Laminate Flooring in Lancaster, CA from Metro Floors

Are All Laminate Floors Toxic?

Laminate flooring has gained popularity for its affordability, durability, and ease of installation. It consists of multiple layers, including a wear layer, a decorative layer, an inner core, and a backing layer. These layers are typically composed of materials like melamine resin, fiberboard, and high-density fiberboard (HDF). However, concerns have arisen regarding the presence of potentially harmful chemicals in some laminate flooring products.

Dispelling the Myth

At Metro Floors, we take pride in offering high-quality laminate flooring options that prioritize safety and sustainability. Contrary to popular belief, not all laminate floors are toxic. The toxicity of laminate flooring largely depends on the materials used in its production and adherence to stringent safety standards.

Safety First

When selecting laminate flooring for our showroom, we prioritize products that meet or exceed industry safety standards. This includes ensuring compliance with regulations set forth by organizations such as the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These regulations limit the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formaldehyde, common concerns associated with indoor air quality and potential health hazards.

Certifications and Compliance

At Metro Floors, we exclusively offer laminate flooring products that have undergone rigorous testing and certification processes. Look for certifications such as FloorScore® and GREENGUARD Gold, which signify low emissions of VOCs and other harmful substances. These certifications provide customers with peace of mind, knowing that the laminate flooring they choose meets the highest standards of indoor air quality and safety.

In addition to prioritizing safety, Metro Floors is committed to offering environmentally sustainable flooring options.
