Some Laminate Flooring Products May Contain Harmful Amounts of Formaldehyde
As reports of contaminated wood products began to emerge in 2015, flooring company Lumber Liquidators was faced with claims that it had sold Chinese-made laminate flooring containing unsafe amounts of formaldehyde. As a result, some home owners as well as business owners may be wondering if the wood flooring in their own homes and businesses contain products with unsafe levels of formaldehyde. In order to address their commitment to the safety of their consumers, companies in California, such as Pacoima-based Eternity Floors, claim that all of their products comply with the state’s strict emission standards.
In 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) passed the Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products Act, ultimately leading to its final ruling regarding formaldehyde emissions from certain wood products in July 2016. According to the agency’s press release, the EPA worked with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to help ensure that the final rule is consistent with requirements already outlined in the state of California. As the EPA works to set product testing requirements to ensure that companies comply with those standards, some flooring products manufactured in China may allegedly contain harmful levels of formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde is a naturally-occurring compound primarily used for industrial production purposes, such as resins used for particle board and various coatings. In the flooring industry, formaldehyde is used as an adhesive to bind wood chips or fibers into plywood and other pressed wood products. A known carcinogen, formaldehyde can cause eye, nose, and throat irritation; serious respiratory complications; and may lead to cancer.
