Is hardwood flooring considered a hypoallergenic product?

We hear many questions about hardwood flooring and its performance in certain situations, especially in large, busy homes. But many homeowners ask if wood floors offer a hypoallergenic solution, and the answer is yes.

Of course, there are other factors to consider, and we can help make sense of them all. Here are some facts that could help you find the perfect flooring for your home.

Here are some things to think about

If you suffer from asthma or allergies, indoor air quality must be as high as possible to ensure breathability. Other allergens trapped in your wood flooring in Tampa, FL, can also trigger your allergies, so choosing the perfect floor covering is necessary.

One of the main reasons hardwood flooring is considered hypoallergenic is that it never harbors dust mites, mold, or other allergens that can often accumulate in other floor coverings. It also doesn’t emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can irritate your respiratory system.

Cleaning is another way to keep hardwood floors allergen-free because they can still experience a build-up of pet dander, pollen, and dust. That’s why it’s important to vacuum or dust mop your solid or engineered wood floors regularly, avoiding harsh or abrasive cleaners that could damage your floors and attach harmful fumes to the cleaning process.
