Pet Allergies and Flooring Solutions

By Kirsten Kapsin, (290 words) Posted in Friendly Flooring on October 27, 2008
There are (83) comments permalink

If you're a pet owner, you may notice you feel more congested when at home with your pets. This is most likely a result of your pet's dander. Pet dander includes pet waste, saliva and skin flakes. Some pet owners have pet dander sensitivity and may not even realize it.

So, how do you cope with pet dander? Flooring is one of the largest surfaces in your home, and most likely where your pet spends most of his/her time - so this is a good place to start.

Some floor types resist pet dander better than others. Linoleum, laminate, hardwood, tile, concrete and cork discourage pet matter from taking root. When selecting flooring for your home, verify that it's made without the addition of harmful chemicals (VOCs), as these may provoke an allergic reaction.

Carpet can be a haven for dander. Generally comprised of textured pile fibers, carpet tends to hold onto pet debris better than hard surface flooring. Some allergy experts believe these characteristics can actually make carpet more effective at preventing an allergic reaction than floors such as hardwood and tile. The more dander the carpet holds on to, the less airborne allergens in circulation; which potentially means less sniffling and sneezing.

If you decide to keep or install carpet in your home, make sure you vacuum regularly with a vacuum that has a built-in High Efficiency Particular Air (HEPA) filter. A HEPA filter is designed to absorb approximately 99.97% of all airborne allergens and pollutants. Also, try to select a vacuum that has a tightly packed filtration system (bag) as this can help minimize the amount of allergens expelled back into the air.

If you have any other suggestions or tips for allergy-friendly flooring, feel free to post them to this blog!

Make sure to use the HEPA filter. It works better than others. It's the only kind I use. I tend to find more dander on my couches rather than my carpet because i vacuum all the time. The best way to get the dander out of your couches and eventually the air as well is to steam clean it every couple of months. I used to steam clean my couches, area rugs, and carpets so much from my 4 cats (Stanley Steamer does a great job!!) that I actually invested in a Bissel Steam Cleaner from Home Depot. It was about $175.00 on sale. well worth the money to be able to do it myself instead.

Triston Degato posted on: April 13, 2009

I agree with you Brenna. I came across the bills one day on how much I spend to have my carpets and couches cleaned. it was preposterous. I couldn't believe it. I too use a HEPA filter. But I also suggest to anyone who has kitties, or dogs to get a carpet cleaner with the attachments to maneuver over to the couches or chairs anywhere your pets can go. Its a smart and practical investment for your carpets. Unless you install something hypoallergenic like vinyl or cork which is can get more expensive so... whatever you all prefer!

Are you allergic to pollen, pet dander, dust or mites? Perhaps you have allergy sensitivity to certain insects and insect waste. It's important you discover the source of your allergies so you can choose flooring that may help keep those allergies to a minimum. -Instant Tax Solutions Scam

Carl posted on: March 13, 2012

This is also true with pollen and other allergens. People with pet allergies will be grateful that you have a flooring solution that doesn't lock these in. | lead generation
