3 of the Best Flooring Options for People With Allergies, Barnesville, Ohio

Allergens are found everywhere in a person’s environment, including their home’s flooring. Dust mites, mold, pollen, and grass can gather in thick carpet, while some flooring materials contain high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC) that can trigger asthma and allergy symptoms. Fortunately, there are also plenty of flooring materials that can ease a resident’s allergy symptoms, such as these popular choices.

3 Flooring Materials That Are Ideal for People With Allergies

1. Tile

Whether you choose ceramic or porcelain tiles, you’ll benefit from their impervious surface, which prevents bacteria and allergens from penetrating or sticking to their surface. Because they’re water-resistant, you won’t experience mold or mildew either—two common allergies that can induce respiratory illness. 

2. Hardwood

flooringSolid woods not only look great and add value to a property, but they’re also easy to keep clean, reducing allergens in your home. The hard surface of hardwood floors makes it difficult for animal dander, pollens, and dust to collect on the surface. Instead, it can be swept and mopped away. If you’re having hardwood floors installed or refinished, speak with your flooring contractor about minimizing sanding dust.

3. Vinyl

Vinyl flooring is less expensive than hardwood and tile, but it also provides significant allergy control by being easy to clean. Choose vinyl materials labeled as low VOC and be careful of the type of adhesive your flooring contractors use. By selecting low-VOC vinyl materials, you can avoid itchy eyes, congestion, and coughing.
