Carpet flooring and allergies – they DO go together!

Carpet flooring and allergies – they DO go together!

Allergy sufferers can succeed when looking for a perfect carpet for their homes. Carpet Yard, in business since 1987, is the place to go for carpet brands that promote a healthy environment.

Since we directly distribute for virtually every manufacturer in the flooring industry, you'll find a wide variety of styles when you shop at our 5,000-square-foot carpet store.

Hypoallergenic styles

Synthetic carpeting labeled 'hypoallergenic' is an obvious option if you favor a style that minimizes allergens. This carpet traps irritating particles and prevents them from circulating in the air until you can vacuum them away.

Like a dehumidifier, a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter is a must-have if you want to maintain an allergen-free home.


Wool promotes an allergy-free environment; therefore, wool carpeting is your best choice and is well worth the extra cost. In addition, wool is resistant to bacteria, mold, and mildew and naturally absorbs contaminants in the air.

Further, wool positively affects the home's humidity level because it can absorb up to 30 percent of its weight in water vapor.


Padding is essential to installation since it prevents excessive floor covering wear and provides underfoot comfort and thermal and sound insulation. In addition, the best hypoallergenic padding brands resist fungal, viral, and bacterial pathogen growth.

Allergy-friendly padding also includes a vapor barrier that repels moisture and, thus, the growth of mold and mildew.
