Climate change can affect your home 

We give a lot of thought to the kind of floors we put in our homes. The type of flooring we put in our homes can either make or break the entire look of our home. Climate is an important factor to consider while choosing the flooring you want for your home. The area you live in- determines the temperatures you will see in your home which should be a major determinant of your choice of flooring. If you’re about to invest in a new flooring for your home or would just love to gain some insight for the future- this one’s for you. 


Flooring Options

Now with so many flooring options floating in the market- how do we decide which one’s the winner? One should always know how to take care of different types of flooring before choosing the final one. Read our blog on Floor Cleaning Tips for every type of Flooring to get a better insight. Apart from this, you should always look at the flooring options that suit your budget. Now, let’s talk about climate. This is a factor that is almost entirely ignored during our hunt for that perfect flooring. For example, if you pick a flooring that does not go with the hot and humid weather you live in, you might have to spend some big bucks on maintenance in just a couple of years. Here’s all you need to know about the flooring options you have according to the type of weather you live in! Read on below: 


Tile

Tiles  are the most durable flooring material you can find. It’s long-lasting, incredibly durable, and easily cleans up to look shiny and new again. They come in different variants as well- porcelain, ceramic, or stone. Tiles are generally very cool and they work great if you live in a hot and humid climate. Being, water resistant- it is the flooring that suits regions with high humidity levels! However, the cool surface of tiles might not work for you if you live in colder regions. This is because tiles can become extremely cold to walk on.

Luxury Vinyl

Luxury Vinyl are the talk of the town at the moment! If you love the durability of a tile yet the look of hardwood floorings- luxury vinyl might be the one for you. Vinyl flooring is excellent for cold areas because it’s not vulnerable to expanding or contracting in extreme temperatures. However, these type of flooring require extensive care and make sure that you do not use any abrasive chemical floor cleaner on them- this might harm the flooring and could lead to probable damage in future. Luxury Vinyl can also be available in different textures and it’s really easy to clean as well with an excellent Natural Floor Cleaner!


Wooden Flooring

Hardwood floors are an all-time classic. They are versatile, bringing either a rusty or modern touch to your home. With that said- they are pretty tricky to work around in extreme climate regions.  Your hardwood reacts to climate change in a reliable pattern, shifting with the seasons and the relative humidity levels. If it’s too dry, they could crack. But if it’s too humid, they could swell up and buckle. If you’re stuck on installing a wooden flooring, maybe investing in a humidifier is the best way to go. Try to monitor the room’s relative humidity so your hardwood doesn’t get too hot or dry. You should also close the curtains to prevent the strong sunlight from discoloring your panels on very sunny days.

Is it time to call a professional? 

Your flooring is something you are in contact with every single day. It’s bound to have some imperfections over time. Here are some tell tale signs that you need to call in a professional to check and possible repolish your flooring: 
-Visible Chips and Cracks
-Splintering wooden floors
-Disfigured stone stabs
-Discoloration in wood and marble

Carpet Flooring

Carpet Flooring is a great option if you have an ideal pinterest board of your future home that thrives on minimalism. Carpet flooring is a good option only in regions that are not near the coast or very warm areas. They work best in colder regions as they carry the warmth within the surface. The warm fibers help to insulate your home. If you live in damp regions- you can see mold or mildew gathering on the corners of your carpet. Floor cleaners might not be a carpet’s best friend. However, use Koparo’s All-Purpose Cleaner to get rid of any remaining dust and smells that have settled on your carpet. You can also use our Fabric Stain Remover to get rid of any harsh stains. 


Marble Flooring

Marble floors are very beautiful, especially when they are squeaky clean. This is because the marble flooring is reflective in nature. They work excellent in dry regions and neutral climates. Marble flooring can be tricky to work with. They become quite cold in winters. Marble flooring is prone to scratches and smells so make sure to use a fragrant  Floor cleaner that is completely natural, especially if you have got pets in your home!
