1. A Renewable Resource
Wood flooring is the most abundantly renewable flooring material available. According to the U.S. Forest Service, the annual net growth for hardwoods is greater than the average annual removal rate, thanks to responsible harvesting techniques. That means that trees are growing faster than they are being used.
In terms of CO2 removal, trees remove the most CO2 (a greenhouse gas) from the air when they are young, long before they are ready for harvest. By the time they are harvested, the process by which they take in CO2 and release oxygen is slowed significantly. This means that the earth still is benefiting from their most “productive” oxygen emission phase.
2. Fewer Chemicals
Hardwood floors contain far fewer harmful chemicals than carpet or linoleum. Once in your home, hardwood floors are far easier to clean than carpet, keeping your family and pets free and clear of debris, dust, and chemicals brought in from treated lawns.
3. Longer Life
Wood floors use less water and energy to produce than carpet and linoleum. They last the lifetime of a house, rather than needing to be replaced every 10-15 years.
