Parents are often seeking alternative flooring options for their children since children spend so much time crawling around on the floor getting into mischief that can be unavoidable no matter how many precautions are taken. This is why having hypoallergenic flooring options are so crucial; parents can help their little ones minimize exposure to harmful bacteria, germs, or mold by installing wood floors.
Meet Hardwood FlooringWood flooring is an excellent hypoallergenic solution for your home. Wood floors became a popular option for kitchens because of the hypoallergenic benefits and how fast and easy it is to clean and maintain even heavy-use flooring. This trend has continued to spread throughout the home for the same reason. Many homes now feature hardwood flooring throughout which enriches the look and feel. What once began in the kitchen now warms the environment of bedrooms to living rooms and beyond. So, how does hardwood flooring prevent the effects of allergens? Since hardwood has a smooth, flat surface allergens do not get trapped or settle into the material. Regular cleaning maintenance to help combat any allergens requires little more than sweeping with a soft bristle broom, or vacuuming with a soft floor attachment if your wood floor includes a beveled edge that could collect debris. You also should clean your floors periodically with a professional wood floor-cleaning product, which we will discuss either before or after installation. Doing so will help remove any bacteria that could have developed due to food debris or spills. For more information on wood flooring maintenance check out our Refinishing Guide.
