    Carpets are a major health hazard.

    The main problem with them is that they trap and harbour microbes , spores, and all the other dirt and dust. They are a breeding ground for all that, sorry about the highly technical explanation.

    When we hoover them, we throw all this stuff into the atmosphere........ever noticed how you get a cold / calloused throat after hoovering?

    (Also new carpets come with some unhealthy chemical treatments, but thats another matter).

    So, if you can, live in a house with wooden or stone
    floors that you can mop clean!

    Hearanddo, thanks for the great post! I don't have any carpets in my home, just wood floors, that get mopped often. Your right about all the unhealthy stuff, that can get trapped in carpets, and vacuming, doesn't eliminate the problems. One of the main reasons, I don't have carpets, is that we have asthma.

    Psalms 118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

    I use the KJV Bible, unless otherwise noted.
