Mohawk Sustainability Estimator: Taking a New Eco-Friendly Approach to Flooring
In 2023, the brand new Mohawk Sustainability Estimator helps homeowners to understand the eco-friendly impact of their flooring. Overall, most Illinois residents probably do not know the effect of their floor’s carbon footprint, quantitatively or otherwise.
As part of their global initiative, Mohawk helps homeowners to enhance their sustainability in 2023 and beyond. Here’s the rundown on the new tool.
The Importance of Sustainable Flooring
With the Mohawk Sustainability Estimator, homeowners gain insight into their flooring’s eco-friendly nature. From a financial standpoint, sustainable floors tend to be more cost-effective. In fact, sustainable flooring incorporates recycled materials.
Additionally, eco-friendly flooring avoids volatile organic compounds (VOCs). As a warning, VCOs cause headaches, respiratory issues, and other health issues. Aside from being affordable and sustainable, eco-friendly flooring limits the use of these toxic chemicals during production to create safer environments everywhere.
