Unlike most floor coverings, wood floors come from a natural resource that is sustainable. Long gone are the days when timber was cut down with little thought for the long term consequences on the nation’s forests. Today most timber is cut from forests that are carefully managed to ensure continued resources in the future.

In fact, according to U.S. Forest Service statistics, almost twice as much hardwood timber is added every year through new growth as is harvested. Additionally, there is more standing hardwood timber today than there was 50 years ago.

The EPA has said that indoor air quality is one of our top health threats. Installed in the home, wood floors help contribute to a healthy living environment. Hard surface flooring such as hardwood floors does not harbor dust mites or molds. That creates better air quality for all inhabitants, but especially for those who suffer from allergies.

The hard surface of wood floors also helps avoid artificial substances such as pesticides that can accumulate on some floor coverings.
