ALLERGY SUFFERERS AND INDOOR AIR VENTILATOR
There is no reason why asthmatic or allergy sensitive people should not enjoy the comfort and good looks of a fully carpeted home.
Asthma and Allergies:
A misperception is that people with asthma and allergies should avoid carpet in the home. Actually, the opposite is true. Studies have shown that properly cleaned carpet helps reduce symptoms and is the best flooring choice for those dealing with asthma and allergies.
Mold and VOC misperceptions:
When carpet is kept clean and dry, mold simply cannot grow on synthetic fibers. Carpet is recognized as one of the lowest emitters of VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) among various flooring choices and interior finishes. The Carpet and Rug Institute’s Green Label Plus Indoor Air Quality Standard identifies carpet, adhesive and cushion products that meet or exceed government indoor air quality regulations and are the lowest emitting products on the market.
