From the point of view of protecting the environment, you can resort to natural flooring to make your home eco friendly. These type of flooring are normally done with renewable and sustainable materials which have no or minimum impact on the environment.
Use of natural stones can be a very good option for the flooring of your home. The natural stones are available in a number of designs, patterns and colors. They can be polished further to give them a glowing and shining appearance.
The sedimentary stones are the perfect choice if you are looking for something unique as well attractive. The stones should be fitted by expert artisans to match the patterns properly; otherwise they wouldn’t look that beautiful.
Sisal derived from Agave Sisalana plant is also used as a natural flooring material. The leaves of the plant are dried and then they are hand woven to form sustainable and durable flooring. This particular flooring can be very good option since the flooring made from sisal leaves is very comforting for the feet.
We use limestone as floors, countertops, pillars as well as other construction applications. Limestone looks attractive, has multiple color options, and it is durable. Limestone can last for a long time if maintained properly. It is prone to scratches if it is struck by hard substance or if anything is dragged across it. Deep scratches need professional assistance but you can cover up small scratches easily.
1. Use warm water and a mild dishwashing soap should be used to wash the area around the scratch.
2. A light steel wool should be used to buff the scratch. Steel wool has different numbers which is related to its coarseness. You should use the lightest kind, which has a number 0000. If you make use of heavier steel wool, it may damage the surface.
3. Use a black permanent marker to color the scratch if your limestone is of dark shade. The scratch is covered up and so becomes not noticeable. Excess coloring around the scratch is to be removed using a cotton ball dipped in denatured alcohol.
