According to researchers, about 50 million U.S. residents are affected by nasal allergies. So when we say that different types of flooring often play a huge role in determining how bad a person’s allergies can get, we’re talking about a lot of people.
In this issue, we’ll talk about the best types of flooring for people with allergies.
In many cases, these are the go-to choice for people with allergies. They’re easy to clean and maintain, and with just a bit of routine upkeep, they trap far less dust, mold, and pollen than other types of flooring.
To make sure hardwood floors remain an uninviting place for allergens, keeping hardwood free of dust bunnies and other debris is essential.
Another popular choice for people with allergies, many types of vinyl floors can actually be made with antibacterial agents and other materials that will reduce the effect of allergens on the floor.
It’s essential, though, to speak with a professional because some of the preventative materials can cause negative reactions on their own.
While carpets can and will trap a host of allergens like dust, microscopic mold, and pollen, the trade-off is that those allergens aren’t flying freely around your house.
These days, since most carpets are made of hypoallergenic materials, any trapped allergens are prevented from multiplying or reproducing in the carpet itself.
Keep this in mind: the more tightly woven a carpet is, the better job it will do in reducing reactions to allergens in the room.
TILE & LAMINATE FLOORS
This hard-surfaced flooring is yet another great option for people with allergies. Like hardwood and vinyl flooring, tile and laminate floorings are easy to clean. The only hiccup, though, is a tendency for this type of flooring to peel or bend with increased humidity.
