Are allergies a concern in your life? Below you will find information to consider when selecting your next floor!

Floors for those with Allergies

One of the biggest questions homeowners may have when selecting new flooring for their home is: What about my family’s allergies!? This concern is not one that should be ignored as the new flooring you select can have a big impact on the amount of allergens that may be trapped in your home. Below are some of the best options to consider when dealing with allergies.

Hardwood Flooring

With its ease in maintenance, hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for those with allergies. Hardwood does not have the same limitations as other flooring options when it comes to trapping and holding onto allergens. It also does not have the environment that is conducive to having allergens grow.

Porcelain & Ceramic Tile

Another great option for those concerned with harboring allergens is ceramic and porcelain tile. One thing to note is that smooth surface tile is much more resistant than those with a rough surface. Specifically, polished marble and granite are two of the best choices you can make.  

Linoleum

Linoleum is also a good option for those with allergies. One of the biggest benefits to linoleum flooring is the ease of maintenance that comes with it. The flooring option holds up well to water and can easily be cleaned.

Regardless of which floor you decide is best for you, proper care and maintenance is always a necessity.
