Everyone has one of those friends who is constantly sneezing and sniffling due to allergies. It might be your best friend or neighbor, a co-worker or loved one. Or, it might be you.
The cost to allergy sufferers isn’t limited to the money spent on tissues or allergy medication. It also doesn’t stop at the resulting ear, throat, and respiratory infections which allergies can trigger. It also costs the lost moments of joy the person with allergies misses.
Medical professionals are compassionate: said one local physician, “My own experience with allergies is that when I sneeze five or six times, I have to cross my legs, so I don’t pee my pants.”
One of the more unusual ways allergy-sufferers control their allergies is by controlling their environment. That control extends to textiles they permit in their homes and offices. “The first thing I did was rip out the carpeting in my new condo,” said one, “The second thing I did was to have epoxy flooring treatment instead of replacing that flooring with some other allergen-trapping textile.”
Clean is so clean!
One of the benefits of epoxy flooring and polished or stained concrete is the ease of cleaning. Carpet and many forms of tile trap dirt and mold spores into the cracks and fibers, which are then released when the air conditioning kicks on, when someone turns on a fan, or even when someone walks into the room. Epoxy flooring doesn’t permit dust, dirt, mold spores, or other allergens permeate the floor, which means there are fewer to kick up and fly around the room.
What about other sources?
A good number of allergens settle into a home by finding their way into the house, most often through the front door. The beauty of epoxy flooring is that it can be cleaned easily, meaning that even when allergens find their way in, once they land, they can be banished with a damp mop. A doormat or throw rug at the front door will also prohibit some allergens from getting in by collecting dirt before it spreads to the rest of the premises.
Epoxy flooring isn’t the miracle cure for allergies, but given that it doesn’t trap or hold allergens, it gives allergy sufferers a real opportunity to fight back because it’s easier to keep a home clean when the flooring is friendly.
Modern, gorgeous epoxy flooring can be one of several measures an allergy-sufferer can take to cut down on the contaminants which enter their home and create an unhealthy environment.
