The lowdown on allergens in flooring
Dust mites, pet dander, and pollen are common allergens that can get trapped in many types of flooring. Carpets, in particular, can be breeding grounds for these micro-invaders. Over time, these allergens can affect indoor air quality and contribute to respiratory issues.
Why tile flooring is a breath of fresh air
- Non-porous surface: Tile flooring boasts a non-porous surface, so it does not easily trap or harbor allergens. Whether it's dust, pollen, or pet dander, these particles remain on the surface, making them easier to clean and eliminate.
- No off-gassing concerns: Many synthetic flooring options can release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air, which can be harmful when inhaled. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are inert, ensuring your indoor environment remains free from these toxic emissions.
- Mold and mildew resistant: Moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth, especially in damp areas of the home, like bathrooms and basements. Tile flooring is resistant to moisture, significantly reducing the risk of mold and mildew development.
Cleaning and maintenance: enhancing air quality
The ease of cleaning tile floors further underscores their health benefits. Regular sweeping or vacuuming followed by damp mopping can effectively remove allergens. Since tiles don't trap particles as carpets do, maintaining a clean, allergen-free environment becomes significantly more manageable.
