We like to think we sell the most beautiful flooring in Auckland. We also happen to sell the healthiest flooring in Auckland. One of the most surprising benefits of wooden flooring, be it hardwood flooring or engineered wood flooring, is that it is hypoallergenic (relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction), which makes it a hugely attractive option for allergy sufferers. Our wooden floors don’t harbour microorganisms or pesticides tracked in from outdoors as other flooring surfaces can. They minimize the build-up of dust, mould, and animal dander, which helps to improve the overall indoor air quality in Auckland homes and businesses – and they make those properties look like a million dollars at the same time. Talk about a win-win!
Reducing exposure to allergens is a very important consideration in New Zealand. Our country has one of the highest rates of allergy sufferers anywhere in the world. For example, it is estimated that 20% of our population suffers from hayfever. And when it comes to all allergies, one in three of us is affected. Much of this is down to our extremely high pollen count from the grasses and trees that grow right on the doorsteps of our cities. Pollen spores can travel hundreds of kilometres and can blow through open windows and doors, or be brought indoors on footwear. When you add in dust that accumulates in every Kiwi home, as well as pet fur and other microscopic particles, you have a cocktail of nasty things that can reduce air quality, and make breathing very difficult.
This is particularly true of buildings with carpeted floors. Carpet fibres trap all of these things, and because the floor is one of the single biggest structures within a home or business, the potential for these particles to be released into the air and make life very uncomfortable and unhealthy is enormous. On the other hand, with our wooden flooring, there’s nowhere for things like microorganisms or pesticides to accumulate. A quick and easy clean keeps the surface hypoallergenic and healthy.
Improving indoor air quality where you live and work, and making it easier for everyone to breathe, is a big bonus of our beautiful floors. So if the health of your family, friends, employees and customers is important to you, and you’re pondering new flooring surfaces for your home or commercial premises, talk to us about our customised wooden flooring solutions. They’re not only the best-looking floors in Auckland, but they’re also the healthiest.
