Final Ruling Set to Protect Consumers Against Adverse Effects of Flooring Products

Some homeowners and business owners may be wondering if the composite flooring in their homes or businesses contain dangerous levels of formaldehyde. After reports that Lumber Liquidators sold Chinese-made wood products containing unsafe levels of formaldehyde began to surface in 2015, questions are being raised about other flooring products, including those distributed by inhaus Surfaces. Based in Canada, inhaus Surfaces claims that all of their products are made with low formaldehyde emissions and are in compliance with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards.

In response to the growing concern that some laminate wood flooring may contain harmful amounts of formaldehyde, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a final ruling regarding formaldehyde emissions from certain wood products. 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. While the EPA begins 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.
