When it comes to designing a space for senior living facilities or educational institutions, flooring may not always be the first thing that comes to mind. However, it plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and well-being of the residents or students, especially when it comes to allergies and respiratory illnesses.

Asthma is often associated with younger people, but research has shown that people over the age of 65 have the highest mortality rates from this disease. In fact, over 10% of this age group is affected by asthma. Additionally, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes bronchitis and emphysema, affects approximately 6.4% of adults, with most of them being over 65 years old.

Indoor air pollution is a significant issue that can exacerbate respiratory illnesses, and people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. This is especially concerning for the elderly, who may spend more time indoors and are more vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollutants. Therefore, it is essential to have flooring that promotes indoor air quality and reduces the risk of respiratory illnesses.
