So, what is a wear layer? The wear layer helps your floor last longer. The wear layer is a clear PVC film that is applied to the photographic layer of your floor. For example, if you rolled around your floor on a desk chair, the wear layer is what is protecting your floor from wearing down to the color. The wear layer adds an extra boost of durability and extends the life of your vinyl flooring. As you may have guessed the thicker the wear layer the tougher the flooring will be.
When you buy Earthwerks products, you know you are being “green-conscious” because all of our luxury vinyl tiles and planks are recyclable. Earthwerks is your assurance that all of our products include many of the following attributes:
Most chemical exposure in people occurs through the air we breathe in our homes, offices, schools, and other indoor environments. These chemicals are used to manufacture and maintain building materials, as well as, interior furnishing, cleaning products, and personal care products. Studies show that many of us spend as much as 90% of our time indoors. If you are breathing poor quality air, you could be facing a higher risk level for a variety of health problems. Studies by the EPA have found that VOCs are common in indoor environments. The levels may be up to thousand times higher than outdoors. Some may produce objectionable odors at low levels. But others may have no noticeable smell. VOCs can cause several irritants like headaches, throat irritation, and dizziness. Long-term exposure may lead to more serious illnesses.
Floor Score Certified is the most recognized indoor air quality certification standard for hard surface flooring materials, adhesives, and underlayment. A third party conducts tests and measures the risk of airborne chemicals that are referred to as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Products bearing the Floor Score Certification have met a stringent indoor air quality emissions criterion. So, what does that mean to you? It means that your family can breathe easier. Therefore, you should keep Floor Score Certification in mind when shopping for floors.
