Best Eco-Friendly Flooring
At Harry Katz Carpet One on Long Island, we carry many options for flooring including a wide variety of ECO-friendly and green products. From bamboo flooring to cork flooring and linoleum, we have the styles and brands to make your shopping experience easy on you and easy on the environment!
Is Bamboo Flooring Environmentally Friendly?
Sustainable and replenishable, all with a look as great as hardwood? Bamboo has come onto the flooring scene as an ECO-friendly alternative to other options due to its ability to withstand multiple harvests…a true renewable resource. Bamboo also has a high tolerance for moisture (think about where it comes from!) so will be sure to last in more humid conditions. As with any of our flooring options here at Katz Carpet One, bamboo can be finished and cut in a wide variety of colors and sizes to fit any vision…and any room.
CORK Flooring Benefits
Not just for wine stoppers anymore! Cork is emerging as a popular flooring choice for its many benefits, including one major one to the environment: cork can be harvested without even damaging a tree. Cork comes from the bark of the tree, not the wood, so does not require any trees to be cut down.
Looking for a floor to withstand your ever-growing shoe collection? Cork is soft and will bounce back from indents caused by high heels and heavy furniture. Cork’s resiliency also makes it the perfect solution to noise: cork is a natural sound-reducer.
On top of all that, cork is fire-resistant and hypoallergenic, not to mention the beautiful and unique look of it makes a statement!
Most Environmentally Flooring
While linoleum is a manufactured floor, all of the materials used to make it, including oil, cork dust, ground hardwood, pine tree resin and limestone powder are biodegradable, natural and renewable. Even the pigments used to color linoleum contain no heavy metals and are environmentally conscious. Linoleum floors are not only sustainable, they’re durable, too and come in many different styles and colors.
