Keep the Environment Safe and Sound
Hardwoods are known to be the best types of floors that you can use, simply because they can last for years in fact, a century. This is especially true if you can take care of your flooring surface properly.
The problem with hardwoods, however, is that it also takes several years before they will mature. Most of them may have to be grown fifty years or more, before they can be cut down and use as lumber. There are those who try to make use of them even if they are not fully matured, but then, we all know the effects: uncontrolled floods and soil erosion.
It is no wonder that there are several forest councils that have been established, all of them wanting to control the harvest of trees for whatever reason. There are only certain number of trees that can be cut down, and there are rules and regulations that they need to follow.
Wool provides a good alternative, particularly when you want an environment-friendly flooring for your home. Wool comes from sheep, which uses it to keep themselves warm. When you remove the wool, these sheep will still be able to reproduce them, so you do not really have to be concerned about running out of materials to use.
Keep Yourselves Hassle-free
One of the potential challenges you are going to face when you are using carpets is the soil. Dust, dirt, and grime tend to not only soil the carpets; but they can also go deeper into the fibers, making them a lot more difficult to remove. You may have to resort to using certain kinds of cleaning solutions or hot water extraction just to lift the dirt from the carpet.
With wool, you do not have to hassle yourself for the simple reason that it has high resistant to oil. It can release soil around 25 percent more than its synthetic counterparts. The outer layer of the fiber, which is called the cuticle, is not only smooth but is also filled with scales, which then prevents the soil from getting into the very core of the wool fiber.
Hardwoods and even carpets should not be exposed to spills and water, since they are sure to cause a lot of damage. Moreover, they should not be placed in areas that have high moisture content, or else, they will rot in a very short time. Wool, on the other hand, can absorb moisture in its vapor form. This can be attributed to the protective membrane of the fiber.
Wool can also last for a long time. It does not lose its natural form, thanks to the elasticity that it has. This means that even when you are going to step on it a lot of times, it will come back to its original dimension.
