Allergy sufferers often wonder whether to choose hardwood floor or carpet for their home. Some believe that hardwood floor is better for allergies. But is carpet bad for allergies?

In reality, carpet is good for allergies. Why?

There are several allergens that live in our homes. There is dander and dust and there are toxins and contaminants and most of these allergens circulate through the air in our home.

Eventually the allergens will float down to the surface or floor of a home. If the floor of the home is hardwood, then it won’t be too long until the allergens get caught in a brush of air and return to floating around in the air you breathe.

If the floor in your home is carpet this will not happen. The allergens will float down to the carpet and then will be trapped there for good. The allergens will not recirculate into the air again.

Carpet acts as a very large filter on the floor of your home. Anything that reaches your carpet is trapped in the fibers until you vacuum the carpet or hire professional Sacramento carpet cleaners to clean it.

Allergy sufferers would much rather have allergens trapped in their carpet than circulating through the air they breathe, right?

Even better, carpet cleaning can permanently remove allergens from a home.
