Health & Wellbeing

Indoor air is 2 to 5 times more polluted that outside air* due to chemicals used in buildings and furniture, which we then seal in. Poor air quality can lead to symptoms such as lack of concentration, tiredness, and sleep disturbance, sore muscles, breathing trouble, dizziness, enhanced allergies and asthma. With around 90 percent of our time spent indoors*, Mafi have acknowledged this as an opportunity to use our expertise, and the natural abilities of wood to improve indoor air quality and ultimately your health and wellbeing.

Nature is widely recognized for having a positive and restorative effect on health and wellbeing. In its natural state wood has the ability to purify the air. From a 100% all-natural timber board and development of the Mafi Vulcano heat treatment, to the all-natural oil finish and care and maintenance of a Mafi floor, Mafi products are entirely chemical free.

Mafi is a proud partner of the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice® program.
