5 Reasons Canadian-made hardwood is so much better

It seems like it would be a simple decision when choosing hardwood flooring: choosing Canadian-made wood vs. imported wood. But, it’s not. Imported wood makes up a huge proportion of the flooring options available, especially from China and the United States. In fact, there is an epidemic of illegally harvested Russian wood that is shipped to China, manufactured with toxic chemicals, and sold in Canada with a Canadian label (even when it is obvious that the type of wood is Asian). Check out this Global…

What kind of flooring is best for allergy sufferers?

The answer might surprise you!

Did you know that 1 in 6 Canadians suffers from seasonal allergies? The biggest causes are pollen and spores from plants, mold and fungi, which have reached record-breaking levels in the last few years. Most of us have become keenly aware of pollen counts, which measure the quantity of pollen particles in the air, because these levels can severely affect our lives. Coughing, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes are only the mild symptoms – many allergy sufferers also have asthmatic reactions and have to take medication to improve their respiratory health.

Allergy sufferers know that indoor air quality can really improve their daily life and reduce the needs for medications. But, taking steps to keep homes dust and particle-free can be a monumental task, and it seems as though a hardwood or laminate floor could make the job easier. But does having a hard floor actually keep a home cleaner? Does carpet make allergies better, or worse?
