So you are in the market for a carpet, but you suffer from allergies. Is there a solution? Yes! There are hypoallergenic carpets that are made that you can purchase. Let’s look at your options.


Carpeting you can live with

Finding a floor covering that is hypoallergenic is getting easier and more accessible. Some manufacturers are building it into the carpet, into the fibers, at production. Other carpets have a natural hypoallergenic trait.


Take wool, for example. Wool is an excellent choice for those who suffer from allergies. Why? Because it is naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and bacteria. It also has a low moisture content. In addition, the fibers are shaped, so they make it hard for dust mites to survive.


If you have to watch your budget, then nylon might be an option for you. It has a natural mold, mildew, dirt, and moisture resistance. You want a low pile cut because they are easier to clean. In addition, they have fewer allergens like pet dander, dust, and pollen.


Here’s a tip for those living with allergy sufferers in the home: regularly vacuum the carpet to remove the dust, pollen, and dander. When getting your carpet, check the CRI rating that will tell you if the rug has withstood the testing for clean air.
