Carpeting has undergone some changes since the days of psychedelic shag carpets in the 1970s and is far from outdated. Today’s carpet boasts a host of thicknesses, textures, patterns and stain-resisting attributes. It provides underfoot support, cushioning for falls, reduces noise and helps insulate the rooms that have it. Despite all these advantages, there has been a stigma associated with carpet in recent years due to the fact it traps in-home allergens. Recent research has shown, however, that trapping allergens is not necessarily a bad thing.
Carpet and Allergens
Allergens are microscopic bio-pollutants including dust mites, mold spores and animal dander that trigger adverse reactions in allergy and asthma sufferers. They are present in every home, and there is no escaping their presence. Be that as it may, these pesky particles pose an allergic threat to people only if they are airborne and inhaled. Carpet helps reduce the number of allergens in the air by trapping and immobilizing them until they can be disposed of, which improves air quality. According to studies from the EPA:
The amount of allergens in the home increases in rooms with hard-surfaced floors because these flooring solutions cannot trap the particles like carpet can.
There is no correlation between allergen content in the air and carpet in the carpeted room.
Proper cleaning and maintenance allow carpeted rooms to maintain lower levels of airborne allergens than hard-surface floors.
Regardless of if you suffer from allergies or asthma, consider the benefits of having TriStar install carpet in your home!
