Allergies and asthma can limit your life. You have to be aware of the local pollen count. Close your windows when the air is thick. Debate various medical treatments. And even skip outside activities sometimes.
Don’t miss this irritant that’s literally right under your nose … and feet:
Your home’s flooring.
That’s right. Your flooring can help your healthy home–or it can aggravate your itchy eyes, coughing and sneezing.
Here’s what to look for in healthy flooring:
- Easy-to-clean surface that keeps allergens at a low level.
- Natural components so there is little or no off-gassing of toxic fumes.
- Non-toxic glue used during installation.
