Poor David. Every morning, he has to take Allegra-D-12 for his clogged sinus, and every night before bed, he has to apply a nose strip to increase his airflow. I think he has an allergy. We replaced our air conditioner last week, because the old one contained black mold. Since that hasn’t eased his problem, I think we should replace the carpet in the bedroom. It’s more than 20 years old, having been installed by the previous owner before we bought the house in 1991.
Not only does carpeting contain dust, dirt and mites, but the baseboards are loaded with grime, also. It is so difficult to move the king size bed, the triple dresser, 2 night stands, and 4 drawer filing cabinet to get to the baseboards on an annual basis. Imagine: those baseboards have not been cleaned since we moved in. Ugh!
We have decided to purchase inexpensive carpeting, because we intend to keep changing it every 10 years or so. Yes, tile or laminate would be preferable to carpet, but there is a dip where the concrete was poured when the bedroom was extended. Rigid materials will not bend at the dip. Adding cement will not do because of the way the sliding glass doors are situated.
Wish there were a permanent solution to our flooring problem, but this is the best we can do. Meanwhile, David should discuss his allergy with his internist. Maybe, he needs to take Claritin.
