The main two reasons that many homeowners avoid carpet is that they think it will be easily stained and hard to keep clean and that it could cause allergies or make them worse. While this may have been true at one point in the past, it’s not nearly the issue many think it still is. In fact, carpet manufacturers are putting extra precautions in place to see that these issues are addressed.
For stain protection, some brands are manufacturing stain resistance into the very fibers themselves. This means the product is already resistant to staining as soon as it is installed in your home. Some of those carpets even have protection against stains and odors that are specific to pets. It’s also important to remember that even more stain protection can be added after installation in the form of a specific product or area rugs.
To fight allergies, manufacturers are creating hypoallergenic fibers that help protect against any allergens making their way back out into the air to cause problems. At one point in time, the only hope for allergy sufferers was to remove their carpeting. Now, that same flooring can trap, confine and render those allergens powerless.
