It might seem like the exact opposite, but area rugs can actually help relieve allergy symptoms. For years, those with allergies were instructed to remove all carpeting, so allergens would have nowhere to lodge.
However, in cases where the flooring is solid throughout the home, area rugs can actually be beneficial for the same reason. Dust mops often propel allergens into the air where they are then breathed in. If you have area rugs that catch the allergens, they stay trapped until you clean them, thus alleviating many of the allergies in the process.
