First and foremost you can’t really go wrong with wood flooring. There is nothing that says green like wood flooring. From the tree to your floor you can skip all the harsh chemicals and manufacturing of other types of flooring. Just think back to when you were a child running through the woods. The smell of the pines or the wet leaves freshly fallen on the ground. Wood flooring can take you back to these times when it was you and nature clean, refreshing, and beautiful.

Whether it’s your children or your pets everyone wants clean air. Enhance your home with the best air quality you can provide through wood flooring.

If you walk out into your backyard and look at some of the bigger trees one thing you need to remember is how long have they been there. Most trees are hundreds of years old, which means a great wood flooring finish could last in your home for hundreds of years. This will save on the budget in the long run not having to replace flooring every few years. The less you have to spend on new flooring the more you can splurge on other parts of the house.

Last but by no means least in the going green idea is when and if you have to rip up this flooring or even a part of it what to do with it? This one is easy, its wood you burn it. Imagine what you might be burning if you went with other types of flooring. Wood is natural when you’re done with it you can burn it and it will not cause harm to the environment. At some point you may have to replace a portion of the flooring for one reason or another. Just have yourself a backyard campfire with your family or friends and burn that wood away.
