Understanding VOC in Vinyl Flooring

VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds. These are chemicals that can evaporate into the air at room temperature, potentially posing health risks to humans and the environment. VOCs are commonly found in various household products, including paints, adhesives, and yes, even flooring materials.

Why VOC Matters in Vinyl Flooring

When it comes to vinyl flooring, VOC emissions can be a concern, especially during and after installation. Vinyl flooring typically contains various chemicals, such as phthalates and formaldehyde, which can release VOCs into the air over time. Prolonged exposure to high levels of VOCs can lead to respiratory issues, headaches, and other health problems.

How to Choose Low-VOC Vinyl Flooring
