1. A Renewable Resource
Wood flooring is the most abundantly sustainable flooring material accessible. According to the U.S. Forest Service, the annual net growth for hardwoods is greater than the average annual removal rate, because of responsible harvesting methods. That usually means that trees are growing faster than they're being used.
In terms of CO2 removal, trees remove the maximum CO2 (a greenhouse gas) from the air when they're young, long before they are ready for harvest. By the time they are harvested, the procedure where they take in CO2 and release oxygen is slowed significantly. This means that the earth still is profiting in their "productive" oxygen emission phase.
2. Fewer Chemicals
Hardwood floors contain far fewer dangerous chemicals than carpet or linoleum. When in your home, hardwood floors are far easier to clean than carpet, maintaining your loved ones and pets clear and free of debris, dust, and chemicals brought from treated lawns.
3. Longer Life
Wood flooring use less energy and water to produce than carpet and linoleum. They continue the lifetime of a house, rather than having to be replaced every 10-15 years.
