Safety Overview

Let us help you find the perfect store for your flooring needs!

Product safety

Most people spend up to 90% of their time indoors. Indoor air can be 10 times more polluted than outdoor due to high concentrate level of volatile organic compound (VOCs), per Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI).

Indoor Air Quality Standards

FloorScore® was developed by RFCI together with Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), an independent lab, to test and certify flooring products for compliance with indoor air quality emission requirements, particularly the levels of specific VOCs.

In 2010, California Air Resource Board (CARB) rolled out the most stringent regulation regarding formaldehyde emission for hardwood and related product. This regulation is known as CARB Phase II, which dictated that formaldehyde emission be lower than 0.05ppm —- a very safe level.

Consumers Beware!

VOCs, especially formaldehyde, are known carcinogens; and can cause headaches, burning eyes, wheezing and difficulty breathing. Many flooring brands make the claim of low VOC emission, but unless the product bear the FloorScore® and/or CARB Phase II compliance labels on its packaging, and that the manufacturer can provide documentations to support its claim, you shouldn’t assume the product has met any of these indoor air quality standards.

Twelve Oaks® brand of products have all been FloorScore® certified, and our engineered product are also CARB Phase II compliant and EPA 40 C.F.R. 770 compliant.

Give contractors/builder the competitive edge
