People who suffer from allergies benefit greatly from the advantages of having hardwood flooring over carpets in their home. Wood is considered to be hypoallergenic. The smooth surfaces of wood flooring are easy to keep clean, preventing the collection of dust and particles that can aggravate allergies. Carpets can harbor dust mites, tiny little creatures that live in carpet and produce hundreds of eggs. Wood floors don’t harbor dust mites and collect dirt and pollen the way carpeting can do. This makes them an ideal selection for anyone who has to live with the sneezing, runny nose, and other symptoms commonly associated with having allergies.
If you’ve been suffering from allergies, minimize your exposure to irritating allergens by eliminating the place where they like to get comfortable and stay for the long-haul: your carpet. Removing carpet and having durable, attractive hardwood flooring installed is possibly the smartest move you can make as someone with allergy issues. It’s the easiest and simplest way to reduce the level of allergens in your home and keep it low. Dust will have nowhere to go, and pollen will have to move along, because it’s just not safe for them on a beautiful hardwood floor from Hurst Hardwoods.
In addition to being easy to keep clean, another advantage of hardwood flooring comes into play when anything is ever dropped or spilled onto the floor. Trip over the dog and drop your dinner plate? Uh-oh, that’s unfortunate. The dog is fine, but now there’s food mushed into the carpet, and possibly even tiny pieces of glass that can only be retrieved with the skin of your bare foot. These issues are non-issues when you have hardwood floors – a quick clean up and you’re back in the game!
