When you suffer from seasonal allergies, the outside world can feel like a battlefield.
From the first tree pollen in early spring to the last of the ragweed in late summer and fall, life can seem unbearable. Home should be an allergy-free sanctuary, and a new product from House of Broadloom in Sudbury is giving folks with allergies the comforts of carpeting along with clean, allergen-free indoor air.
If you suffer with allergies and tend towards hard flooring in your home, you might be surprised to learn that carpet can actually be the better choice for a sneeze-free home. Carpet acts like a magnet that traps those common household particles such as dust, pollen and pet and insect dander and holds them in place until you vacuum it away. On a hard surface floor, allergens sit on the surface then recirculate through the air every time you walk through the room. In fact, the DAAB study proved that carpet can reduce airborne dust by 50% of that found above hard flooring surfaces. It is important to note that older carpeting can be loaded with trapped allergens and difficult to clean. In this case, new carpeting can be a game-changer for allergy sufferers.
Air.o is Pure Peace of Mind
House of Broadloom now offers Air.o hypo-allergenic soft flooring by Mohawk. Air.o is made from fibers that won't absorb moisture, so allergens and microbes can’t grow.
This revolutionary product has been called the “next generation of soft flooring” because Mohawk has actually re-engineered the way traditional carpet is constructed. Their new ‘unified soft flooring’ has a premium felt pad integrated directly into the carpet, rather than a separate cushion. The padding provides cushiony comfort and protects your flooring, with no separate chip foam pad that can break down and create more dust build-up beneath the carpet. Air.o’s integrated felt pad will hold strong for the life of the carpet.
House of Broadloom offers Mohawk Air.o flooring in a range of colours. In addition to scoring top points for its contribution to reducing allergens in the home, Air.o boasts a long list of benefits for those replacing their existing carpeting or choosing to use carpet for the first time:
- SUSTAINABLE - Air.o is engineered with just one material making it the only 100% recyclable soft flooring available and is an industry game-changer when it comes to diverting landfill waste
- EASY TO INSTALL – With no separate under pad, Mohawk Air.o carpet installs in one step and lays flat without buckling or wrinkling. Just cut to size, fold back and fix it in place with double-sized tape. Your flooring specialists at House of Broadloom has the tools and helpful advice for the DIY installers, and of course professional installation services are always available.
- EASY TO CLEAN - The unique unified construction of Air.o carpet naturally provides better airflow. This means dust and dirt can’t get trapped and is easier to vacuum away.
- VOC-FREE: Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are toxic chemicals that emit “off-gas” and, over time, can impact the health of your family and pets. Air.o carpet fiber is created using advanced polymers, and no latex-associated VOCs. This means that your hypoallergenic carpet is safe and odor-free.
