Are allergens in your business location making your patrons uncomfortable? Many businesses don’t even realize the answer is yes. Seasonal allergens can affect your customers in surprising ways – from scratchy skin to sneezing. Professional Surface Restoration’s cleaning services can help you provide a better experience for them that can mean more business for you.
How Do Allergens Affect Your Business?
For many people, seasonal allergies are an unfortunate side effect of the beautiful greenery the area experiences. Pollen consists of millions of tiny grains, often visible as a yellow dusting on outdoor surfaces such as vehicles, buildings, and sidewalks. A person allergic to pollen has an immune reaction to pollen grains, with their bodies treating intruding pollen as an invader, releasing histamines that cause runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, and more.
Many assume that allergy sufferers can escape indoors. Dust is a serious one for many. Unfortunately, common allergens can sneak into even climate-controlled buildings, making allergy sufferers uncomfortable. If your patrons or employees experience discomfort while in your place of business, allergens could be hurting your bottom line.

How Can You Prevent Allergens From Affecting Your Business?
You may think that maintaining an excellent HVAC system means that allergens are not entering your business. Although climate control is one means of preventing allergens from circulating in your building, most pollen enters your business through one means of transportation – your customers’ and employees’ shoes. From there, pollen can embed itself into carpet fibers or form a fine layer on hard-surface floors, affecting allergy sufferers long after pollen season is over.
At home, many people rely on residential carpet sprays, chemicals, and shoe-removal rules to prevent and treat the tracking in of pollen and other allergens. However, in the business world, asking patrons to remove their shoes is simply unfeasible, and the use of heavily perfumed cleaners can actually make allergies worse.
In the end, regular carpet cleaning and hard-surface floor maintenance from PSR is the best way to remove allergens from your business’s floors and ensure your space is comfortable for patrons and employees alike.
