Home Living : March 1st 2011
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, March 1, 2011 3 A healthy investment » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Flooring is one of the most important choices you can make to create a healthy living environment. Timber floors are a natural alternative to other flooring options, such as vinyl and carpets, which can emit toxins into the home long after installation. University of Technology Sydney professor Margaret Burchett agreed. ''If you are getting a new smell from carpet it means you are scenting toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs),'' Prof Burchett said. She said research showed that excessive exposure to VOCs -- found in the dyes, backing and fibre of carpeting -- could cause symptoms including sore eyes, nose and throat, a feeling of dizziness, loss of concentration, headaches, mild nausea and a sensation of disorientation. In contrast, solid timber floors can be laid and finished using water-based stains or seals with no lingering odours and low VOCs for better air quality. Replacing carpet with timber flooring can also improve the lives of those sensitive to dust, including asthma- and allergy-sufferers. Unlike carpet, timber floors are less likely to trap dirt, dust mites, pollen or allergens. The durable surface of timber floors is easy to wash, sweep and disinfect, standing up to the spills and mess created by kids, particularly in high-traffic living areas. Cool in summer and warm in winter, timber flooring is also friendlier on bare feet compared to stone or tiles. After years of wear, timber floors are easy to renew by sanding and refinishing, extending the value of the investment. Timber is also a natural and fully renewable resource.
