When it comes to health issues, carpet has gotten a pretty bad rap, because of a lot of misinformation and untruths out there, so you may just want to visit a carpet store once you hear this truth from Carpet Giant in Houston.
First, it absolutely does not exacerbate allergies and asthma. In fact, it actually can improve indoor air quality, because it acts as a kind of filter, trapping particles and lowering the incidence of airborne pollutants. Air quality is important for everyone, but especially so for those with respiratory problems. While no one is arguing that it’s great just to be able to sweep floors, that makes particles fly around, and you’ll breathe and even possibly inhale them. This, however, traps dust particles, keeping them out of the air, and just waiting for the vacuum cleaner.
By the way, it also doesn’t give off many VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and the ones they do give off, are usually short-lived and will dissipate as soon as windows are open.
Bottom-line: Keep it vacuumed and you’ll be fine.
Here’s reason #2 why carpet is good for health: It makes the surface safer. We once knew someone whose young son always seemed to be in an arm cast. The homeowner had tile in most of the rooms and, although it was beautiful, the kid was always slipping, falling, and breaking and spraining his arm. It’s soft, plush, and will protect you from the hard surface, so if you have kids, elderly residents, or even running pets who can sometimes be pretty clumsy, this is the way to go.
Reason #3: You’ll sleep better and be a lot less distracted, which means you'll be less clumsy and prone to falling...not to mention more productive.
Reason #4 is why it’s good for your home’s style which, in turn, is good for your emotional state. It will look elegant and fit into any atmosphere, what with the large assortment of colors and patterns. You'll be happy and proud at how your “nest is feathered” and you’ll always be pleased to show it off. Our carpet sales pros tell us sales are going through the roof.
