Stained Concrete Floors Help Reduce Allergens

Decorative stained concrete floors are a healthy alternative to carpeting for those sensitive to animal dander, dust mites, and other allergens that become embedded in carpet fibers. Concrete floors won't trap dirt, and the surface is easy to clean with periodic sweeping or damp mopping.

According to the American Lung Association, carpets collect and hold dirt, pollen and other allergens. And vacuum cleaners may not alleviate the problem, since they often blow the particles back into the air. Another benefit of concrete floors: They won't support the growth of toxic mold if exposed to moisture, unlike organic flooring materials such as carpet and wood.
