Real Wood Floors: Wood Floors Last a Lifetime

    ST. LOUIS, July 15 /CNW/ -- Preserving our environment is a concern for
many consumers these days, but for many people, recycling paper and aluminum
cans just isn't enough.  Many environmentally conscious consumers are looking
for ways to make a bigger impact to save the environment, and the answer may
be right underfoot.
    Wood floors are the most environmentally friendly flooring option
available.  Scientific evidence indicates that they use less energy and water
to produce than other flooring alternatives, and that they come from a
renewable natural resource -- trees.  Add to this the fact that wood floors
can last a lifetime, and it's easy to see how wood floors can have a huge
impact on the environment not only today, but in the future as well.
    How is that possible?  According to a study conducted by the National
Association of Home Builders called "How Long Things Last," wood floors are
rated to last 100-plus years.  No other flooring option available lasts as
long, which means other flooring alternatives will need to be replaced sooner,
using more resources to produce and creating more landfill waste to discard
the old, worn-out material.  The wood floors you install today will be there
for your lifetime and beyond, which makes them a sound environmental flooring
