    Sustainable Flooring: The Green Benefits of Hardwood

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Thanks to the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), hardwood as a flooring option is greener than ever. If you’re interested in having sustainable flooring installed in your home, make sure the wood you choose for your flooring option is from a sustainable wood that is labeled as either SFI- or FSC-certified lumber.

    A sustainable forest is a forest where seedlings replace trees as they are felled. Seedlings are normally grown in a green house until they are strong enough that growers can be certain they’ll grow into mature trees in the wild. Managers of sustainable forests are usually quite selective about which trees they’ll be felling as well and don’t clear entire plots of land all at once.
     
    • More Biodiversity
    You can feel good knowing your sustainable flooring came from a forest that promotes biodiversity. A sustainable forest is designed to make sure consumers can have the wood products they love without taking away the homes of animals. They’re also made in a more eco-friendly manner using manufacturing methods that help preserve air and water quality.

    • Fewer VOCs
    Many sustainable hardwood flooring providers also use fewer preservatives and chemicals that result in volatile organic chemicals, or VOCs. VOCs are created in a process known as off-gassing, and if enough of them are found in the air in your home, your indoor air quality will suffer. As a result, hardwood flooring from sustainable forests is good for the health of humans as well as the health of the environment.

    • Completely Biodegradable
    Many SFI- and FSC-certified hardwoods are also 100% natural, which makes them completely biodegradable. Unlike synthetic forms of flooring, hardwood can return to the earth and biodegrade in the soil without harming the environment.

    A Look at How Carpets Are Made

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Today’s carpets are woven in state-of-the-art factories using highly technical processes. Watch this video to take a look at how carpets are made!

    Most carpets on today’s market are made of synthetic materials. A carpet starts out as many polyester or nylon fibers which are gathered and made into wide bands of fabric. The fabric is made into thin threads and wound onto spools. One standard 144-inch wide carpet is made from 1,440 spools of yarn. Many tufting needles are needed to stitch the yarn into a canvas backing. Then, the carpet is dyed and married to a polypropylene backing.

    4 Reasons to Incorporate Granite Countertops into Your Home

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Granite is one of the most sought-after materials for countertops in America right now, and not just because of its aesthetic appeal. Granite offers homeowners a slew of benefits, including strength, cleanliness, value, and stain resistance. Here are a few of the advantages of granite countertops:

    1. Granite Is Durable
    Granite spends millions of years underground under constant pressure from extremely hot molten rock before it ends up in a home. For this reason, quarried granite is one of the strongest natural stone materials for home countertops. Granite is resistant to scratches, chips, and stains, making it the perfect material for your kitchen.

    2. Granite Is Easy to Clean
    Granite is one of the most easy to clean and sanitary countertop surfaces available. Granite is non-porous, meaning it’s resistant to mold, mildew, and bacteria growth. These are all very attractive qualities for a kitchen or bathroom countertop.
     
    3. Granite Adds Value to Your Home
    Granite countertops are also a great investment, because they can add resale value to your home. Homes with professionally installed granite surfaces consistently command a higher selling price than those without.  Prospective homebuyers are attracted to all of the sophistication that granite has to offer.

    4. Granite Is Heat- and Water-Resistant
    Finished granite can withstand temperatures up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit without blistering or burning. That means you can stick a hot skillet fresh off of the flame directly onto your countertop without worrying. Additionally, because it’s extremely dense, granite is also water-resistant and won’t absorb any moisture.

    Carpet Mill Outlet Stores offers slab granite countertops and installation to the residents of Colorado. Look through our wide selection of granite colors, marbling patterns, and styles to find the perfect match for your home. We also offer a wide selection of carpet and flooring options.
