how to get pollen out of carpets


Spring is a beautiful season full of new life, but it can also be tough for allergy sufferers. Whether you accidentally left a window open or you track it in on your shoes, pollen can attach itself to the surfaces in your home or business faster than you might imagine. And getting pollen out of porous materials like cloth and carpeting can be a tough task.

That’s why the team at Flooring by Design is happy to offer carpet cleaning services to get your home or office back to normal. Forget sneezing and watery eyes; this spring, enjoy your space thanks to safe and effective cleaning solutions! If you’re thinking about trying to remove pollen yourself, we have a few tips. But remember, if the allergens in your home become too much to handle, we can always give your carpets the deep cleaning they need. Quality carpet cleaning can make your allergy season a breeze!

Removing Pollen from Carpet

Not only can pollen make you sneeze, but its yellow dye can also stain your carpeting. If you see pollen on your floors, it’s important to remove it as quickly as possible.

Start by using tape to gently lift pollen particles from the carpet. Take care not to push the tape too hard into the carpet – you want to use a light touch to capture the pollen without rubbing the stain further into the material. If there is still pollen left, get your vacuum out and use the handheld nozzle to pick up the rest of the particles. Do NOT roll your vacuum over the pollen stain, as that will push the irritant down further into the carpet.

If that still doesn’t get all of the pollen out, consider using a dry-cleaning solvent. Be careful here, and make sure you test it in an inconspicuous area first. Work from the outside of the stain towards the middle, taking care to use a clean piece of cloth as you go to avoid spreading the stain.
