Concrete flooring is becoming a common staple in homes and offices across the United States. Largely due to the value they add in terms of performance, cost savings, and aesthetics, but also because of the added health benefits for those who suffer from allergies. ConcreteNetwork.com explores these benefits and more for those interested in getting started on a spring project.
Because carpeting can harbor tens of millions of dust mites and other allergens per square foot, home and business owners are more often trading in their wall-to-wall carpeting for concrete. Often overlooked are the hypoallergenic advantages of concrete floors for those who suffer from allergies.
Often a problem with carpeting, bare concrete floors won't harbor dust mites and won't support the growth of toxic mold making for easier breathing for allergy and asthma sufferers. Concrete floors are low maintenance and easily kept clean with periodic dust or damp mopping.
