It is so easy to buy products without knowing where they came from and the path they took before they landed on your doorstep. For many goods – T-shirts, kitchen appliances, your dog’s favorite toy – it hardly matters. That information often has little to do with the final look and performance that sets it apart from any other T-shirt, appliance or toy. Not so for hardwood floors.
Contrary to what you may think, purchasing hardwood floors does not destroy forests. Since wood is a renewable resource, sustainable forest management has made wood flooring one of the most environmentally friendly flooring options available.
Hardwood floors are known to increase a home’s visual appeal and resale value, but they do much more than just boost the homeowner’s future financial health. Hardwood floors are also better for your family’s physical health!
There is no denying that hardwood floors are beautiful. They add value to a home and they generally make for a great investment. That said, many people still shy away from installing hardwood floors, or even exploring how and where they could be used, due to a handful of myths. It’s time to debunk those myths for good!
