Hardwood floors? Carpeting? How about air purifying hardwood floors that use a brand-new technology to keep the air clean? This is a breakthrough in technology that may turn out to be the simple answer for homes that have residents suffering from asthma or other respiratory conditions.
There's a new type of hardwood flooring manufactured by Lauzon, a Québec flooring company, which is the first of its type in the world. The line of flooring is called Pure Genius and it has been designed to break down toxins in the air. In fact, the effect it provides is much like planting trees in your home.
Many people that are dealing with asthma are using air quality control methods in their homes and stick with hardwood floors. Many just can't handle the dust and debris accumulation that naturally occurs in a carpet. For these people, the bar has been raised a level when it comes to their flooring options.
Many people aren't aware of the toxic substances that can be found in the home. Many types of furniture emit formaldehyde into the air. Quite often the air inside is much more polluted than the outside air and can lead to respiratory issues and allergies.
The technology is activated by artificial or natural light or by movement. As a result, the air in a room that has this type of flooring can be kept up to 85% cleaner. A pure, constant supply of air is regenerated on a constant basis.
The floor is also easier to clean than most hardwood floors. You'll find that the hardwood cleaners that you use on the floors will better disburse. The air will be fresher, the floors will be cleaner and you'll be provided with a guarantee that lasts anywhere from 30 years up to 35 years.
Not only does this type of flooring serve a useful purpose but it also looks great! This new hardwood floor can be found at flooring retailers in Canada. If you're looking for a green flooring solution for your home, you may want to check it out.
