World Asthma Day 2022 is just around the corner, on Tuesday 3rd May. If you’re wondering how asthma could be affected by your surroundings, take a look at the flooring beneath you.

Making decisions about the ideal flooring options for your home can be tricky when there are allergies or asthma involved. World Asthma Day 2022 is a great reminder of why your flooring choice matters for everyone in your family.

From carpet to timber floors and everything in between, different flooring can help or hinder asthma symptoms. Held annually on the first Tuesday in May by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA), World Asthma Day 2022 (May 3) is an important day used to raise awareness of asthma and recognise how it affects those who live with it.


Did you know asthma cannot be cured, but it is possible to be managed and prevent asthma attacks? Asthma is not infectious, but viral respiratory infections can cause asthma. More than 2.5 million Australians have asthma and it can happen at any age to anyone. As with anything, prevention is the best key and your home flooring is a good place to start.

Polished concrete is a great flooring choice!

Polished concrete flooring is hypoallergenic and the perfect option for those with asthma. Not only is it easy to clean (just a bit of sweeping and mopping), scratch-resistant, and looks great, but it’s allergy free – the best way to go for asthma sufferers. Plus, concrete flooring won’t hold onto dust mites or attract mould! It’s also an eco-friendly flooring solution that can be used in any residential or commercial space.

Having your floors polished concrete is also a sustainable design option, as it makes use of materials that are already present in the space. They are also great for well-used spaces due to their hard-wearing nature and durability.
