Which flooring should you choose if you suffer from allergies?

Millions of people suffer at least from one allergy, with numbers continuing to rise.

According to the charity Allergy UK, each year the number of allergy surferers increases by five per cent, with half of all those affected being children.  Cutting down on exposure to allergens is important for these individuals – and your flooring is a perfect place to start.




When taking steps to allergy-proof their home, most people tend to over look the floor, yet it can be the single biggest source of allergens.  That’s because certain types of flooring can provide the perfect breeding ground for common allergens, including dust mites, mold and mildrew.  So choosing the right flooring for your house can make all the difference when allergies are a concern.

Here at Style Flooring of York we offer a number of flooring solutions but one which is very popular and we would recommend highly is Marmoleum, Forbo’s own brand of linoleum.
