The Green Benefits Of Laminate Wood Floors
There are many environmentally friendly benefits to installing laminate wood floors in your home or office area.
This is an important factor to consider when choosing your floor coverings as we all need to lower our carbon footprint on the earth in our day and age. The level of emissions emitted through the manufacturing process of laminate wood floors is relatively low when compared to the processes used to produce other types of flooring materials. The production of laminate wood floors also uses little to no natural products which means the natural environment is not being pillaged to provide you with beautiful floor coverings.
Laminate wood floors have the added benefit of being virtually odourless and do not deteriorate quickly allowing less carbon emissions to be released into the atmosphere. Additionally, laminate wood floors do not require any adhesives during the installation process. The laminate floor boards simply click and lock into each other forming a continuous floor covering. There is also no need for nails or screws to hold the floor boards in place. You will also not need to remove and dispose of your existing floor coverings as laminate wood floors can be installed directly over most types of floor surfaces.
Unlike natural hardwood flooring, no pesticides or other dangerous compounds are used in the manufacturing process of laminate wood floors. These types of products enter the soil as well as the trees, plants and the water table which can be harmful not only to your health but to the future prospects the planet. Laminate wood flooring is easy to dispose of as it can be thermally or materially recycled.
