Press Release   •   Dec 03, 2013 17:19 SGT

Eco flooring or eco friendly wood flooring comes in both indoor and outdoor version. Home owners not only enjoy the beauty of eco wood flooring at their homes, they would also did a little part to global sustainability. 

Here are the 3 main benefits of a good Eco wood flooring can gives to your household!

Environmental Philosophy

Manufacturers of Eco wood flooring products will ensure their flooring is certified in an environmentally positive manner. Some examples of green sustainability certification are the forest stewardship council (FSC), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) as well as our local Singapore Green Label certification. 

If the wood flooring is certified with one of these eco accreditation; it will also mean to the home owners that they can have a peace of mind; ensuring that the environment is kept in good hands with such Eco flooring. There are forestry programs internationally to ensure that every tree that is cut down and send to the flooring manufacturer, at least one new tree is planted. This is to ensure that the tree timber species will not be endangered in numbers when global demand sets in.

Ensuring Better Air Quality

One of the basic ways to look into a good wood flooring is indoor air quality. Most wood flooring products need to use adhesive for the installation. Especially for multi-layered wood veneer flooring (more than 5 layers per plank), the amount of adhesive used will be much more. This may not be good for the air quality. Even for single layer or three-layered engineered wood floor structure, the quality of the adhesive used is important. Some wood flooring may be coated with anti-insects solvent that may not be good for the air quality too. 

So, it is important for home owners, not only to look for less-layered wood flooring ; checking with the flooring contractor, the eco-friendly standard of the adhesive used is equally important. Ask for additional information from the contractor to enhance your buying decision; documents such as floor score or any form of VOC test from the manufacturer helps.

Encompassing Safety Standard

Eco wood flooring gives an overall safety standard to your home. 3 points to take into consideration. Fire Resistance. Slip Resistance and Impact Resistance. Good quality Eco wood flooring products assure that these 3 factors for safety standard are taken care of.
