Once you decide to use green flooring, it is one of the finest moves you can make for the environment and for your home. It is good for the health of your home and for your family members. Carpets made of wool, flooring materials made of plant materials such as sisal or green flooring options such as marmoleum and linoleum are ideal options.
Green flooring care and maintenance is crucial to maintain the quality of your flooring while enhancing their aesthetics. Every conventional cleaning method that we typically use, are not even remotely close to being environment friendly. Green flooring care is not just to care for your green flooring but also to use green products in every facet of cleaning and maintenance.
The first step you should take for floor care is to renounce the use of any harsh chemicals or detergents. There are many herbal cleaning products and environment friendly detergents that can be used to clean flooring. These are environment friendly and also absolutely harmless to human skin or for kids. They have pleasant aromas, natural extracts of plants and are hypoallergenic as well.
Along with green cleaning agents, it is important to use materials such as mops and others that are made from recyclable materials. Mops with nylons must be avoided since nylons are petroleum-based and are also not very friendly to you or your family’s health.
Flooring maintenance would require a bit more extensive efforts. You must ensure that caulked areas remain caulked so that your home insulation doesn’t take a hit, surging your energy consumption northwards. Every flooring material has a certain level of resistivity which would enhance its longevity. The flooring should be treated well, repaired as and when needed and preventive coatings such as lamination’s should be used to keep the original green flooring material at its best shape and form.
