When seasonal and chronic allergies rear their ugly head, life at home can be a struggle. It’s a constant dilemma for many: an estimated 50 million Americans cope with allergies annually. What if we told you that you don’t have to choose between a clean, healthy environment and a gorgeous, stylish home?
At Alexanders Carpet One Floor & Home of Corpus Christi, TX, we care about you, your home, and your well-being. That’s why we’re always on the hunt for the latest flooring innovations that can help you love the space you’re living in, minus the sneezing and sniffling.
If you suffer from allergies, you might be surprised to hear that there are many allergy-friendly flooring options to consider. Among the most popular choices are low-pile carpeting, solid hardwood, ceramic tile, and linoleum. Such options are generally less porous, meaning they’re way less likely to collect mold, dander, dust, and other everyday allergy offenders. These floors are also relatively easy to keep clean. Natural hardwood flooring is particularly beneficial to an allergy-prone household, as studies have indicated that this flooring family is less likely to harbor daily allergens. Additionally, cork and bamboo are naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and bacteria growth.
Allergy-friendly floors are designed to stay cleaner for longer. Having a floor that’s less porous means you won’t have to use as much “elbow grease” when cleaning your hard surfaces. Many of these options also have lower amounts of VOCs, which mean fewer toxins within your home. Short version: these floors are not only healthy for your body, but they’re ultimately healthier for the entire planet!
