Polished concrete floors … the allergy sufferers’ friend

Polished concrete floors … the allergy sufferers’ friend
August 9, 2017

If you suffer from allergies you may want to look at what is causing you to react. Carpet is a virtual magnet for allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, mould spores and other potential irritants. You may not realise that tens of millions of dust mites can live in a square metre of carpeting – and vacuuming won’t remove them.

Concrete floors are an ideal solution for allergy sufferers – in addition to not harbouring allergens, they offer added benefits of being easy to clean, and providing limitless decorative options.

Firth Decorative Concrete comes in a range of colours, finishes and textures. Choose colours from Firth’s Element Coloured Concrete range – colours taken from our environment. Or maybe you would prefer an Exposed Aggregate finish which is then polished to produce a beautiful gloss for the floor in your home.

The possibilities are endless. Talk to us to today about what type of concrete floor you would like to create using Firth’s Decorative Concrete options.
