Is It A Cold Or Allergies in Sacramento?

A Cold Or Allergies

Is it a cold or is it allergies?  That seems to be the big question, especially this time of year. With all the plants blooming and pollen levels rising, it can be difficult to figure out if you have allergies or simply, a cold.   Let’s take a look at the key differences.

If you have a cold you can exhibit the following symptoms:

  • A fever. It can occur with a very bad cold.
  • Body aches.
  • It last 7-10 days


  • Itchy watery eyes
  • Eczema- this can develop due to an allergy
  • It will last several weeks.

Common traits to both a cold and allergies:

  • Runny nose
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Conjunctivitis

When you have allergies, it is a good idea to have your carpets, rugs and upholstery cleaned. They are big filters that will trap allergens, exposing you over and over to them. That is not good for you.   The same for colds, do you want your surfaces to hold the germs and re-infect you and your family?  This is why it is crucial to have your surfaces cleaned on a regular basis.

Here at The Specialists we use an all-natural cleaning solution. It is salt based and made with food grade ingredients. It is safe enough to drink! (but we don’t recommend it as it wouldn’t taste good at all) That is how safe our products are to use in your home, with your loved ones.

The traditional carpet cleaning process is to spray volatile chemicals like Dipropylene Glycol Monomethyl Ether, Ethylene Glycol Butyl Ether and Glycol Monomethyl Ether (just to name a few) on the carpet to loosen dirt, clean with soapy chemicals to wash the dirt out, and then use carcinogenic substances to rinse the previous chemicals.  The outcome is overly processed carpet filled with sticky chemical residue that will attract soil quickly.  This is really a process that uses chemicals to rinse out the chemicals.  How healthy could that be?

So how can this really work you may ask.

The Specialists All-Natural de-greasers and water softeners dissolve and emulsify contaminants and soil. Particulates that are not rinsed out dry to a crystallized form allowing easy removal with a good vacuum cleaner. This will leave no soapy, sticky, residue in your carpets. The Specialists’ All-Natural Cleaning Process and cleansers break down old soap and chemical residues left behind by previous cleaners.

It is healthier for the environment.  Think about it, what would rather have rinsed into the environment, all the nasty chemicals from traditional cleaners or the all-natural, salt-based cleaning solution?

Our process also will not give you that nasty smell you normally smell after a traditional cleaning.  Your home will smell fresh and clean, with no perfume scents either, just clean air.

From Davis to El Dorado Hills, Folsom, Granite Bay, Lincoln and all points in between, we are here to help keep your home looking beautiful. Be sure to check out our  before and after gallery to see our work.
