tipsallergy_elnurWinters are hard on those of us with allergies. Anyone with allergies to dust, mold, or pet dander can attest. We spend more time indoors with our dust, mold, and furry friends. At Floor Coverings International NW Dallas, we help Irving families with their flooring needs. Many of our customers ask us about the best flooring options for folks with allergies. Here are some tips for making sure your floors aren’t making you sniffle.

Vacuum

When it comes to relieving allergy symptoms, there is nothing more important than keeping your spaces free of allergens. Vacuuming can remove dust and other contaminants from your floors where they collect. This is especially important for rooms with wall-to-wall carpeting.

Deep Clean

You should deep clean your carpets once per year to remove particles that settle deep in your carpet’s fibers. Consumer grade steam cleaners can be rented from your local home improvement store, but it is worth it to invest in professional cleaning services because it will extend the life of your carpeting.

Clean the Air

Air filtration systems equipped with HEPA filters have been shown to reduce the number of dust particles in the air. Consider investing in an air filter for the places you spend the most time: your bedroom or perhaps your desk. Dust mites are living organisms that thrive in moisture rich environments like basements and bathrooms. Consider using a dehumidifier to stifle their growth.
