Earthen Floors – Eco friendly flooring systems

Earthen floors, also known as cob floors, earth floors, rammed earth floors, or clay floors, are a fantastic eco friendly flooring system.

What are Earthen Floors?

  • An earthen floor consists of a combination of clay, sand and fibre. You can usually use a local soil to provide at least one part of this.
  • The earth floor is poured wet, and finished with oil and wax, which gives a hard and waterproof finish. You can mop an earth floor once it is sealed.

Why are they so beneficial?

  • The earthen floor is environmentally very low impact with littleĀ embodied energy.
  • The finish coat can be pigmented to match your room.
  • Earthen floors can be installed on top of existing flooring systems, or directly onto grade.
  • The earthen floor acts as a thermal battery in your house, keeping your room cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

I am the only certified Claylin installer in the UK. So get in contact if you would like to know more.
