It is important for us, as parents, to have a flooring suitable for our kids. They are, after all, our precious little ones. Having a flooring that is suitable for the kids can help us save not only money in the long run, but also save a lot of hassles.
Babies seem to be so fragile. Everything about them are so breakable and they are developing. Their lungs, their brain, their kidney, their everything. The last thing we would want to have in our mind, as a parent, is to have moldy floorings for our babies to crawl on, or have their fragile body landed on any dusty flooring. Having an eco-friendly flooring not only encourage the growth of a green kid in the future, but also reduces the different emission of chemicals, dust and mites, hence reducing the growth of molds on the floor. We can then safely allow our baby to crawl anywhere and everywhere on the floor.
Keeping the floor clean, will be another issue. Having a baby or toddler has already taken up a lot of our attention and energy. We definitely would not want to think how to clean certain mess up, especially it is inevitable for them to have spillage in their growing years. The spillage can go from milk to ribena to syrup drinks to anything one can think of. As we know, some flooring requires almost immediate cleaning before staining occurs. An easy to maintain flooring would be the best ultimate choice when we have a baby or toddler around. We do not need to waste our time waxing and polishing the floor to make it shine. We can then spend more time with our precious little one and enjoy their growth.
When toddlers started their walking journey out from their baby crib, it is inevitable that they will slip and fall. It could be due to their toys on the floor, or due to the fact that balancing is something relatively new to them. Our main concern, as a parent, will focus mainly on their safety. Every fall they made, especially on hard flooring, will make us go “OUCH!”. It hurts us to see them fall, yet it is part and parcel of life. Therefore, to have a flooring that is able to cushion their fall will make the place a little safer for them to set foot on their walking journey.
It helps too when the flooring is slip resistant. Slip resistant flooring is important to all, regardless of age. It definitely provide us the comfort of knowing everyone is safe walking around. No puddle of water can keep any children or anyone for that matter to stop walking when there is a slip resistant flooring!
After so much on the reasons why a good flooring is important when you have a toddler, what will we recommend as the recommended flooring for households with children of any age? Needless to say, it will be the eco-resilient flooring (ERF)! Besides being a child friendly flooring that we recommend, eco-resilient flooring has many different colors and design to choose from, matching them to the color or theme of your house.
