Allergic asthma affects millions in the US, and asthma attacks are triggered by allergens that are commonly found in typical households. The best course of action for those suffering allergic asthma is to avoid the allergens, or have them removed from the home.

Designing Spaces reaches out to Justin Bates, the third generation President of Stanley Steemer, to help homeowner Heather and her daughter combat their allergies by giving the carpets a professional cleaning. Stanley Steemer offers a Certified Asthma and Allergy Friendly Carpet Cleaning Service, a certification issued by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. After the carpet is professionally cleaned, Heather and her daughter not only breathe easier, the carpet looks practically new. Stanley Steemer is still family-owned, and the biggest carpet-cleaning company in the nation.
