Green Remodel - Flooring

Green Flooring

There is a wide variety of green flooring in the market place today. What makes flooring green:

durability non-toxicity renewable sourcing transportation

The challenge is to determine which of these qualities are most important and how they reflect aesthetically. No product has everything so it often amounts to comparing apples to oranges and making what seems like the best choice.

Finished Concrete Floors

When used as the finish floor, concrete containing high fly-ash content serves several green purposes:

It saves the expense of installing another flooring material, like wood or carpet. Make us of an industrial by-product Does not harbor allergens, dust and mold, like carpet

The trick is to look for an experienced installer, not necessarily someone who specializes in sidewalks and driveways and is trying to learn something new.

Linoleum and Vinyl

Many people confuse sheet vinyl flooring with "linoleum", as natural mistake. Linoleum makes a better choice than vinyl because it's manufactured with less toxic materials.  Because linoleum does not have the same protective surface, it must be polished occasionally resist stains. Be prepared for an odor from the linseed oil that off-gases an aldehyde, which is not toxic for most people and will dissipate.

Bamboo

Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource and also a durable flooring choice. It comes in two grain patterns - flat sawn or vertical grain - and typically with either a blond or caramelized finish.

Be aware that some certified engineered flooring contains urea-formaldehyde as the internal adhesive with only the wear layer (4 mils to 6 mils thick) actually made of certified materials. Other brands, however, are made with formaldehyde-free adhesives and are definitely preferable. EcoTimber is one company selling these flooring products.

Cork

Cork is beautiful and has natural anti-bacterial qualities, is soft underfoot, is made from recycled materials, and comes from a renewable source. It's typically made from the waste cork left over after bottle stoppers are manufactured. The only downside is that cork trees grow only in a limited geographical area in the Mediterranean. So, it is a limited resource for the future.

Natural Carpets

Carpeting for a green home should be made of natural materials, such as wool or sisal with jute backing. Although, natural wool sounds great from a green standpoint, its desirability depends on where the...
