During a fun-filled morning for families with food allergies, asthma and other allergic diseases, kids danced to an interactive performance by entertainers Lolly & YoYo and were mesmerized by the Magicians and Illusionists Kyle and Kelly. And who better to make the Strides for Safe Kids food allergy event even more fun and energetic than the lovable Phillie Phanatic – the official mascot of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Families had access to free samples from allergy-friendly businesses and learned all about the companies that offer certified asthma & allergy friendly™ products and services.
Families won amazing raffle products and services thanks to the following Certified companies:
Early spring we announced that Stanley Steemer’s new Tile and Grout and Hardwood Floor Cleaning Services passed testing to be Certified asthma & allergy friendly®. That is every floor in your home—carpet, tile and grout, and hardwood—that can now benefit from a Certified asthma & allergy friendly® professional cleaning service.
But Stanley Steemer goes beyond services. They may be known for their carpet, tile and grout, and hardwood floor cleaning services, but they also have cleaning products that families like yours can use at home for regular maintenance.
One of those products is even Certified asthma & allergy friendly®. The Carpet and Upholstery Spot Remover recently passed testing for cleaning products.
Just last week we announced that Stanley Steemer’s Tile & Grout Cleaning Service is now Certified asthma & allergy friendly®. Now they’ve gone a step further to earn Certification for their Hardwood Floor Cleaning Service as well!
Now every floor in your home—carpet, tile and grout, and hardwood—can benefit from a Certified asthma & allergy friendly® professional cleaning service to reduce allergens and irritants from your home’s floors.
We always talk about how important it is to regularly vacuum and deep-clean your carpets with Certified asthma & allergy friendly® products and services to maximize allergen reduction in your home. Carpets are a common home to dirt, dust mites, pollen, and sometimes even mold. But did you know carpet may not be the only culprit hiding these allergens?

But the National Institutes of Health advises us to use more than one approach for effective allergen avoidance and control. (It can never be simple, can it?) So in addition to vacuuming once or twice a week, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) recommends having a Certified professional carpet cleaning three to four times a year.
Allergen avoidance and control can seem difficult, but the Certification Program does its best to make it as simple as possible for you through testing and certifying products and services. Only Certified asthma & allergy friendly™ products and services—like Stanley Steemer’s Carpet Cleaning Service—are scientifically proven to be more suitable for those with asthma and allergies. So when you see the Certification Mark alongside the Stanley Steemer name, you know their carpet cleaning service passed rigorous testing.
In fact, Stanley Steemer’s Carpet Cleaning Service is Certified because it is scientifically proven to considerably reduce your exposure to allergens. But there’s still more to it. A professional carpet steam cleaning service must meet strict standards during testing when:
