Is your family expecting a new addition? When you have a child, you want it to have the most sterile environment possible to sleep in. For your child's nursery, you should put in smooth flooring such as laminate floors instead of carpeting. Carpet will accumulate dust and other allergens over time that can cause respiratory problems in your child's future. With a hard surface like laminate floors, you can keep those particles out of the air by regular sweeping and mopping. Vacuuming a carpet in a nursery will only serve to disperse the particles back into the air, only to fall to the ground once again. If you want the cleanest environment possible for your baby's nursery, look into laminate floors if you have carpet in the room now. Laminate floors are easy to install yourself and will be well worth the effort and cost.
