How the Flooring Industry Affects Plants and Animals

Satinder Chawla

The flooring industry is closely linked to our environment. Flooring, most often made of wood impacts our large stretches of beautiful forests. While wood is a renewable resource, it is only truly renewable if it is harvested strategically with an eye toward renewal.

Unfortunately, the flooring industry and lumber harvesters do not always adhere to these forward-thinking methods. Instead, the industry falls prey to the need for speed in order to make money from flooring products. This leads to what is called irresponsible deforestation.

Deforestation led by the lumber industry has not always had a shining track record. Loggers have built illegal roads to access remote forests leading these forests to be lost swiftly. Irresponsible deforestation called “clear cutting” is the process of cutting down entire forests with a clear cut pattern. In the aftermath, hundreds of acres of forests are leveled, leave animals and plants uprooted and homeless. Eighty percent of land animals call forests home, so you can imagine how the leveling of an entire forest can impact thousands of species.

Deforestation impacts animals habitats, food sources, and shelter. When an animals consistent homed is wiped away in a matter of days, they do not have the ability to find a new way to thrive. If animals do migrate to a new forest habitat, they often encounter danger and peril. Animals in transit are at risk for being hit by vehicles. Removing habitats also disrupts the delicate balance of an ecosystem. Sunlight that was once shielded by trees is now glaringly strong, causing plants to die. Those plants may have been a food source for specific insects. The cascade of effects can be long and devastating.

Luxury Wood Flooring

While large budget home improvement stores have flooring products, they only offer a fraction of the selection of what is available. And that too for the mass end of the market. Span Floors has a clear focus on the luxury wood flooring market where consumers shop for floors based on high aesthetics, premium construction and top quality installations.

The Flooring Industry and Environmental Damage

Satinder Chawla

The world is shifting every year toward being more environmentally conscious and protective. Regardless of where you live, it is important to be a global citizen, aware of how your consumer behaviors impact the environment. A project that may be simple, such as adding new flooring to your home or building, has the power to contribute positively or negatively to the planet. Here is how the flooring industry has had major effects on flooding in Southeast Asia.

The flooring industry is closely linked to the environment. Wood flooring is one of the most popular elements to renovations and new construction. Wood is also a potentially renewable resource, which is positive. However, in order for wood to be renewable, the process of acquiring wood from forests needs to be responsible and sustainable.

Unfortunately, many groups and regions that participate in the lumber industry do not follow these sustainable practices. Deforestation can be done in multiple ways. When it is done with the environment in mind, it is done slowly, strategically, retaining some of the trees in a region while removing others. This type of tree harvesting simulates natural deforestation which has been occurring in nature for thousands of years. For example, when a thunderstorm with high winds ravages a forested area, often trees fall. But in the aftermath forests rebound as is the natural cycle of our planet.

Managing Large Projects with Complete Ease of Mind

Satinder Chawla

Are you in the middle of a renovation or construction project? The word project is exactly what describes a large-scale build or update.

From the beginning of the project where the vision emerges to the end, where the finishing touches are added, there are hundreds of decisions to be made.

When your project is moving ahead at full force, the time to make thoughtful design decisions isn’t available. Customers may end up making hasty decisions they later regret.

Span Floors knows that you are not just shopping for the best flooring, you’re managing a large project. You have demands coming from all directions and deadlines to meet. That’s why we offer design guidance and consulting from our flooring experts.

Since nationally the popularity of wood flooring is rising exponentially (we see more and more homes, offices, hotels, shops etc installing it) and wood floors being rather a new subject for us as Indians (India has been traditionally a stone and tiles market because of availability), it is important that we get to know it a bit more..
