Waxing Wood Flooring for Sustainability

Using wood flooring in our homes have various advantages but one benefit that truly stands out nowadays is related to environmental sustainability. When we use wooden floors in our homes, we are actually helping the environment.

Most of us are aware nowadays that one of our biggest problem as a human race is climate change. This problem stems from too much carbon dioxide emission that happens when we burn materials like coal, gasoline and wood as fuel. As we use cement and tiles for flooring, burning of fuels are also needed in the production of these flooring materials. When we use wood flooring instead of cement and tiles, we are helping reduce the need for more fuel burning and carbon dioxide emission thus we are helping in the mitigation of the global climate change problem.

When we can maintain and preserve our wood flooring for a very long time, we are contributing to the sustainability of resources in our planet. But the key is using and maintaining wood flooring for a long time, sometimes decades. One important practice that significantly increase the lifetime of our wood flooring is waxing. Waxing for centuries have been used to preserve wood and protect wood from elements that can lead to its decay.

Waxing regularly will help avoid the dingy and deteriorating effect of spillage. Sometimes we cannot avoid having accidents like unintentional spillage on our wood flooring. At times like this, we rush to clean our wood flooring with soap and water. But we must bear in mind that the spillage that occur can soak our wooden floor and will slowly result to decay of wood from the inside. However, if our wood flooring were regularly waxed, it will have an outside coating that prevents the liquid spills in dipping and penetrating the inner parts of wood flooring.

In our modern times, good quality waxes used for waxing wood flooring have been developed and made easily available to us who needed them. One of this is the Touch of Beeswax formula made from natural and organic solvents. Application of this formula will not only protect and preserve your wood flooring from decay and deterioration but will also give your wood flooring a polished and lustrous look. After applying, your wood flooring will have a rich natural shiny hue that will imbue your home with a fresh dignified and charming woody ambience.

After waxing our wood flooring with a good quality wax, we can have the satisfying results for a long time. As we regularly practice waxing, we can enjoy the charm and elegance of our wood flooring that are now invulnerable to decay and dirt attacks. We then can serenely experience the natural loveliness of our wooden flooring. And with this pleasant experience comes the knowing that what we are doing are also in line with sustaining our planet. We feel peace knowing that our lifestyle, including waxing our lovely wood flooring is helping the environment. We are then also giving a gift to the future generations who desperately needs our sustainable lifestyle so they can also enjoy living in our beautiful and wonderful Mother Earth.
