Concerns such as residential toxins should be a major consideration, especially when choosing materials for a child's room.
Over the years, both painted surfaces and the adhesive layers between the wooden slats can emit countless worrisome additives that are released into the surrounding environment.
Therefore, it is not only essential to choose naturally oiled surfaces for the floor, but also to carefully consider the adhesive material that holds the multi-layer boards together.
100% naturalness without compromise. mafi natural wood floors do not contain any unnatural or chemical substances.
Each mafi floor consists of only three components:
1. wood from sustainable forestry
2. natural linseed-based oil for finishing the wear layer.
3. white glue consisting of organic substances, such as lime and vinegar.
The result: a 100% natural and healthy natural wood floor.
And this has been the case for over 40 years - because that is how long mafi has been considered a pioneer in the manufacture of eco-friendly and natural parquet.
mafi floors in three words: Healthy. Stable. Genuine.
Particularly for babies or small children, but also for people with severe asthma, the naturalness factor plays an important role in the interior. This is because they are particularly sensitive and susceptible to pathogenic vapors from living materials such as floor coverings, carpet adhesives, varnish or paint coatings, cleaning agents, etc.
mafi is the only wood flooring manufacturer in the world to meet the extremely strict guidelines of the Living Product Challenge - one of the world's most rigorous certification programs ever. For this certification, criteria such as living health, 100% naturalness, as well as the sustainability of the entire production chain are closely scrutinized.
The independent National Asthma Council in Australia has also recognized the health-promoting added value of mafi natural wood flooring and awarded it the "Sensitive Choice" certificate, thus endorsing mafi flooring even for asthma sufferers.
The surface of mafi parquet is not only impressive in terms of its natural, elegant appearance, but also demonstrably improves one's quality of life.
The finishing of wooden boards with linseed-based oil conditions the wood deep into every fiber and makes them resistant to stains and any damage - therefore, the perfect basis for a rowdy play area.
However, oiling not only leaves a beautiful appearance without leaving an unpleasant oil film, but above all leaves the wood open-pored. And it is precisely this open porosity that contributes to many positive effects on the living environment:
1. People benefit from a surface that is always warm to the body, which feels good, especially when playing and crawling around on the floor.
2. The open-pored wood results in indoor air quality that is healthy for the home, because the wood continues to be able to absorb the moisture in the room and release it back into the room.
3. Any stains and scratches can be removed selectively and very easily, without having to treat the entire surface, as is the case with varnished floors.
4. Open-pore wood is ingenious: it is antibacterial and can neutralize bad odors.
In short, by preserving the naturally open-pored nature of the wood, it can continue to breathe and make our living environment noticeably more pleasant and, above all, healthier to live in, with all its positive properties.
As healthy as the maf natural wood floor is, its care is also child's play.
Care and cleaning with one wipe: Regular wiping with mafi soap cleans and cares for the floor at the same time. The high-quality mafi wood soap has an antibacterial effect and the fats it contains provide the wood with nourishing oils.
The wood board is also fond of water, because it soaks into the wood and provides it with moisture; all excess water that the board does not need, it releases into the environment of the room. Using mafi wood floor soap has an antibacterial effect and the moisture that is absorbed into the wood significantly improves the indoor climate.
