The flooring you choose helps reduce allergies symptoms
When people suffer from environmental allergies, there are many factors that tend to trigger allergic reactions, from pet dander to pollen, second-hand cigarette smoke, or mold. There’s very little you can do to reduce outside allergic factors, but inside your home, it is entirely different matter. At the end of the day, your home should be a place to relax; a safe place free from constant sneezing bursts and watery eyes. Choosing to install new, allergy-reducing hardwood flooring in your house could be the best solution.
When taking steps to allergy-proof your home, you should not overlook the floor, as it can be one of the biggest sources of allergens. The reason is that certain kinds of flooring can be the perfect breeding ground for common allergens, including mold, mildew, and dust mites. So, choosing the correct flooring for your home can make all the difference in regards to your allergies.
The best floor options for allergy-reducing are those that have low-VOC flooring materials, which are made from natural fibers with adhesive or water-based sealants.
Hardwood floor is a classic household look that is easy to clean, providing you with a dust and hair-free surface. However, you need to be careful on how to choose it, as many hardwood sealants and finishes contain VOC-emitting and some other chemicals that could further aggravate your allergies. Water-based polyurethane or resealed hardwood makes for a low-VOC, worry-free fix.
Whether you decide to go with engineered hardwood or prefinished floorings, there are lots of options to reduce allergens within your home.
