Hardwood floors are a healthier alternative to carpet. Hardwood does not trap or harbor dust, or dust mites like most floor coverings, which means better air quality. Hardwood is especially good for people suffering from allergies. Hardwood floors greatly reduce the accumulation of toxins on floors.
Hardwood floors last beyond a lifetime. They are one of the most desirable floor coverings and are a great way to increase the resale value of your home. Considering the durability of hardwood flooring, you are saving money when you choose hardwood.
Unlike most floor coverings, hardwood floors come from a natural resource that is sustainable. Most timber today comes from forests that are carefully managed to ensure continued resources in the future. Almost twice as much hardwood timber is added every year through new growth as harvested.
