Quality Flooring Options
Did you know that there are a variety of eco-friendly flooring options that you can choose for your next home project? Whether you are looking for carpet, wood flooring, or resilient flooring, you can make an environmentally-responsible choice.
Carpets made from natural fibers, such as wool, are considered more environmentally friendly than synthetic carpets. Wool carpets, for example, do not require any special stain treatments, so they are free from harmful chemicals. This is important because chemicals from stain treatments can sometimes affect indoor air quality.
Hardwood flooring is considered eco-friendly if it’s made from sustainable wood and if its finish is free from harmful chemicals. Other wood flooring options, including cork, are even friendlier to the environment than hardwood. Cork flooring is made only from the bark of the cork oak tree, so it certainly has a small environmental impact.
Nowadays, most vinyl flooring options are considered eco-friendly because they do not require any special stain treatments. They therefore contribute to cleaner indoor air. But, linoleum flooring is a more environmentally-cautious option because, unlike vinyl, it’s made only from natural resources.
