Reduce Indoor Allergies with Healthier Living Installation

indoor allergies

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that Americans spend nearly 90 percent of their time indoors, and are therefore exposed to multiple indoor pollutants such as lead, asbestos, and ozone, as well as microorganisms that cause allergies. Additionally, houses and modern buildings are tightly insulated against winter drafts and summer heat, which saves energy but greatly reduces fresh air circulation.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America points to carpet as one of the most common triggers for many allergy sufferers.

Carpeting is a wonderful asset to a home, providing an attractive and warm base for the floors. Unfortunately, carpets can also be a haven for dust mites, mold, mildew, pet dander, pollen, dust, and other tiny triggers that can set off a severe allergic reaction. In the past, most professionals have recommended bare flooring for people with allergies. New technological developments, however, have arisen, and homeowners are no longer relegated to cold vinyl or expensive hardwood flooring. A new carpet installation process called the Healthier Living flooring installation system provides an attractive, clean, and healthy alternative to bare flooring. The Healthier Living system provides carpet installation on three levels:

  • Careful carpet removal
  • Pre-installation treatment
  • Installation of an antimicrobial pad

The Healthier Living Way

Careless carpet removal can severely aggravate allergy symptoms. Dust, pollen, and other allergens may shake loose from their dormant home in the fibers and disperse throughout the house, triggering untold agony for the homeowners. With the Healthier Living system, Contract Carpet One installers seal off the room and thoroughly vacuum the carpet with a specialized HEPA filter-equipped vacuum cleaner. After the carpet is carefully removed, installers vacuum the bare floor once again to capture any residual particles that may provoke allergies.

After the floor is cleaned, installers apply HealthinEx Antimicrobial Pre-installation Treatment, a special disinfectant spray that treats the floor for existing contaminants, prevents airborne microorganisms from spreading throughout the home, and stops future bacterial and mildew growth on the floor.

Finally, installers lay a high-quality Antimicrobial Premium Carpet Cushion before the installation of the carpeting. Unlike typical carpet cushions that absorb dirt and spilled liquids, Contract Carpet One’s Healthier Living carpet pad is a hypoallergenic cushion that inhibits mold and mildew, resists the odors caused by bacteria, and meets indoor air quality standards.

Better Choices, Better Quality of Living

Asthma and allergy sufferers are no longer doomed to slippery and chilly bare floors. New insights into the immune system processes and new advancements in “green” carpet installation technology provide a higher quality of living for asthma and allergy sufferers. The Healthier Living flooring installation system offers a refreshing flooring alternative for both the home and business environments. Contract Carpet One of Maryland utilizes the Healthier Living procedure at no extra cost.
