In the winter, the temperatures often plummet to levels that you would suspect would bring an end to all summer pollens and thus seasonal allergies. However, millions of people actually suffer from what we call winter allergies and these are due to the allergens found in the home and the fact that more time is spent in the home during this time.
The forced-air furnaces in homes often contain lint, bacteria, dust mite debris, food materials and animal dander. Some of the most common indoor allergens are house dust mites, pet dander and cockroach excrement. These allergens are worse in the winter usually because there is less ventilation. With less ventilation in the home, the furnace blower continually recirculates tainted air.

I found it interesting how you brought up that carpets can easily trap dampens and dander which can cause mold and dust mites. That is disgusting and I have no idea when was the last time I had someone clean my carpet. I'll have a professional come over this weekend and deep clean the whole carpet for me.
Carpets can definitely be cesspools for impurities such as dust mites and pet dander, which makes it important to have your carpets cleaned at least once per year. Careful though...many people will try to clean their carpets themselves without the help of a professional, which can cause the roots of their carpet to remain wet and retain moisture due to using the wrong equipment and method. This retained moisture can cause issues such as mold and carpet warping. Thanks for sharing this info about allergies, very important to consider in these next few months of 2020!
