Dust Mites and your flooring

House dust mites can be a serious problem that one should be dealing with once carpets in the house are left unclean for a long time, especially if asthmatic reactions are present in kids (Peat, et al., 1996). It is proven from research above that there is positive relation between dust mites and asthma severity,  in conclusion of research it was provided that reducing house dust mites presence will significantly reduce childhood asthma.


carpet and allergic reactions Further research is showing that dust mites are not a major issue in the bed mattress, those will be lest responsible for allergic symptoms in kids. It’s hard surface flooring and carpets that are main attractor of allergens and especially hard floor that would not be trapping dust and other irritants. Where carpets have this tendency to trap dust and other particles in its structure and by this be much more friendly in the household with kids that may have some respiratory issues that have to be watched (L.G. Arlian, et al., 1982). There is much research proving that carpets are still best solution to have in the bedrooms and in living room that would attract much traffic and by this could be softer in breathing thanks to having those lovely creamy carpets ( a bit sarcastic on front of creamy carpet, try not to have those as they are very difficult to maintain clean over the time).


I’m sure that main thing that you are going to care is health of your family and you should consult doctor if there is any need. However from above research it is proven that clean floors will improve kids asthma reactions.

Hard flooring in Bedroom

There is a reason why so many bedrooms are carpeted in today’s houses, this is mainly because of the air circulation that is improved by having carpets instead of hard floor. Hard floor is problematic from one perspective, it does not allow for dust and other particles to sink in to it and not to be breathed in by sleeping individual.

This is main issue that is presented with hard flooring, is that all the dust and other pollutants will be freely flowing in the air and by this they can actually cause some allergic reactions and other problems in young or elderly people. It is highly recommended to implement some method of air circulation in the bedroom, one could also add that having pets in the house without carpets will increase possibility of allergic reactions.

Friend of mine has a baby with allergic reactions to cat that she loves and does not see any chance of getting rid of this cat, however ever sense she have placed rug in the room where they sleep her’s child allergic reaction have diminished and this is one of proof that having some sort of fabric on the floor can improve air filtration. On the other hand everybody’s situation is individual and should be treated as such and without any question allergic reaction to pets should be treated seriously and according to doctors recommendations.
