Allergies and Your Carpets

So many of us suffer from allergies, asthma, and skin irritations. It is often thought that people in any of these situations should avoid having any carpet in their home at all. Although it is true that in some cases, carpets can contribute to an allergy issue, the important thing is that you are choosing carpets that are a good fit for the health of the home and your family.

What are some of the best carpets for allergy sufferers? 

#1 Wool. Wool carpets are a great option as they are hypoallergenic and a tough and durable material. Wool carpets will trap many allergens within the pile of the carpet and prevent them from being able to fly up into the air and be inhaled. Wool is also a really good option as it traps indoor pollutants and does not release them back into the air. 

All this while being naturally dirt and stain resistant.

#2 Nylon. Nylon is another great choice when considering allergies and respiratory health. 

Nylon carpets are a less expensive option and most often come in a very low pile. This means that they are very easy to keep clean. Nylon carpet is resistant to moisture, mold, and mildew.

This keeps allergens at bay by making them a piece of cake to remove from the fibers.

With this information in mind, no matter what kind of carpet you have in your home it is always important to have them professionally cleaned on a regular basis, specially with allergies in the home, to ensure that your family and your home are at their healthiest.

Last Words

Choose carefully when deciding what type of carpets to install in your home. Make sure you are making an educated decision that will be beneficial for you and your household.
