This collection is also Green Guard Certified. In other words, it is a third-party certification that tests and measures the risk of indoor air quality. A primary concern of indoor air quality is the emission level of specific volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Poor indoor air quality is caused by inadequate ventilation, poor cleaning, and excessive emissions of VOCs from surfaces and finishes. Products bearing the floor score label meet the stringent indoor air quality emissions criteria.
So, what does this mean to you? It means that your family can breathe easier. Studies show that many of us spend as much as 90% of our time indoors, at home, at work, or at school. If you’re breathing poor quality air, you could be facing a higher risk level for a variety of health problems. Therefore, you should keep Floor Score Certified in mind when shopping for floors.
