Reasons To Consider Ecologically Friendly Green FlooringMore and more people around Southern California and throughout the state are choosing ecologically friendly flooring options for their renovations or their new home.

The number and quality of “green flooring” options have both grown substantially in the last ten years, and it is very likely that they will continue to increase — especially in California.

At Carpet Wagon, we’ve received a number of comments from our customers about their desire to work toward a better environment. In response, we’ve ensured that we stock a full selection of green flooring, including the latest styles available.

Styles Of Green Flooring For You To Choose From

There are many different types of green flooring, so you will be able to find something to suit any decor and style of home.

Perhaps the most common type of green flooring is the bamboo floor. Bamboo flooring has become immensely popular within a very short time because it is easy to maintain, relatively inexpensive, and is an easily renewable resource.

Bamboo is a very strong material, but it also grows very quickly. Likewise, growing bamboo helps to strengthen the biosphere. Thus, bamboo is truly a “win-win” option in the world of ecologically friendly green flooring.

Most people don’t realize, however, that there are also many other options:

Green Carpet

Carpet can be produced using ecologically sound and safe methods. Green carpet is of a similar quality, texture, and color to conventional options. However, it is produced using few industrial chemicals, through a more environmentally responsible process.

Reclaimed Hardwood

Hardwood, of course, comes from trees and can be a sustainable resource. However, the creation of conventional hardwood floors can have an environmental impact. Reclaimed hardwood can be superior: It is essentially “recycled” and reconditioned to meet your needs.

Cork Flooring

Cork flooring has great acoustic properties that can help you insulate a room from noise. It also helps with thermal insulation, keeping a room cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It is produced by removing the cork bark without destroying the tree.

Rubber Flooring

While rubber flooring is more typical for commercial projects, it can also be valuable for some areas of the home. People enjoy rubber flooring in a home gym, for example. Like cork flooring, it can be produced with minimal environmental disruption.
