Will carpet flooring make my allergies worse?

If you struggle with allergies, you may feel conflicted when considering carpet in Bradenton, FL. But the good news is that some options make this a viable choice in rooms where beauty, comfort, and longevity are desired benefits.

When you share your information with our carpet store, we?ll work to ensure the perfect match for your upcoming remodel. Here?s what to know about carpeting and allergies.

What you should know first

It?s true that carpet flooring can trap allergens such as pollen, dust, dander, and mold spores. And over time, these particles can trigger allergy responses.

But the key is to manage their presence, no matter what carpet flooring you choose, especially with this one. It's easy to do with the right tools and processes.

Clean regularly with the right tools

A high-quality vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter is encouraged at least twice weekly to remove the allergens rumored to cause so much trouble. This step is the first in reducing allergens and not spreading them around your home.

It?s also important to take advantage of deep professional cleaning at least once every 12 months, or sooner if you have pets. Professional tools clean deeper and leave your carpet healthier, smelling fresher, and lasting longer than without it.

Low-profile carpet works well

The lower the fiber pile, the more resistant to allergies your flooring will be, offering a shorter fiber with a tighter weave. These fibers are less likely to trap particles than high-pile materials such as shag or Frieze products.

Some manufacturers make hypoallergenic products that inhibit certain allergens, giving homeowners even more relief. Browse all the available options to ensure your best results.

Prevention works well

To ensure the least allergens in your carpet, consider placing a mat at entryways to trap them before they come in any farther. Asking family and friends to remove their shoes at the door is another way to ensure allergens stay away from your flooring.
