Tips for Finding Hypoallergenic Rugs
Are you or someone in your household suffering from allergies?
Here are a few tips on how to reduce the risk of suffering from allergies.
Rugs and carpets can potentially become a convenient substrate for different allergies. Rugs can accumulate a variety of allergens, which can trigger allergic reactions in susceptible individuals.
Let's first understand what might trigger allergic reactions:
1. Dust mites: These tiny creatures thrive in warm, humid environments and feed on dead skin cells. They are often found in carpets and rugs, and their waste particles can trigger allergic reactions in some people.
2. Pet dander: If you have pets, their dander (dead skin cells) can accumulate in your rugs and trigger allergic reactions in some people. Even if you don't have pets, dander from other animals can be tracked into your home on shoes or clothing.
3. Mold: Moisture can accumulate in carpets and rugs, especially in damp or humid environments. This can lead to mold growth, which can trigger allergic reactions in some people.
4. Pollen: Pollen can be tracked into your home on shoes or clothing, and can accumulate in your rugs. This can trigger allergic reactions in some people, especially during allergy season.
