How To Fight Allergies With Flooring

With the coming of a new season, and with the trees, flowers, and furry friends responding to it accordingly, it’s time for the mixed blessing of warmer weather. I say mixed, because many of us across the nation are facing the dreaded time of the year known as allergy season.

But, is there a way to combat the effects of allergies just by incorporating the right type of flooring in our homes? Here’s some  information on some popular types of floors that may help you to get through the rigors of the allergy season with a little bit of relief, just by helping you control the presence of allergens in your space, and improving the air quality by making it easier to clear spaces of things that cause allergies to begin with.

  1. I thought this was going to be an article about how terrible rugs can be. These are great. Its the air you live in, why would you not take consideration when installing flooring.

    • Thanks for comments, Bob.

      Air quality is a pretty important aspect of health, and there are many factors that affect it, for sure. The purchase of flooring, as it’s shown, is certainly one factor. This is why good communication with vendors is an important aspect of choosing floors, whether buying from BuildDirect, or any other vendor.

      Thanks again for comments!
