By reusing the wood, Mohawk keeps this potential waste from going into landfills, further illustrating our dedication to the environment. Many of the reclaimed hardwood floor planks carry some of the original antiquing and distressing, revealing the wood’s unique past, while providing original style and fashion for the home.
