There are several good reasons why a carpet installation is a good choice for those with respiratory problems. Today, carpet mills are coming up with more and more innovations.
There's something for everyone, including hypoallergenic, sustainable, and kid-and-pet friendly versions. In our showroom alone, you'll see various styles and fibers from brands like Godfrey Hirst, Engineered Floors-Dream Weaver, Dixie Home, and more.
It’s been proven by studies
Allergy and asthma symptoms improve with carpet. The Carpet and Rug Institute has also developed its Green Label Plus program, a trade organization among mills. This program identifies carpet flooring and accessories that meet indoor air quality regulations, such as adhesives and cushions.
Most rugs are inherently hypoallergenic
Carpets are one of the lowest emitters of Volatile Organic compounds (VOCs), harmful substances that exacerbate respiratory problems.
They also trap pollutants instead of letting them circulate in the air to breathe. While vacuuming gets the surface dirt, all the rest stays into the fibers until the rug is deep cleaned.
This makes it act as an air filter of sorts. The result is a carpet installation with improved indoor air quality.
Modern technology increases capabilities
These days, mills are coming up with innovations that create hypoallergenic versions. They emit low or no VOCS (Volatile Organic Compounds) and eliminate chemicals and toxins.
These include rugs, fibers, and cushions from Mohawk, Godfrey Hirst, Engineered Floors-Dream Weaver, and Dixie Home. Stop by our carpet store in Nashville, TN for more information.
Synthetic fibers and mold misconceptions
As long as they’re clean, synthetic rugs like nylon, olefin, triexta, and polyester repel mold, moisture, and mildew. Additionally, most either have natural antibacterial properties or are treated with an antibacterial coating such as Microban.
