What is Sustainable Flooring?
Sustainable flooring is any flooring that has little or no impact on the environment during production, use, and end of life-cycle. Look for these factors when choosing a sustainable floor:
- Sustainable harvesting practices.
- Made from natural or renewable materials.
- Manufacturing has little to no waste.
- Has little impact on the environment when disposed of.
Maintaining Sustainable Flooring
Bamboo: Clean bamboo floors regularly and soak up spills immediately with a dry towel or mop – never wet-mop a floor, as it can cause permanent damage. Never use cleaners that are ammonia-based, wax-based, or contain bleach or vinegar. It is a good idea to fit furniture legs with protective caps or felt tips and to keep your pets' nails trimmed to prevent excessive scratching.
Sustainable carpet and vinyl flooring can be cleaned with the usual cleaners and detergents.
