Asthma And Carpets

By Levon Disraeli

When I finished the fourth grade, my parents noticed that in general, I was having a difficult time breathing. Their first thoughts regarding this were that my breathing difficulties were the result of seasonal allergies. However, I was seen by a doctor who thoroughly examined me, and he came to the conclusion that I, unfortunately, had asthma and needed medicinal assistance in order to properly breathe.

When I turned nine years old, I was being heavily medicated with constant inhaler usage as well as daily steroid usage, which helped keep my breathing passageways open. However, they did not seem to completely do the trick.

Because of this, the doctor inquired about my room at home. He asked if my room was carpeted or if it was a wooden floor, to which we responded that it was carpeted. Immediately, without hesitation, the doctor told us that either the carpet must be removed from the room, or I must sleep in a non-carpeted room.

Subsequently, I learned the reason behind the necessity for this. Large amounts of dust are stored by carpets on their surfaces and in their pockets. As a matter of fact people often remove their carpets and actually find a thick layer of dust built up from years of dust collection.

People who sleep in carpeted rooms often have more vulnerability to having blocked breathing passageways due to the many dust molecules that pocket themselves inside of the carpet.

As such, we totally uprooted the carpet from my room, and we were left with a totally flat wooden floor. As a result, the quality of my breathing had highly risen.

The doctor made note of the fact that although we successfully removed the carpet from the room, it was still necessary to sand down the wooden floor, wax, it and polish it so that dust will not be able to gather within the wood and enter into the air space.

The flooring and carpeting tools that were used in the process helped to ensure that the job was properly completed and everything uprooted. Using the right tools made a major difference in my asthma because it meant that the job was thorough and accurate. Most likely, if we would have used such power tools from the beginning when I had the carpet in my room, such as a power-steamer, the dust would not have accumulated to such an extent, and my health would have been further protected.

As such, it is of utmost importance to make the most of the best carpeting tools in order to eliminate dust from one’s home.
