Laminate Flooring in Harrisburg, NC from Custom Floor Solutions

Are All Laminate Floors Toxic?

In recent years, there has been a growing concern among homeowners about the potential toxicity of laminate flooring. Various reports and rumors have circulated, leading many to question whether laminate floors pose health risks due to the materials used in their construction.

Understanding Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring consists of multiple layers, typically including a backing layer, a core layer, a design layer, and a protective wear layer. These layers are fused together through a lamination process, resulting in a durable and versatile flooring option that mimics the look of hardwood, tile, or stone.

Addressing Concerns

One of the primary concerns regarding laminate flooring is the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from certain materials used in its production. While it's true that some laminate flooring products may contain low levels of VOCs, not all laminates are created equal.
