Other Benefits Of Hardwood Flooring

In addition to a fabulous appearance, hardwood flooring offers other positive reasons for its use.

  1. Hardwood floors are non-allergenic.

  2. High quality hardwood flooring is simple to maintain and easy to clean.

  3. The natural qualities of hardwood make the flooring forgiving

  4. Timber flooring feels warm in the winter but cool in the summer.

  5. Solid hardwood has no formaldehyde that can leak into the air and compromise health.

 

Harvesting Hardwood Is Not An Ecological Disaster

In spite of what conservationists may say hardwood forests are carefully monitored. There are strict guidelines for harvesting and replanting which actually provide greater benefits to the environment. Harvesting the trees reduces or even eliminates dead, rotting timber. This is significant because all of the carbon stored in the tree during its life is released through the process of decomposition.

Similarly, young trees absorb more greenhouse gases while they are growing and are therefore more efficient at cleaning the air. Older trees that are no longer in active growth don't store the carbon as effectively any longer.

An additional ecological benefit to the use of hardy Australian timber for flooring is the ability to reclaim or recycle salvaged boards to be re-used. This has become quite popular given the patina old wood has developed. It is considered especially stylish with a distinctive finish.
