What is the best flooring option for people with allergy issues?
By Brian Berson,
There’s a popular myth that carpet makes asthma and allergy symptoms worse; however, the opposite is true.
Research has shown that carpet acts as an air filter, trapping allergens so they can’t circulate in the air. In fact, in one study where carpet use was reduced by 70%, allergic reactions increase by 30%. If you properly clean and maintain your carpet, there is no better floor option to mitigate asthma and allergy issues.
