ALLERGIES AND CARPET


Here are three popular “myths” that many people might actually believe:
• The Salem witches were burned
• Pigeons will blow up if your feed them uncooked rice
• Wood floors are better than carpets if you have allergies

Actually several recent studies on Allergies and Carpet have shown that quite the opposite is true.

It is because of these two separate studies, one conducted in Sweden and another by Airmid Healthgroup, that you should ensure that you are well aware of the truth concerning Allergies and Carpet. What they independently discovered is that carpet might actually significantly reduce allergens in the air. While this might be a little difficult to comprehend at first, there is actually some very understandable logic involved here.

What happens is, the carpet fibers tend to grab and hold the allergens, including everything from microbes to animal dander. In essence, when it comes to Allergies and Carpet what you have with wall-to-wall carpeting is a gigantic air filter. The fibers tend to “trap” the allergen particles and, with the help of gravity, keep them from circulating in the air. With wood flooring or hard flooring, however, every time someone walks through the room, or even with a tiny breeze, the allergens are “kicked up” and again become airborne.

Another aspect of ALLERGIES AND CARPET, Brown added, is the fact that carpet manufacturers are constantly striving to develop technology that will make their products more ‘allergy friendly’ to consumers.

One of the main ways this is accomplished is by the fact that some carpets are being “treated” to promote a reduction of allergens and improving a home’s air quality.
Further, there are products available that use silver, copper and zinc ions to bind together to battle mildew, mold, and bacteria. Applied during the manufacturing process, these products are certified to last the entire life of the carpet. (only available with Beaulieu carpet)
