IS CARPET BAD FOR ALLERGIES?

Allergies are an annoying fact of life and impact almost every decision or action including choosing the right flooring for your home. You might think hardwood floors are better for allergies and many think that carpet is bad for allergies but we want to set the record straight.

If you are researching what type of floor is best for allergies, you might find arguments that carpet is dirty and home to several allergens and carpet mold and that hardwood floor doesn’t have that problem.

It is true that you will find several allergens in carpet, but we don’t think that’s a bad thing. Think about it, would you rather have allergies in your carpet or in the air you breathe in your home?

Dust, dander and other allergens in the air will eventually float and settle and land on your carpet. After the allergens touch the carpet fibers they are trapped there for good. The allergens won’t recirculate back into the air again.

You can vacuum to remove the allergens and you can schedule San Antonio carpet cleaning services to eliminate the dander and dust and dirt that is deeper in the carpet fibers.

Now, this isn’t true for hardwood floors. The dust and dander and allergens will float in the air and will land on the hardwood floor. But then it won’t be too long until the allergens float into the air again because the hardwood floor and its smooth surface won’t trap the allergens.

The choice is between hardwood floors and the allergens in the air or carpet and the allergens in the carpet because allergens in your home are inevitable.
