There are a lot of people who have allergies and asthma that makes it hard to live when you have carpet because of the hair and dandruff that gets trapped in the carpet fibers and underneath the padding. There are different ways to go about making sure that your home is hypoallergenic and suitable for those with asthma and struggle in the daily in and outs of the world. There are a couple of different options that you must choose from when it comes to making these hard decisions for your home.
There is no set standard for hypoallergenic carpet or padding. This means that you have to do your research to carefully know which carpet and padding is going to work for you. Customer reviews will go a long way in helping you decide which carpet is going to be best for you. We will help you to make sure that you know which carpet brands offer hypoallergenic carpet as well as the ones the ones that don’t give off VOCs. This also is the same for the type of padding you choose.
Here are some of the brands that claim to be hypoallergenic:
- Leggett & Platt Duraplush
- Mohawk SmartCushion
- Healthier Choice
Like we stated before though there is no standard so the only way to know which best is to do research. Mohawk SmartCushion is among one of the few that has the padding attached to the carpet. This means that they attach a padding that is already hypoallergenic. They have attached it because of its unique features. The construction of it allows for better airflow and this makes all the difference when it comes time for vacuuming. If you have ever ripped up old carpet you will see that there is a layer of dirt and dust underneath the carpet. With better airflow through the carpet and padding you will be able to pick more of it up. Having the pad attached to the pad is a plus because it takes the hassle out of trying to research two different materials. Additionally, they claim to be 100% recyclable flooring.
Leggett and Platt Flooring Products has carpet padding that is hypoallergenic and has a green label. They have created this padding so that it blocks out the moisture and is antimicrobial so that it inhibits the growth of mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria. This makes it a great choice when it comes to carpet padding. Healthier Choice has several different paddings to help give you more options when it comes to wanting something very specific.
