How This New Trend In Retail Flooring And Installations Could Affect You
While picking flooring for your home, you don’t want something that chips away or wears out quickly. At the same time, you don’t want your flooring to contaminate the air you breathe in your home. Considering we spend most of our time indoors, you definitely don’t want flooring material that deteriorates your health.
To satisfy the health conscious consumers of today and improve the quality of flooring retailers supply, FloorScore, a voluntary, independent certification program has been introduced. The FloorScore program measures the emission levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced by flooring products. It tests and certifies hard surface flooring and materials like adhesives and underlayments. These materials need to comply with stringent indoor air quality emissions to be certified.
The FloorScore certification test was developed by Scientific Certification Systems, Inc. (SCS), along with the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI). SCS is the leader in third-party environmental, sustainability, and food quality auditing, testing, certification, and standards development. RFCI is a leading industry trade association of flooring manufacturers and suppliers. It also qualifies for many green building schemes.
Today, the market is flooded with flooring products manufactured in China. However, very few of these Chinese products are safe for indoor usage. FloorScore certification is helpful for those customers concerned about VOC emissions and off-gassing in their homes. The only downside of this industry trend is that these Chinese products usually have a lower price point, the quality products would comparatively cost more.
In case you do find FloorScore certified materials beyond your budget, let your flooring expert know. They could show you certified flooring that is less expensive. However, remember to purchase what you are comfortable with but also remember we spend a lot of time inside our homes and the quality of the air we breathe is vital to our health.
