If you are remodeling your Santa Clarita real estate you may want to consider the variety of green flooring options that are available. In an attempt to make your home more environmentally friendly and reduce your carbon footprint, flooring is a great place to start. From bamboo and cork to recycled carpeting, choices can be made when redoing flooring that are better for the environment than other options.
Bamboo, eucalyptus, and cork are highly renewable, sustainable wood flooring options. What may surprise many is that Linoleum is a very environmentally favorable choice for flooring, made from tree sap, cork flour, wood flour and linseed oil. Many companies are now producing carpets made from recycled materials, when looking for carpet keep your eye out for the “CRI Green Label Plus” logo. There are many environmentally friendly flooring options for your Santa Clarita home.
Not everyone is ready to add a wind turbine to their backyard or install a solar system to cover energy costs but there are smaller, more convenient ways to make your home more green, flooring being but one option. When selling your Santa Clarita property, the green improvements that you make will no doubt behoove you in the end.
