Allergy Free Home for Kids

It's important to maintain an allergy-free home when you have kids. Choosing a floor that contains a safe level of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is one way in promoting healthier indoor air quality. VOCs are often used in the manufacture of floors and flooring materials and can be hazardous to one's health as well as the environment. They are known to cause allergy symptoms such as a runny nose, throat and eye irritation, and headaches. All in all, not an ideal environment for your kids to grow up in!

Floors that are hypoallergenic naturally resist common household allergens such as dust mites, pollen and pet dander. Hypoallergenic floor types include bamboo, linoleum, cork, hardwood, tile and synthetic rubber. Cork and linoleum are not only hypoallergenic, they're also resilient. This means that they bounce back upon impact and are softer underfoot compared to concrete, and some tile and stone types. Cork and linoleum flooring also offers a higher level of slip resistance and can be relatively easy to maintain.

Floor cleaning products can also contain ingredients that can aggravate allergies. Instead of maintaining your floors with harsh conventional cleaners, choose a green cleaner that is made with natural ingredients. Discover suitable floor types for your kids by referring to FindAnyFloor.com's kid flooring section.

I've been doing a lot of research about allergies and flooring and kid friendly flooring. There seems to be a lot of controversy over hypoallergenic carpet versus hard surface flooring types. I much prefer carpet but think my carpet is part of the problem with my kid's allergies. Has anyone tried any of the Mohawk carpets? They claim to be hypoallergenic. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
