Recycled Flooring

As the world continues its efforts in living "green," many floor manufacturers are doing their part by producing eco-friendly flooring. Popular choices in green flooring are bamboo, cork, and hardwood. These flooring types are usually made from constantly replenished materials, and require less use of energy-consuming machines. Flooring consumers are even given the option of purchasing recycled flooring-an even better green flooring alternative!

A recycled floor is made from old and used products, some of them natural and biodegradable, reproduced to make attractive eco-friendly floors. The use of old products rather than new ones is more resource efficient and expends less amounts of energy. Some examples of recycled flooring include reclaimed hardwood, rubber (especially tires), and even leather tiles. These flooring types get their scraps from old houses, tanneries, furniture, and any place that provides reusable materials. Other flooring types like carpet contain biodegradable, chemical-free materials that are also recyclable, such as wool and plastic bottles.

Although the products are old and reused, recycled floors can still be just as attractive in appearance as brand new flooring. Plus, recycled or reclaimed hardwood is said to be harder and denser than new hardwood. Other recycled floors also claim to be just as durable and require the same maintenance as new flooring types. With recycled flooring, you not only get quality floors comparable to brand new flooring, you also contribute to a smarter, more environmental-friendly way of living.

I would like to correct something in this blog written by one of our staff members. Plastic bottles are not biodegradable. Wool and cotton are examples of biodegradable carpet fibers.
