There are many factors that one takes into consideration while deciding on the choice of flooring. One of the factors is hygiene too. Here are top healthy and hygienic options for flooring for your space.
Having a hygienic floor is equally important as selecting a floor that is attractive, durable and beautiful. Healthy and hygienic flooring options do not allow allergens to collect in our homes, reduce allergic reactions and enhance the air quality of our homes.
Flooring options that are made out of renewable sources of energy are eco-friendly, healthy and hygienic. Here are few options that you can choose from:
- Bamboo flooring: Bamboo is a type of renewable material; it is also a type of pre-finished hardwood. This makes the flooring free from chemicals, more durable and also is light on the pocket.
- Solid Hardwood Flooring: Hardwood flooring manufactured with the use of carcinogen and low emission adhesives, finishes, and sealants are options for healthy flooring. Hardwood flooring is also known to be an excellent selection for households with pets and children.
- Cork Flooring: Cork flooring is created by using the bark of cork oak. The best part is that the growth of the tree is not hindered, the cork grows back again. The leftover pieces from the manufacturing process are closely bound together to manufacture cork flooring. Sealants used by the flooring manufacturers during the manufacturing process prevent dust, dirt and water to collect in the grooves of the flooring.
- Recycled Glass flooring: Recycled glass flooring is also a popular choice as healthy and hygienic flooring. Recycled glass does not allow dust, debris or allergens to collect.
