If you’re one of the millions of Americans who suffer from asthma or allergies, then you know how important it is to keep a clean and dust-free home to help prevent asthma and allergy symptoms from developing. Vacuuming, mopping and dusting regularly throughout your home can help to keep allergy and asthma symptoms at bay, but it may not be enough. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), floors should be cleaned by an AAFA Certified professional three to four times a year to help remove dust mites, pet dander and other allergens from your home.
About The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) is a not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1953 to help improve the quality of life for those who suffer from asthma or allergies.

They provide community-based services and information through their network of nationally-recognized chapters, providing help to allergy and asthma sufferers all across the United States.
What does it mean to be AAFA Certified?
The AAFA runs the Asthma and Allergy-Friendly Certification Program, which was created by them as well as top medical experts to help Americans make informed decisions when it comes to purchasing products and services marketed to aid in asthma or allergy relief. When a company or product is AAFA Certified, you can be sure that the product or service was thoroughly tested for efficacy and determined to be a suitable solution for asthma or allergy sufferers. An AAFA Certified product can help contribute to an overall cleaner and healthier home, making life with allergies and asthma more manageable.
