As society improves, we are actually looking into a more healthy living and lifestlye. There are airborne particles that can be allergic to human bodies depending on the condition of one’s body. For example, dust mites. It might not be a health hazard to most people but its faeces which is also needed to be seen under microscope is airborne. It is trapped together with the surrounding dust, once inhaled it might triggers asthma, sneezing etc.

According to a recent article about the main cause of respiratory problems in Singapore is due to dust mites. These problems are common in countries who suffer from tropical climate changes such as Singapore and Malaysia. Still, every home needs a flooring so how can you avoid rearing dust mites in your home flooring? Below are reasons why Eco wood flooring can avoid having these mites in your home.

Choose a Wood Flooring for your home

Many might choose wood flooring due to its natural wood beauty and the solid feel on your feet when step onto. A lot might not have known that wood flooring by nature do not attract dust mites so you don’t have to worry about having any dust mites infested without sweeping your floor for days.

Why Wood Flooring?

People who know would usually recommend keeping unused clothes or soft toys in a wooden box instead of plastic box as the wooden box wouldn’t retain the moisture of your stuff. Same goes to flooring, as wood flooring compound is make up of 90% wood, hence it is very dry. Dust mites cannot survive in such state, they are especially comfortable in warm and humid conditions such as your carpets or bed, and they requires about 70% humidity to survive, when humidity drops below 50% they will die. Therefore wood flooring is an ideal choice when coming to a decision when you or your family has any allergies towards dust mites.

The first thing that might came into your mind when wood flooring is mentioned, it will be too costly. As technology improves, there are other alternatives in the market such as engineered wood and re-engineered wood which is much more cost efficient and have the same benefits as a normal wood parquet flooring.

Flooring plays a big part in everyone’s busy daily lifestyle as we tend to spend more time in the office or at home these days. Thus it is important to have an Eco flooring in your home which also does not attract mites. It is not only about beautifying your home, but also to have a safe environment for you and your family.
