Wood Floors ? The Environmentally Friendly Florida Flooring Option

There is a growing trend in consumers interested in long-term sustainable solutions for flooring. They want high quality, eco-friendly flooring for their homes, opting more often for hardwood flooring and engineered wood flooring over other alternatives.

According to the National Wood Flooring Association, of which Quantum Floors is a member, wood floors are the most environmentally friendly flooring option available. Unlike other flooring materials, the raw materials used to make them ? trees ? can regrow after they are cut down, which replaces the material that is harvested.

We believe that every company has a duty to be environmentally responsible and we take this responsibility very seriously. All our materials are sourced from sustainably managed forests and meet stringent global environmental standards. Wood, if sourced correctly, is one of the most renewable resources in the world. Other kinds of man-made floors are produced in factories which requires huge amounts of energy and the emission of more greenhouse gases.

Wood floors also reduce the amount of waste in our landfills because they can last for many generations and require fewer raw materials to produce than other flooring options. Wood floors can be recycled into other materials. Wood is combustible, which means it can be used as fuel or as a heating source. If the wood does end up in the landfill, it is biodegradable, which means it will decompose.

One of the best ways to reduce landfill waste with wood is to utilize it for reclaimed flooring. This is a process where old wood is used to make new wood flooring. Reclaimed wood can come from a variety of sources, including wood salvaged from old barns or factories, and logs recovered from river and lake bottoms. Flooring made from reclaimed wood is truly unique and displays significant history and character.

Quantum Floors specializes in engineered hardwood, which is even more environmentally friendly than solid hardwoods. Engineered hardwood floors are wooden floors made with multiple layers of wood adhered together. Choosing engineered floors over solid wood helps to conserve our hardwood forests. For every 1 square foot of 3/4 inch thick solid wood floor, you can manufacture around 4 times that amount of engineered hardwood flooring.

At Quantum Floors, we take care to ensure that we purchase only legally sourced timber. You may therefore walk on your beautiful floor with absolute confidence that you have made the right choice for both you and our planet. Visit one of our South Florida showrooms?to?learn more.
