Healthy floors are an option for all of us in our Nashville TN Home. We walk on them every day, but how often do we actually give our floors consideration? Most of us have probably spent our entire lives not even thinking about carpet for example. We choose carpet based on color, style, and even price, not typically what the carpet is made from. The truth is that much of the carpeting that has traditionally covered our floors contains formaldehyde.
How often do you think about what you are surrounded by every day? What you walk on, what you sit on, what you drink out of are all made up of some type of material, have you ever considered that any of these items could be toxic over a long period of time and prolonged exposure? Flooring made up of formaldehyde just sounds awful, doesn’t it? Knowing that there are harmless, earth-friendly alternatives for flooring may offer peace of mind and a healthier life in the long run.
We no longer use lead in the paints that cover our walls because we know that lead in poisonous to our health. Likewise we have rid our homes of asbestos because it has led to diseases like lung cancer and asthma. Let’s face the fact that formaldehyde is not good for us either. Luckily we now have countless natural options that include wool carpeting, cork floors, and stone tiles. We can make choices that can help our health and our homes at the same time.
