Best Flooring Options for People with Allergies
Allergy-prone individuals, including asthmatics, usually shy away from fitting carpets in their home completely. However, did you know that removing carpet from your home doesn’t actually help many allergy sufferers? Carpets are known to attract the allergens that cause problems, but this can sometimes be positive because they are not in the air to provoke reactions.
To prevent dirt, dust mites, mould and pet hairs regular maintenance needs to be undertaken. This means vacuuming no less than once a week, using powerful cleaners. Most allergy-friendly carpets are those that come with the tightest and shortest pile possible, like Twist carpet, having less places to harbour allergens, dust and pollutants. Steam cleaning will also without a doubt help maintain your flooring as well as keep it looking great.
Vinyl is the most popular type of flooring for sufferers. It has a sleek and smooth surface leaving no place for dirt and dust to hide. Laminate flooring on the other hand needs no adhesives to be fitted into the area; instead it is installed with an easy click-into-place system. Both of these types of smooth flooring theoretically have fewer causes that trigger allergies.
Hard flooring is also easier to maintain than carpets, especially in high traffic areas. However, be sure to ventilate the home well during and after vacuuming as the particles will travel across your house. Dust and dirt is not retained because of their smooth surface and may be a worry but they are generally less expensive than carpet.
Please check that you are not allergic to synthetic flooring beforehand.
