Can your choice of flooring actually affect your health?

July 5, 2021

Your flooring is one of the most important parts of your home.Many homeowners take into account the look of their flooring and how it will beautify their home. But how can flooring affect your health? As many of us are spending more time in our homes walking around and working at home, we may experience more back and joint pain. Sometimes this can be related to the type of flooring you have. For example stone , ceramic tile and porcelain can be very hard on your back and joints. From first hand experience we had ceramic tile when we first moved into our home. We had the ceramic tile for quite a few years and then we installed luxury vinyl . We felt like we were walking on a cloud in comparison. We were quite surprised at the difference it made for comfort and beauty. And another thing, when we had the tile, and we would drop things,( which tends to happen to us frequently) the glass or random item would break and shatter everywhere! Not all the time , but a lot of times now our glass will not break!

Another concern for the health of your family is the carpeting. Carpeting is known to have many issues. For example ,carpets may trap pollutants like dust mites, pet dander, dirt , dust pesticides and the list goes on. Since children tend to spend the most time on floors there are many health concerns for them, for exposure of many chemicals.The cleaning solution used to clean carpets usually contain toxic chemicals, as well.

The benefits of luxury vinyl are :

  • Easy to care for

  • Looks like real wood

  • Low cost

  • Comfort and health of joints and back

  • Waterproof, Durable Core
