As simple as it would be, a good quality flooring product simply portrays 3 main characteristics, health, safety as well as giving the home owners and its family a better home living lifestyle. Nothing dramatic at all. These are basically the three things a home owner may need to look into when it comes to shopping for a good quality flooring that will last anyone for a longer period of time.

Health Matters

Ask the vendor directly whether the particular flooring has specific test reports and certifications to show that the flooring is okay for the human health. Make sure the flooring is low in formaldehyde emission rate. An recommended EN Standard will be E1 or E0 rating. Flooring with high formaldehyde emission may cause harmful effect especially with people with poor respiratory system or immune system.

Other than that, also look at whether the flooring is okay for the environmental health as well in which especially during disposal whether the flooring product could cause any pollution or unnecessary landfill waste; rule of the thumb, always look for recommended Eco labels while shopping for the flooring.

Safety Prospects 

2 basic specs you may need to look at is the slip resistant standard as well as the fire resistant standard. Such good quality flooring product has what it takes to ensure 100% safety whether the flooring is installed at home or at the workplace. Workplace safety has recently been one of the top concerns among employers in Singapore today, hence we need to always ensure that the flooring product used is of high safety standards. Some wood-embossed designed flooring has an added advantage in ensuring a high resistance standard to slipping.

While slipping may be unavoided, it is always best to look at whether the flooring has high level of impact resistance. This is to reduce the impact of injury should slipping accidents occur.  Hence, the home owners should always ask the flooring contractors or their interior designers whenever they are in doubt.  

A Better Living Lifestyle

Good quality flooring provides comfort to your feet. With the wide variety of designs and colors available for the home owners to choose from, home owners today are able to create that interior design style one preferred.
