What is the thing that remains in our physical contact most of the time in our life?
It is flooring where we live. We walk, sit and lye on it. Be it our home’s or office floor. But in our home we spend most of the time and mostly be in direct contact without wearing slippers and with very light clothing.
So our home’s flooring should be so safe for our health. But we should not think of ourselves only while doing any activity of life. We need to think equally of our environment. If our environment is free from all hazardous effects and is of resources-rich it would be better for our health. Better the environment better our health and well-being.
It means we need to be equally cautious while selecting a type of best flooring for our home. It should not be of simply highly quality or competitive in its price. It should equally be quite harmless for our health, long-lasting and does not impact our home environment negatively.
