Concrete Floors Help Reduce Allergens
Concrete floors are a healthy alternative flooring for those with allergies. Concrete is a great alternative to wall-to-wall carpeting for people who are allergic to animal dander and dust mites.
Carpets can harbor dust mites and other allergens. According to the American Lung Association, controlling dust mites is very important for people who are allergic to animal dander and mites. Dust mites live deep in carpet and are not removed by vacuuming.
There is also more demand for concrete floors because they won't trap dirt and the surface is easy to clean. Concrete is easy to keep clean with periodic dust or damp mopping.
