Building an Allergy-Free Home with P.L. Lyons

In the Ohio Valley, many are swamped with year-round allergies: stuffy noses, sneezing, scratchy eyes – we are all too familiar with the symptoms. But, there are a few things you can do when building your home to combat the allergies.

1. Install Moisture Resistant Sheetrock: Dampness can lead to mold and mildew. Bathrooms and kitchens are especially susceptible to moisture buildup. To make your home allergy free, P.L. Lyons can install moisture resistant sheetrock on the walls and ceilings of your home. Cement board and fiberglass sheetrock are two viable options.

2. Make Windows and Doors Moisture Proof: Leaky windows due to rotted framing or sheathing, or molded infiltration insulation can wreak major havoc on your home and allergies. Thankfully, leaky windows can be prevented with proper installation. Therefore, you should allow us to carry out this important task. By utilizing a sill pan, flashing tape, and a house wrap, your contractor can expertly make your beautiful, new widows moisture proof.

3. Install Hardwood Flooring: Carpet traps dust mites. This popular type of flooring is also hard to keep dry. Therefore, it can accumulate hidden mold. To prevent bothersome allergies, opt for hardwood flooring. After P.L. Lyons installs your hardwood floors, sweep and mop them regularly to keep your home dust and allergen free.

Building an allergy-free home is possible with the right materials and builder. With previous experience in building allergy-free homes, P.L. Lyons can walk you through through the allergy-free building process and make your dreams come true. Contact us to learn about our custom homebuilding process.
