Allergy sufferers and carpet CAN live together
You don't have to settle for hard surface flooring if you have allergies. Instead, you can enjoy the comfort, warmth, and homey ambiance that carpet flooring brings to a home. Once you begin comparison shopping, you'll find brands that are labeled 'allergy friendly' and 'hypoallergenic.'
Look no further than Braid Flooring & Window Fashions for the trendiest carpet in Saskatoon, SK. We offer various styles, including many that will make an allergy sufferer happy! A virtual consultation and estimate are complimentary, so it's easy to get started with your flooring upgrade.
Wool carpet flooring
While wool carpeting is more costly than those made of synthetic fibers, it's a good investment since wool is naturally hypoallergenic. A wool carpet acts like a natural filter that absorbs dust mites, bacteria, and airborne contaminants like cooking fumes and cleaning agents. This natural fiber even absorbs volatile organic compounds or VOCs.
Standard synthetic carpet flooring brands contain VOCs, but VOC-free brands are constructed without these chemical compounds. Typically, fibers used to make this type of carpeting don't absorb moisture, which helps to prevent the growth of allergens and bacteria. Further, construction provides good airflow, so dust and dirt are released when the rug is vacuumed.
Some manufactured fibers like nylon, olefin, and triexta are naturally mold- and mildew-resistant. Triexta, used for the SmartStrand carpet brand, is made with corn glucose and petroleum. This contrasts with typical petroleum-only carpet construction. Regardless of your choice of carpet flooring, contaminants are kept to a minimum with a vacuum cleaner that includes HEPA filtration.
