  •   Almost every decorating or architectural magazine that you seeon the stands contains at least one article about beingenvironmentally conscious when you build or renovate.

Choosing theappropriate flooring for your home or office is a major decision- one that you will probably live with for a long time.

  •   The rapid disappearances of our forests and rainforests have ledto the research and development of new products in flooring andthe reemergence of some old favorites. Cork and bamboo areforerunners in this endeavor.

      Cork flooring has beenpopular in the United States since the 1950s. The avocado andgold colored carpet of the 70s temporarily replaced itsprominence in the flooring market, but cork has now found newacceptance in environmentally conscious homes.

While the obvious character and patina of these woodsare lovely and desirable, the cost can be somewhat prohibitiveat around $30 per square foot.

      Linoleum is resilient and is made from renewable substances ofthe earth or recycled remnants, but linoleum itself cannot berecycled because of the glue used to install it. Still, the longlife gained from using linoleum has made it a popular choice forhomes and offices.

  •   Advantages of Choosing Environment-Friendly Flooring OverCarpeting

The truth isthat no matter how fanatical you are about vacuuming andshampooing your carpet, residue, mold and mildew will accumulatein the fibers beneath. The carpet then becomes an allergenmagnet, hording germs that can affect humans and pets who comein contact with it.
