Baby-Proof Your Home With Wooden Floors

Posted in Wood Flooring by Source on February 28th 2014
Having a baby is an exciting experience for parents, but it can be a daunting one as well. There are numerous hazards around the home that have to be thought about to keep a child safe. One simple change can go a long way to setting your mind at ease, however, is installing wooden floors in your home. Below are just a few advantages to having wooden flooring when you are expecting a new arrival.

Why Wooden Floors Are Ideal For Expecting Parents

During its first few years, your baby will be spending much of its time on the floor, so keeping your flooring safe and well maintained is vital. Wooden flooring offers numerous benefits to expecting parents:
  • A More Hygienic Option- Carpets have a tendency to trap dirt and dust into the fibres, which can make them dangerous if your baby is in contact with them for extended periods of time. Breathing in this dust can be harmful to your baby’s respiratory system, and could exacerbate illnesses whilst its immune system is developing. By switching to wooden floors, you don’t have to worry about lingering dust that your baby could inhale, and dirt will be much easier to clean.
  • Hazards Are More Visible- Small objects lying around on the floor can present a choking hazard for your child. Keeping an eye on these objects and removing them from your child’s reach can be difficult when small items such as coins become trapped in carpet and escape your notice. With wooden floors, however, small hazards are much easier to locate and remove.
  • Easier To Clean- Children and carpet’s don’t always mix, especially when things get messy and they spill drinks, drop food and trail mud through your home. Removing stains from carpets can be difficult and time consuming. This is not the case with wooden floors, however, which can be cleaned easily with a quick wipe using a damp cloth.
