Hardwood floors are the best choice when the main concern is a healthy and ecological environment. We are all aware that indoor air quality (not only in residential homes, but business offices and commercial areas) is one of the top health threats. When you install hardwood floors, you will deliberately and actively contribute to a healthy living environment.
Hardwoods are easily cleaned with non-toxic products, and do not trap allergens like mold spores, bacteria and dust mites often embedded in other flooring products, creating and maintaining better air quality, especially for people suffering from allergies. For this reason, they are recommended for chemically sensitive individuals, or those who suffer from allergies or asthma.
