Press Release   •   Jun 20, 2013 17:17 SGT

High quality living lifestyle of today's home owners opens up the demand for Eco healthy flooring or Eco Flooring products in Singapore. Consumers today are willing to pay a premium for quality and a better way of living. Eco friendly flooring products with good health standards benefit the consumers and our environment today in many ways.

Here are the three reasons why.

1. Better Air Quality for Indoors

One important feature of a good Eco healthy flooring product is having good health standard such as low in volatile organic compound (VOCs) as well as formaldehyde emission. VOCs and formaldehyde can be the cause of most respiratory health issues especially when the flooring product is put in an enclosed area for a relatively longer period of time.

Home owners may also consider good quality engineered wood flooring; as natural wood material does not collect any dust mites that are possible potential agents for asthma allergy. Other than that while looking at real wood flooring, it is also important to take note of the adhesive involved in bonding the wooden floor to the sub floor. Good quality engineered wood flooring will use reputable eco friendly adhesive brands which has less or zero in VOCs.

2. Protects the Environment

Use of Eco flooring protects the environment in 3 basic ways. Firstly, the manufacturers of eco flooring products will make sure the raw materials comes from sustainable resources. When it comes to wood flooring, they will make sure the flooring has eco accreditation such as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).Secondly, the manufacturing process for the product has to be environmentally friendly as well.

Even upon disposal of the flooring product, Eco flooring will ensure that it can be renew, recycled or reused in various ways; therefore in this way, environment landfill will be much minimized. 

3. Long term maintenance savings

Eco flooring products ensures quality plays an important role in it. Its cost effective properties ensure that long term maintenance cost are largely minimized. 

One example is high end resilient flooring, a popular indoor flooring option in Singapore today. Due to its easy and glueless installation features, the flooring can be re-used over and over again. Say after years of using the flooring, the home owner can bring along his or her existing HERF into the new home. Therefore, in this way, it provides long term maintenance savings for the home owners!

Eco healthy flooring not only has a wide variety of designs for the home owners to choose from; it also helps in one way of another to improve the health standards of living especially in an enclosed area. Home owners, on the other hand, can also do his or her little part to help in improving the global sustainability nature of our existing forests.
