Why Are Wood Floors Good For Those With Allergies?

Spring is here, and with it, allergy sufferers worst nightmare: pollen. The sight of a the coat of yellow pollen blanketing everything outdoors is enough to make one want to move to the desert or the tundra. As you walk through this yellow pollen blanket you’re picking it up on your shoes and clothes and bringing it into your house. You thought it was your refuge, your sanctuary from pollen, but no, you’ve brought the enemy into your own house by your own means.

Pollen doesn’t play fair, but there are methods you can use to combat its trickery. Specifically, wood flooring. How does a floor help in this situation? Well, the pollen gets into your home on your shoes and clothes no matter what. However, with wood flooring, it sits on top and remains there, easily cleaned with a cloth. Carpet, on the other hand, harbors your foe in its deep fibers, and the more you walk on it, the deeper the pollen gets ground into the carpet. Cleaning a wood floor is much quicker and efficient than cleaning a carpet, so it’s easy to get that pollen out of there. The same goes for other allergy-provoking substances like dust and pet dander. Easily swept off the wood floor, but not so much for the carpet. So, if you’ve got allergies, wood flooring is the way to go.
