A few years ago no one had the slightest idea that someday we would be so technically and ideally advanced that it will be possible for us to have even floors which are eco friendly. It is very important today for every person to be environment conscious and use as much less energy possible, recycle and use materials which are biodegradable. Green homes are the talk of the time these days. Eco friendly flooring options are many these days so you can choose from a wide range.
Cork, bamboo, even recyclable wood are some great options. The wood used is eco friendly and more sawdust than real wood is used to save trees. They are easy to maintain as well, given you know the ways. The reason behind this is that they are sensitive to constant dampening and dust. So, special products and methods have to be used to keep them clean. Avoid using harsh chemicals and avoid rough scrubbing as well.
