Creating a Healthy Business (or home)? Surprise, Carpeting is Your Best Choice for Flooring!
Carpet has been unfairly blamed as a contributor to asthma, allergies, and for emitting high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Truth be told, CARPET IS OUR ALLY. It not only offers the lowest cost per square foot, it is the healthiest choice!

Like a filter, carpet will "trap" and damper the ambient air particles (dander, pollen, dust and other contaminants) that can cause problems. For instance, you know those dark lines at the edge of your room, under doors or the edge of steps? Those are called  FILTRATION LINES . They get that name because of how they develop. All the dirt, soot, pollen, and pollutants sift through every crack of the house and are "caught" by the carpet fibers.

Take the carpet out and all this dirt, soot, pollen, pollutants, etc. will be left circulating in the air for you to breathe. Without carpeting, it will finally blow onto your upholstery, rugs, drapes, or even clothes. Doctors tell us that dirt and dust are the primary causes of most allergies. Over time, the contaminants will build up - and you can imagine what all that will do to your health as you breath those nasty microorganisms in on a daily basis. Cleaning and/or replacing all those items are not cheap. Do yourself a favor and LEAVE YOUR CARPET, HOWEVER, MAINTAIN IT PROPERLY!

For most of us, carpet is a perfect floor covering. However, hard floors have become increasingly popular and many times necessary in the business setting. Stone (Marble, Granite, etc.) and wood are nice, but maintenance can be expensive. As an alternative
you should consider concrete. Concrete has gone far beyond the boring grey of warehouses.

The staining and coloring techniques are quite impressive. Installation cost is lower, as well as maintenance. You will also find this type of flooring surpasses the ever present vinyl composite tile or VCT, in every way (including costs), and gives you a much better image and design.

Advanced Cleaning Systems provides excellent methods to clean and maintain your flooring and fabric needs.
Go Green - Plants Increase Happiness and Productivity
Offices devoid of pictures, souvenirs or any other distractions are "the most toxic space" you can put a human into, say psychologists in a  paper published by the American Psychological Association, which says workers perform better when household plants are added to workplaces.

Dr. Chris Knight from Exeter University and his fellow psychologists, who have been studying the issue for 10 years, concluded that employees were 15% more productive when "lean" workplaces are filled with just a few houseplants, as employees who actively engage with their surroundings are better workers.
