CRI releases cleaning brochure
The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) has released Cleaning the Air in Your Home: A Guide to Safely Minimizing Allergens, a brochure addressing the importance of proper home cleaning, to national publications, including women's and health and fitness magazines. The brochure is also available in doctor's offices.
In the brochure, CRI and Dr. Mary Lasley, M.D., an expert in allergy and immunology, suggest ways to reduce allergens in the home, such as vacuuming, dusting and mopping smooth-surface floors once a week and increasing housecleaning. She also suggests running the air conditioning systems regularly.
To receive a brochure, ask your allergist or immunologist or call CRI at (800) 882-8846.
