Question: How can I make sure the materials I use in my remodeling project are safe for a family member with allergies?

Answer: The best place to start is by talking with an allergist. Details on your family member's specific allergies can help determine where to focus your time, energy and money.

Then, find a professional remodeler willing to work with your precise needs. An experienced remodeler will listen to your requirements, help you find solutions and make your home a healthier place to live.

There are many areas to consider — from the foundation to the fabric on your sofa — so ask questions and do your homework. Flooring is a key component in allergy control because carpet can be a source of allergens. Hard floor surfaces are a must, especially in bedrooms and closets.

  1. Absolutely stunning – I love the staircase and wish I could live in a house like that someday. There was so much light and space. Love the floor.

  2. Great post! Most of our customers have no idea that Hardwood floors are hypoallergenic. Since they don’t give mold, animal dander, or pollen a place to hide, they’re a great choice as opposed to carpet.
