Carpeting is a good floor covering for your home if there is an allergy sufferer in the household. Carpet brands range from hypoallergenic to some extent to those that help reduce allergens.
Bayland Flooring in Green Bay, Wisconsin, offers a wide selection of carpet flooring that is perfect for homeowners who want to keep dust and allergens to a minimum.
A study conducted by Airmid Healthgroup, a biomedical research group, found that all types of allergens levels were lower in the air over carpet than over hard surface flooring, so yes, allergies and carpeting go together.
In addition, the study makes it clear that when dust and allergens settle in a carpet, they stay there until the floor is vacuumed rather than circulating in the air.
Wool is a luxurious fiber with natural hypoallergenic properties that absorb airborne contaminants, dust mites, and bacteria.
Moreover, wool carpet keeps a home's moisture levels balanced, and allergens multiply at a lower rate when the humidity stays down. Specifically, wool absorbs excess moisture in the air and then releases it when the air is drier.
Carpet floor covering constructed with synthetic fibers is easy to clean, so it's also easy to remove allergens. For example, olefin carpet is mold and mildew-resistant, and generally, it's available in simple to vacuum low pile styles.
Likewise, triexta and polyester naturally repel mold, mildew, and water, while durable nylon traps allergens, so they stay out of the air.
