A great option of Eco-friendly carpeting now on the market is recycled carpet tiles. Recycled carpet tiles are made from ground up used vinyl and nylon carpeting. Some brands of recycled carpet tile are made of 100% recycled materials including both the fibers and the backing.
The reasons/ benefits for producing recycled carpet tiles stretch beyond just the environmental ones. Let’s take a look at the reasons why you might want to consider recycled carpet tiles if you are looking to purchase carpet tiles for your home.
First let’s start with the most obvious of reasons for choosing recycled carpet tiles. Since the carpet tiles are made up of discarded used carpets there is less waste to put in the landfill. Then there is also the preservation of using new resources to produce brand new carpet. Carpet tiles also allow for less waste during the installation process and when recycled carpet tiles have served their lifespan they can be ground up and re-used again.
Indoor Air Quality
Traditional carpets made of all new materials are produced using petroleum-based chemicals that give off harmful odors that can cause some serious health issues when inhaled in the home. Recycled carpet does not use these same chemicals.
Recycled carpet tiles are highly durable. They can withstand heavy traffic and are very easy to clean. Should a carpet tile become stained just remove the one tile and clean it in the sink. Yep! It’s that easy. If a carpet tile is worn just replace it instead of replacing the whole floor saving you money.
With carpet tiles you are the designer. You can get as creative as you want. You don’t have to stick to just one color or pattern here. Mix and match your tiles to create something one of a kind not found in anyone else’s home. You can even create area rugs from carpet tiles. Carpet tiles are available in an almost innumerable amount of sizes, colors, textures, and more new options are coming out at a fast pace because of their popularity.
Recycled carpet tiles are a great budget friendly, family friendly, environment friendly option for your home. As long as they are properly cared for with regular vacuuming, immediate stain treatment, and yearly deep cleanings they will last you a very long time.
