Dealing with allergies in your home can be an absolute nightmare; dust particles and other allergens always manage to find places to tuck themselves away and wait to aggravate any conditions that you might have.
Carpets, for example, are notorious for clinging on to particles that can cause irritations for people with allergies and can be really difficult to clean and maintain to ensure they don’t cause any issues. Hardwood flooring, however, suffers from none of these disadvantages can really help to make your home much more comfortable.
Nowhere For Allergens To Hide!
One negative point of carpets is that they give plenty of places for dust, dirt and allergen particles to hide away from vacuum cleaners and stick around for far too long. These particles can easily cling to the carpet’s fibres deep down, making it notoriously difficult to get rid of them. Even thorough and regular vacuuming is not enough to get rid of dust and dirt that gets buried deep down within the carpet’s fibres, meaning that a carpet that looks clean on the surface can easily be far from it lower down.
This won’t affect the health of many people, but those with allergies will notice allergies and respiratory conditions flaring up as a result of the difficulty associated with thoroughly deep cleaning carpets.
Easy To Clean & Maintain
It’s very easy to save away for hours trying to thoroughly clean a carpet, and the cost of deep cleaning and various cleaning products can easily add up; when it comes to allergies vacuuming carpets simply isn’t enough to remove dust and allergens that will aggravate allergies and asthma. It can be a particularly fruitless task if you have pets, too, as once you’ve finished vacuuming the pesky pet hairs will find their way into your carpets very quickly.
With hardwood flooring, however, thorough cleaning is much simpler – regular vacuuming (with the correct attachment to avoid damage) and mopping is all that’s required to keep the flooring clean. There’s no risk of dust or dirt hiding away and not being picked up during a clean, and there’s nothing for dust particles or allergens (such as pollen or pet hair) to stick to.
This will vastly improve the quality of the air for those suffering with allergies, as well as reduce and almost remove the risk of allergies flaring up as a result of hidden particles; allergy sufferers frequently report the improvements of ditching carpets in favour of hardwood flooring.

Knowing exactly how to look after your wooden floors without doing them any damage can be tricky, but being aware of precisely how you should care for your type of wooden flooring is paramount to ensuring that it has a long life and looks as good as it did the day it was installed.
While not exhaustive, these general tips will help steer you in the right direction for making your wooden floors look their best no matter how long you’ve had them.
Clean Them Regularly
By regularly sweeping, mopping and vacuuming your wooden floors you’re doing much more than just keeping them looking spotless. Hard, gritty particles sit alongside the soft-looking fluff and, if left to knock around your floor, will cause scratches and abrasive marks over time. The three aforementioned methods are the most effective when it comes to cleaning your floors; be very wary of using floor cleaning products and ensure you use the most suitable for your wood. Using the wrong one for your type of flooring could ruin the finish and cause damage to the wood.
Simple-To-Remove Scuff Marks
Scuff marks look awful, and might appear permanent; not even a good mopping can seem to lift them. But they’re easy to remove and most scuffs will disappear with some warm water on a cloth and a good helping of elbow grease. Some may require a short spray of suitable wood cleaner to really shift, but nothing any more drastic than that is required for the dreaded black scuff marks.
Avoid Those Pesky Gaps
Wood reacts to extreme temperatures, and expands and contracts with the changes in weather and humidity. Wooden flooring can often have a particularly tough time in the winter months as the cold weather causes it to contract and the high humidity (due to central heating and gas fires) removes moisture from the air, and subsequently from the wood.
Simply popping a humidifier in a room with wood flooring can stop the air (and the wood) drying out, contracting and causing those annoying gaps in between the board.
