Eco-Friendly Flooring Tips

When buying eco–friendly flooring, there is a lot to consider. For instance, if you are interested in bamboo flooring because it’s sustainable, make sure the manufacturer is harvesting the bamboo when it’s mature and not before then. This is just one of the ways flooring products have the potential of being greenwashed. Here are some things to consider when buying or considering eco–friendly flooring.

  • Be sure to ask about any glues, adhesives and finishes used in the manufacturing process. The glues and adhesives should be free from formaldehyde. They should also have little to no VOCs (volatile organic compounds) which are known carcinogens.
  • Bamboo and hardwood flooring often have finishes that can contain these same VOCs. Be sure to look for products with little to none of these harmful chemicals.
  • If you have ever walked into a room and smelled that new carpet odor, you are likely smelling VOCs. Be sure look for carpet with the CRI Green Label which ensures it is low in VOCs. Ask for carpet that is pre and/or post consumer recyclable.
  • If you are choosing a green flooring product, be sure any underlayments are also green. The last thing you want if you are try to go green is an eco-friendly floor covering with underlay that is not green.
  • You’ve made sure your floors are green but what about your floor cleaner? Many cleaning products can be toxic. One of the most trusted eco–friendly floor cleaning manufacturers is Bona. Many flooring professionals are very familiar with this brand in fact; it is probably the #1 recommended brand by flooring pros.
  • If you are using a mop with one time use disposable cleaning pads, consider switching to a mop with a machine washable microfiber pad as these are a much more eco–friendly option.

There are many factors which go into making a product green. For more information on going green and how it relates to flooring, visit our section on green flooring.
