We care about the air you and your family breath, that's why our floors are formaldehyde-free and will not release any toxic. Formaldehyde was declared a toxic substance by the 1999 Canadian Environmental Protection Act. A 2009 review of studies has shown a strong association between exposure to formaldehyde and the development of childhood asthma.
In the residential environment, formaldehyde exposure comes from a number of routes; formaldehyde can emitted by treated wood products, such as plywood or particle board, but it is produced by paints, varnishes, floor finishes, and cigarette smoking as well. In July 2016, the U.S. EPA released a prepublication version of its final rule on Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products. These new rules impact manufacturers, importers, distributors, and retailers of products containing composite wood, including fiberboard, particleboard, and various laminated products, who must comply with more stringent record-keeping and labeling requirements.
