Carpets and upholstery are common sources of indoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution is a leading cause of respiratory illnesses, such as asthma and allergies. Dust mites, pet dander, mold, and other allergens can become trapped in carpets and upholstery, causing symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes. Regular vacuuming and professional cleaning can help reduce the amount of indoor air pollution in your home.I got a good amount of postings in this blog. Thank you so much for sharing this blog.
