Consider Limestone Flooring To Curb Allergies

Limestone Flooring Can Help With Allergy Symptoms

If you have allergic reactions, either seasonally, or to certain things like dust, pollen, or pet danger, the flooring in your home could be the primary source that is causing you misery, whether you know it or not. The tiny particles that cause your allergies to act up could constantly be on the floor and then be stirred up and into the air. Over time, those particles accumulate, and they are all over you every time you walk through the room. If your allergic reactions are worse than normal, consider changing the flooring in your home to limestone.

Carpeting Causes Allergy Issues

Carpeted flooring is the worse answer for those with allergies. The tiny fibers in carpets hold onto dust, dirt, and other particles that can cause allergies to flare. Vacuuming can pick up some of the allergens, but it can also send them flying back into the air, which just makes it worse for the person who is already suffering. Allergists will often advise against carpeting in a home because of its easy collection of dust, pet danger, pollen, and other allergens. Instead, those who suffer from various allergies are advised to get a flat, smooth floor that is easy to clean.

Choose Limestone Flooring Options

Limestone fits the bill perfectly as a flat, smooth, easy-to-clean surface. Limestone is a material that repels allergies and since it is denser than wood, it doesn’t hold odors or absorb liquids either, both of which can cause allergy flares. If you have allergies or asthma, you don’t have to worry about limestone floors causing you to have more symptoms.

Keeping The Floor Clean

Any floor can accumulate dust and dirt so the key to allowing your allergies to remain calm is keeping the floors clean. You will want to dust them off on a regular basis, so the allergens don’t stay on the floor and settle. It’s easy to keep them on the ground and sweep them away before they accumulate. The flooring itself repels allergens and does half the work for you.

Making The Switch

If you have carpeting now, it might be time to make a change for the better of your health. There are plenty of hard surfaces to consider, but limestone flooring is among the best. Not only is it a softer stone that will feel nice under your feet, but the natural appeal brings warmth and elegance into a home. Limestone raises the value on a home, so you can ensure you will get the money you invest in the project back if you ever sell the home. It’s a good way to treat your allergies with care while investing in your home in a positive manner.

Find The Right Limestone

If you’ve decided to move forward with the project, all you have to do now is figure out what limestone is right for your home and how to maintain it well enough that your allergy symptoms won’t rise up again. Contact Impression with your questions about limestone flooring options.
