A comfortable, stylish, carpet is one of the best tools in your home to battle allergies and asthma. You may have heard that carpeted flooring is a poor option for individuals with respiratory difficulties, however, you may be surprised to learn, that relevant data refutes this. It even suggests that properly maintained carpeted flooring can help reduce allergies and encourage good health.
One of the most comprehensive studies on this subject is a fifteen-year long Swedish study that was conducted at a time in which carpet usage was down 70 percent. During this time allergy symptoms, in the same area of Sweden, increased by 30 percent. (United Allergy Services Blog)
A 2003 study conducted in New Jersey found that children that live in carpeted homes miss fewer days of school and require less asthma medication.
Carpet acts like a filter for all of the allergies that collect in a home or business. Dust, pollen, and pet dander become trapped in the carpet fibers. A regular routine of vacuuming and shampooing will keep these allergies from building up and save you from their effects.
It is very important to consider your health when making any purchase. A good carpet is the best defense against allergens and their effects. The notion that carpeted floors provide a haven for dust mites, pollen, and pet dander has been disproved. Carpets can act as a filter that holds on to these allergens and allows for easy cleanup.
