Allergic to Rugs? These Carpets will be perfect for you!
Allergies can be really frustrating, especially when you're not feeling well and need to take care of your home. It's easy for allergens like dust mites or pollen spores in the air around us get into our homes - even if we keep them highly cleaned! The allergens in your home can be a problem for those with respiratory problems. You might not want to know this, but you’re sending clouds of dust and pollen up into the air every time you step on your carpet or rug! It's true - no matter how careful we are about taking precautions against outside triggers like dust or pollen season (which just so happen to come inside), these particles find their way onto our floor due solely because gravity loves us more than ever before during times when things should really stay clean: between meals/naps; after playing outdoors.
The new generation of allergen-free rugs is here! This means you can finally enjoy your favorite rug without worrying about asthma attacks or allergies from floating allergens in the air. Instead, these hypoallergenic carpets are made with materials like polyester and nylon which have been commonly used for making clothes to avoid any triggers that may irritate people's respiratory systems
A few years ago I would've never thought this was an issue - but now it seems every day there’s another story on news sites across Canada discussing how someone had their life saved by medics because they inadvertently touched freshly spilled ink while sneezing. These synthetic materials are designed to keep allergens at bay. They're nonorganic fibers that provide an inhospitable climate for mold and pollen, making them perfect if you have allergies or plan on having pets in the home because they won't allow any herbivores (or humans) near these surfaces with their toxic dust bunnies!
There's no need to be disappointed when choosing a rug for your large room! Thankfully, there are so many synthetic rugs that pass the allergen test. These nylon flooring materials come in different styles and textures with colors matching any home style - this way you can find something perfect without cutting out options just because of allergies or other sensitivities
A great benefit from buying quality carpets at low prices is they last longer than imitation ones made from cheaper fibers such as polyester (which may cause allergies).
Both nylon and polyester are great choices for avoiding allergic reactions. Nylon was originally developed as a substitute for silk, so it’s soft and bright like the material but more durable than either one of these fabrics! Nylon is like the perfect balance of silk and cotton. Not only does it feel amazing against your skin, but nylon also has durability that will last you through any adventure life might throw at ya! This low-cost material is a strong synthetic fiber known for being resilient and springing back after being bent or crushed. This is why nylon rugs are great for high-traffic areas and under furniture. They are easily cleaned and repel most dirt, grime, and dust. Polyester is soft and rich in color. This affordable material is not damaged by moths, mold, or mildew, and polyester repels water.
Rugs With Low Piles
If you're dealing with allergies, stick to tightly woven fibers and low pile heights. This will avoid particles getting trapped in the rug - most important is a shaggy design which has long threads that can easily capture allergens. The larger & plusher an area for your feet ,the harder it'll be clean off any foreign irritants from entering its depths
Are you allergic to dust and fur? Then a low-pile rug is perfect for your home. The tightly woven fibers will help keep the allergens away, so they don't get trapped in those pesky carpets! When searching out which rugs are right for people with these concerns make sure that any pile heights fall below 1/4 inch high as this allows less microscopic matter into one's lungs while still providing comfort underfoot due t otheir soft textures When searching for a rug, look at pile heights lower than a quarter inch. This clean and modern rug is a great example of a low pile that is easy to clean and spot dirt or grime. You can find a wide variety of rugs with low pile heights.
Natural Materials That Pass The Allergen Test
Natural materials like cotton, sisal, jute, seagrass, and hemp are all natural fibers that are good for people who tend to have allergies. If you prefer natural materials to synthetic, these are the materials to go for. These particular natural materials are all woven into thinner rugs, which means they all have lower pile heights. They also all tend to shed less, which can help prevent allergic reactions. This is another reason you want to avoid wool—it tends to shed which spreads irritants.
Cotton rugs are versatile, durable, and come in many colors and styles. They are less expensive and are naturally hypoallergenic. Hemp rugs are soft and pliable and have an earthy look and feel to them. Jute is an environmentally-friendly fiber that is very strong, as well as affordable. Seagrass rugs are also eco-friendly and are durable and easy to clean. Seagrass is one of the most stain-resistant natural fibers on the market. Sisal rugs cost little and are durable and hypoallergenic. Sisal is naturally insulating which reduces humidity and heating and cooling costs.
Rugs Labeled Low VOC
When talking about allergens in the air, it is also important to talk about other air pollutants, such as toxins. Chemical treatments used in many rugs will convert to gas over time and enter the air. This can affect indoor air quality and make anyone’s allergies worsen over time. Rugs labeled low VOC (volatile organic compound) will have minimal amounts of substances such as formaldehyde and benzene. These chemical treatments are useful in neutralizing or repelling offending particles, but minimal amounts are ideal to both prevent trapping allergens while preventing poor air quality.
If you don’t see a low VOC label, play it safe with environmentally-friendly rugs that are naturally hypoallergenic like cotton, hemp, or sisal. This hemp rug has a beautiful, earthy feel to it that would make your home feel more natural. If you’re more into color, we love this bright blue cotton rug or this pink cotton rug. Sisal rugs are great for screened-in porches, patios, and front halls because of their durable, yet natural makeup.
Small, Machine-Washable Rugs
If you’re nervous about bringing a rug into your home with your allergies, help yourself out by keeping things low maintenance. If you have severe allergies, no matter what precautions you take, you are still going to have issues in your home—whether you have a rug or not. Even with a naturally hypoallergenic rug, your rug will still collect particles from the air that you will have to clean.
Instead of investing in a large rug that will be difficult to clean routinely, try layering small, machine-washable rugs. Or only place small rugs throughout the home and decorate them as area rugs. This will make it easy to toss your rug in the wash on a regular basis so you can know you’re keeping your home as clean and free of allergens as possible. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a smaller area rug.
