergies

For many, the summer months can be made unbearable by seasonal allergies.  That means itchy eyes, runny nose, coughing, sneezing—you name it.  It isn’t fun.  To cope, allergy sufferers take nasal sprays, antihistamines, and anything else that they can get their hands on to get relief.  However, these are only temporary solutions and many allergy sufferers often complain that their antihistamines lose effectiveness after a matter of weeks, forcing them to switch between a number of different medications.  This can be expensive and frustrating.

To really tackle seasonal allergies head on, you’ve got to take a closer look at your environment and focus on preventative measures.  This means not just running around the backyard with a weed-whacker (though that might also make you feel better), but keeping your house clean and allergen free.

While you might think that simply staying indoors is the answer, our homes can actually trap outdoor allergens and intensify their affects.  The air inside your home can often contain higher levels of pollen and other irritating allergens than the air outside.  Without proper cleaning and ventilation, it accumulates.  So, if being a hermit was your strategy, you’re out of luck.

That’s where we come in.

For starters, it’s important to clean your bedding regularly and effectively.  We clean bed linens, duvets, and pillows, so bring them in—or better yet use our free pickup and delivery service!

Rugs can also be hotspots for allergens so it’s important to have them cleaned frequently as well.  We clean area rugs using our Host® dry extraction system, which is both environmentally friendly and non-toxic.  The last thing you want to do is clean with overly powerful chemicals, as they too can contribute to poor indoor air quality.  If you’re worried about a rug being too big, don’t fret—did we mention that we offer free pickup and delivery?  Well, it’s not just for clothes, we pickup rugs and clean them in our offsite plant.

Carpets, drapes, and upholstered items also trap allergens so they too should be cleaned regularly.  Wouldn’t it be great if your dry cleaner could come to your house and take care of that too?  We now offer in-home cleaning services in partnership with Yorkville Carpet Care.

A clean home is a happy home—let Parkers help keep it allergen free!
