Dust Allergies and Flooring Solutions

By Kirsten Kapsin, (258 words) Posted in Friendly Flooring on October 27, 2008
There are (62) comments permalink

"Household dust" is a general term that refers to particles such as skin flakes, human and animal hair, textile fibers, pet dander and pollen. Dust is known to aggravate hay fever, so if you have allergy sensitivity to pollen, make sure to choose a flooring type that can combat both.

While some floor types resist dust, others hold on to dust and allow it to accumulate, which can make for difficult cleaning. Compared to other types of flooring, carpet can be very difficult to maintain. Many of the elements found in household dust tend to cling to carpet, creating a less clean surface. Dust build-up tends to be visible on hard-surface flooring such as hardwood and tile, whereas on carpet, allergen matter can go unnoticed for weeks at a time. If you have carpet and want to keep the dust in your home to a minimum, consider investing in a vacuum with a High-Efficiency Particle Air (HEPA) filter. HEPA filters are designed to absorb approximately 99.97% of all airborne pollutants.

If you desire flooring that maintains a cleaner and more dust-free surface, choose a hypoallergenic floor that can resist the most common household allergens. Great choices for the allergy sufferer include cork, bamboo, some tile types, hardwood, linoleum and concrete. Make sure any floor type you choose is produced and installed without using materials, sealers or adhesives that contains VOCs*.

*VOCs or volatile organic compounds, are carbon-based chemical compounds that can cause allergy irritations, asthma and even increase cancer risk.

Going from carpet to linoleum did wonders for my allergies. I didn't realize how much I was suffering until I finally wasn't.

Breanna Kilmmer posted on: April 1, 2009

I also changed from carpet to a hypoallergenic floor- bamboo. I was going to put in hardwood flooring but figured everyone is going green and saving the planet why don't I? I researched bamboo history, sound rating, bamboo floor cleaners, and even found bamboo scratch repair techniques just in case! I recommend bamboo to anyone out there! even though it isn't exactly a type of wood, its a type of grass, I am a firm believer in it. It looks amazing in my home and i feel good about it. I used Teragren because it seems most popular but Im sure there are other brands out there.

I had a problem with just simple dust. Maybe that is what they called as allergies, well if you have this problem you cannot be trusted with cleaning. - JustFab
