My daughter, almost 6 years old, has CIE and last fall we removed the carpet out of her bedroom and put in laminate. It was inexpensive and easy to do, weekend project, and the air is so much clearer. I highly recommend this. It is interesting that you can't swiffer up the flakes but I easily sweep them every day and I know she feels and sleeps better. Good luck.

Hi libby,

Have you visited your doctor? My wife and I installed some hardwood flooring, we live in tropical weather, and no change at all. This is where we bought our floorings:

We mostly have hardwood floors in our house (built in 1885) but we do have a few area rugs. For Christmas this past year I asked for $ in order to get a Dyson vacuum cleaner. So far we have been impressed with what it can pull out of the rugs, couch, chairs and matresses.
