Dust Allergy

I think I must be allergic to dust. Cleaning the house today, I kept sneezing and sneezing.

Mainstream opinion holds that laminate or wood floors are the answer to dust allergies as carpets trap dust. Not everybody agrees; there is a strong argument that carpets improve air quality by absorbing dust that would otherwise be in the air. Either way, having a shoes-off policy will reduce the dust that comes into your house in the first place!

I agree, I'm sure that people with conditions like hay fever would suffer far less if shoeless homes were more commonplace. I'm sure that shoes bring in lots of allergens other than dust into houses as well.

Quite so.
