Wood Floors Help Allergy Sufferers
Allergy season can be a nightmare for millions of people who suffer from the condition. However, there are ways for sufferers to cut down on the chances of having attacks – and solid wood floors can be a key weapon in the battle against allergies, according to many different experts in the field.
Solid wood flooring, particularly solid wood flooring which has undergone dustless floor sanding, is easier to keep clean than many other different forms of flooring, which means that dust mites and various other different forms of allergens do not have places to hide and irritate the condition of sufferers, unlike other forms of flooring such as carpets. This makes solid wood flooring the best possible choice for most sufferers, meaning that wood floors now have another reason to be so very popular, in addition to other well known factors such as their renowned style and elegance and their incredible durability. With most floors likely to last for several decades providing they are properly looked after, they can both add value to a home and make it much easier to sell, as testified to by numerous estate agents.
The installation of solid wood flooring is not the only tip that allergy sufferers can follow in order to help alleviate their condition, of course. Other well regarded tips include avoiding having upholstered furniture in the home, as that too traps dust mites and other likely allergens, and install blinds or curtains to cut down on dirt coming in via the window.
