Being parents is one of the happiest moments of your life, especially when you see your children growing up healthily every single day. There are so many things a parent can give to a child, and one of the most important things of all is a healthy and safe living environment at home.
All you need is a floor that is safe, durable and attractive enough to make your living space and surrounding comfortable, and enjoyable for the kids. Whether your children are young toddlers or adolescents, choose something that is family-friendly enough to withstand wear and tear in the long run.
- Why Child-Friendly Flooring?
Child-friendly flooring will assure the safety and health aspects of your children, thus reducing the amount of time you spend on worrying over the child’s safety. Below are some of the reasons why:
- Slip Beware! Be Safe
Whether your child is a toddler trying to learn how to walk or a grown-up kid who loves to roam around the house, minimising the likelihood of slipping accidents is a must. You can opt for flooring with high slip-resistant properties. In general, those with natural or embossed wood surfaces have relatively better slip-resistant properties. However, safety may be compromised too if the workmanship is not good.
- Oh No, Crayons!
Before you know it, your children may have created their crayon masterpieces or “craftworks” scratches on the flooring or the wall. However, this time today, with significant advancement in technology, things are a little bit different now. You are able to choose good quality flooring products that are easy to clean and highly scratch-resistant, so that your children’s “masterpieces” can be minimised and wiped clean.
High levels of toxicity in the flooring can cause allergy. And it can be harmful to human health, especially on young children with lower immune systems. You should look for products that are almost zero or low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Ask your vendor for relevant test reports. Make sure that the flooring product has E1 or E0 grading for formaldehyde emission. Also, make it a habit to clean your flooring and house regularly so that it will not accumulate dust or germs. Vinyl flooring does not collect dust mites. Thus, making your surrounding air quality cleaner and fresher.
- Go Green @ Home!
Eco-quality floor products provide an educational approach for parents to teach young children on the importance of being eco-responsible to the sustainable community. What’s
more, this type of flooring will last longer and parents can have a “peace of mind” on its long-term safety and health aspects.
