Healthy Flooring for Asthma and Allergy Suffers

SCS Indoor Air Quality Gold LogoDid you know that one in five people in the US suffer from allergies or asthma? Nasal allergies alone affect about 50 million adults and children in the United States, and those numbers rise every year.

Not to be outdone, asthma is the fifth leading chronic disease in the US in people of all ages. In addition, a study conducted by the California Environmental Protection Agency identified a link between formaldehyde and an increase in asthma-like respiratory symptoms.

The good news is that hardwood flooring in general is much easier to keep free of dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens. LIFECORE® takes that benefit a step further with zero added formaldehyde. Considering the average person spends 85% of their time indoors, the presence of LIFECORE® flooring proves that “nothing” can mean everything.

We’re proud that our floors provide the foundation to a healthier home, and have been certified not only by FloorScore, the most recognized certification in the industry, but also Indoor Advantage Gold, the most stringent certification for indoor air quality.
