Domestic Hardwood Flooring The Green Choice

By FAF Staff Writer, (230 words) Posted in Green Flooring on September 28, 2010
There are (63) comments permalink

When it comes to hardwood flooring, the primary ‘green’ concept is to use renewable products from properly managed forests that use renewable energy resources during manufacturing. The green component further extends to products that leave a minimal carbon footprint in packaging and transportation from source to destination. Domestically harvested and produced hardwood meets these criteria in all respects. If you are looking for wood floors, consider domestic hardwood flooring.

Almost all forests and wood lots where trees are harvested are managed so that forest re–growth exceeds removal over an extended period of time. Statistics indicate that in the United States there is more hardwood grown annually than is being harvested; and much of this is used for flooring.

Manufacturers of hardwood floors are becoming more efficient when it comes to adhering to green and eco–friendly flooring practices. In the past the wood flooring industry used economy grades of rough sawn lumber for flooring production which yielded 50% and often less in usable flooring product because of various inherent defects in the raw lumber. The rejects with the dust and chips were burned or sent to landfills. Today this wastage is used to fire boilers used in kilns and in co–generation of on–site electricity with the dust being used for fuel pellets and briquettes. Some of the residue is used to manufacture paper and composition board.

These measures make domestically produced hardwood, used for flooring, the quintessential green option.
