Laminate Flooring in Punta Gorda, FL from Havens Hessler Floor Covering

Are All Laminate Floors Toxic?

Laminate flooring has gained immense popularity over the years due to its affordability, durability, and aesthetic appeal. However, there have been concerns raised about the potential toxicity of laminate flooring, primarily stemming from the presence of certain chemicals such as formaldehyde in the adhesives used during manufacturing.

Understanding Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in various household products, including certain types of flooring. It is commonly used in the adhesives and resins that hold laminate flooring layers together. While formaldehyde emissions from laminate flooring can indeed pose health risks, not all laminate floors are created equal in this regard.
