For most of us, the words “healthy” and “happy” are probably at the top of the list in describing how we’d like our lives to be. The environment in which we live is a major contributing factor to whether or not we achieve this.

All of us know that the floor is a pretty dirty place to begin with and if we, or especially our children, are going to sit or play on it, we need to keep it as clean as possible. Many choose carpet as a nice place to sit or lay down to play or watch television.


But what many do not realize is that even with regular vacuuming and shampooing, carpets are full of millions of tiny particles and parasites that we are unaware of. Dust mites, bed bugs, ticks, fleas and other pests love to bury themselves in carpets.


Not only that, carpets serve as a major trap for the 36 millions skin flakes that each of us loses each day. For a family of four — well, you do the math! And that is not to mention the oils, toe-jams and other soils we have on our feet, juice and food spills that we try to blot clean, and damp feet out of the shower making sure it’s all well ground in.


Millions of people suffer from allergies and asthma, and dirty carpets are a major cause. President of Kahala Pacific Floors Shirley Hilton has helped thousands of Hawaii families to follow the worldwide trend of giving up carpeting for wood, vinyl, laminate and tile.

“So many people come in and express absolute disdain for their carpets.

They want a surface that they can wipe totally clean and enjoy over and over again,” said Hilton.



So that’s the healthy part, but what about the happy? Hilton said there is a hard surface available in almost any color and look desired.

“Our floors come in black and white and every possible color in between. However, most popular is their own Kahala Floors line of wood flooring. Offering much more stability than solids, the Kahala line is designed with a thick top layer for future sandings and a durable polyurethane coating for beautiful cleanups.

“Most importantly, however, the rich look of wood flooring has made thousands of Hawaii homeowners smile as they walk through the door to the end of the day,” explained Hilton.
