Let’s face it, keeping an active home squeaky clean is hard work. It seems like there’s never enough time in the day—the kids are always on the move, and our pets are just one doorbell ring away from completely running amok! We can hang up clothes and put away toys, but we know that beyond the eye test, most of our homes have countless allergens, dust and dirt particles floating around in the air.
Allergies and Carpet
Most people think that a cleaner, more hypoallergenic home can only feature hard surface flooring options and that carpets harbor dirt and dust, which are bad for allergy sufferers. There’s no way that families can enjoy a comfortable, soft floor without having to deal with these pesky allergens, right?
Thankfully, this is not the case! In fact, dirt and dust sit on top of hard surfaces like wood and tile, where they can be disturbed easily and float back into the air. Carpet, however, captures dust and allergens, preventing them from being released back into the air. The trick is to get the offending particles out of the carpet once they’re captured.
Air.o Soft Flooring for Allergy Sufferers
A new type of soft flooring has been developed specifically with allergy sufferers in mind. Air.o Hypoallergenic Soft Flooring is both hypoallergenic and easy to clean, so dust and other allergens end up in your vacuum cleaner and ultimately in the trash, not floating around in the air.
Two major differences help make Air.o easier to clean than traditional carpet. First, it is made from fibers that do not absorb moisture. Dirt and allergens cling to moisture, so moisture in many carpet fibers traps the particles, making it difficult for your vacuum to do its job. Air.o’s fibers repel moisture, however, leaving dirt and allergens free to be removed more easily. Second, Air.o is constructed for better airflow, so more dust and dirt is removed during vacuuming. The result is cleaner carpets with fewer allergens.
Unified Construction of Soft Flooring
In addition to being hypoallergenic and easier to thoroughly clean, Air.o is engineered with unified construction. The padding is attached and no nails or staples are required, which speeds up installation. Also, Air.o soft flooring does not need to be stretched. It lies flat with no wrinkling or buckling, cutting some costs from the installation budget and eliminating frustration from unsightly loose carpet.
Air.o is also made from a single material, making it 100% recyclable. Not only will allergy sufferers in your home thank you, so will the planet.
More than ever, we’re concerned about the products we bring into our home and the effects they have on us and our families. Along with helping to minimize allergens, Air.o is created without any latex, VOCs or other odor-causing substances.
If your goal is to reduce allergens and make your home cleaner, you’ll definitely want to take a look at Air.o!
