3 Eco-Friendly Flooring Options, New York, New York

Many business owners are looking for ways to reduce their company’s carbon footprint. One way to may your facilities more sustainable is with your choice of flooring. There are several environmentally friendly options available, according to the team at O'Connor's Carpet Center in the Bronx, NY. Here are three of their top choices.

3 Sustainable Commercial Flooring Options 

1. Bamboo

Looking for a wood surface that will look sleek and polished without contributing to deforestation? Bamboo is a fast-growing, highly sustainable material with a decent level of hardness. It grows to adulthood in just five years, unlike hardwood trees, which require decades to reach maturity. It comes in a wide variety of natural-looking colors to suit all decor. Bamboo is also far less susceptible to water damage than other wood varieties.

2. Tile

flooringModern tile comes in several sustainable materials, including recycled glass and reclaimed ceramics. This flooring is also durable, moisture resistant, and incredibly easy to maintain. It’s perfect for your commercial property’s bathroom or in restaurant kitchens. Many options have anti-skid coatings to reduce the risk of slip-and-fall accidents.

3. Wool Carpeting

If you prefer carpeted floors, there are natural fibers available that don’t contain petroleum products. Wool is one such material. This textile, gathered from sheep, requires little processing and its manufacture emits few toxins into the air. Additionally, it’s both stain-resistant and moisture-wicking, making it one of the easiest carpeting materials to maintain.
