Your Health Is Connected to Your Floors
Dec 23, 2020
The health and safety of your family is an important priority. And when it comes to what kinds of flooring you purchase for your home, there’s a connection. Thankfully, there are many types of flooring (and overall care strategies) available, from hypoallergenic flooring options, to ways to keep your family as germ-free as possible, that can help put your family’s health first.
Kick Germs to the Curb
Keeping your home germ-free is top of mind for most folks these days. Whether you have toddlers running around, your parents living with you, or if you’re simply looking for the peace of mind of knowing you have healthy flooring, the Neutralize™ system is a great fit for your needs. Offered by many Flooring America stores, and available with any new floor installation (and also as a floor refresh!), Neutralize™ will eliminate 99.9% of viruses, including COVID-19.
Many families also struggle with the pesky—and downright stressful—issue of allergies. Hardwood floors are the perfect option if you happen to be a household of allergy sufferers. Removing dust, pet hair, and other allergens is extra easy with hardwood, and a surefire way to keep the air quality in your home clean and safe.
Dry and Dandy
The issue of extra moisture in a home is also something most people want to avoid. Fortunately, there are many flooring options available today that help with this particular headache. Flooring America, for example, has a wide selection of waterproof and water-resistant flooring options. So whether you’re in the market for waterproof and stain-resistant tile, luxury vinyl, laminate, or hardwood, you’re bound to find the right flooring fit that will keep additional moisture at bay.
Carpet manufacturing has evolved in the past few decades, and carpet is now another great fit for those looking out for the health of their family. For instance, many Flooring America stores now offer carpet options like Innovia Extreme Clean™ carpet, which is crafted using cutting-edge Innotex™—a natural-based fiber offering an incredibly plush feel. It’s also good to remember that with regular vacuuming and cleaning, carpets won’t build up dust and other allergens.
Help Is Available
Flooring materials and installation practices have come a long way, and when it comes to health concerns, many flooring manufacturers now have multiple options to fit your particular needs. Contact your local Flooring America today to learn all about their choices for healthy flooring options—as well as best practices for installation—and find the fit that’s best for you. It’s possible to have comfort, beauty, and peace of mind. You and your family deserve it.
