Flooring Myth: Carpet is a Bad Choice for Allergy Sufferers
|How long as it been since these people vacuumed?|
Carpet fibers, just like any other soft material such as clothes, upholstery, and curtains, act like air filters by collecting many air pollutants. Result: cleaner air in your home.
But yes, if those pollutants stay trapped in the fibers they are likely to get kicked back into the air when the fibers are disturbed. So, just like you would clean your air vents and replace your air filters, you need to clean your carpet (and any other soft material in your home) on a regular basis.
But, why does this myth occur if it’s as simple as regular vacuuming? Sadly, most people do not vacuum enough or the right way. Here’s what I was taught when growing up by my parents (the owners of Mercer Carpet One).
