Rugs, not carpets, are the word for allergy-sufferers

Those with allergies have likely been long-accustomed to finding effective strategies for reducing their symptoms, but it's important to keep in mind that the flooring of one's abode can have a large impact on the intensity of the symptoms experienced.

If you suffer from heavy allergy symptoms, avoid living in a house or apartment that has wall-to-wall carpeting. Area rugs are a much better option, as they can be removed to be washed, leaving the existing floor free to be cleaned of any dust or particles that may have gotten trapped beneath it.

As an additional measure, allergy-sufferers should consider investing in a high-quality air purifying system.
