Choosing vinyl floor adhesive

What Exactly Do You Know About the Indoor Air Quality You Breathe?

Vinyl floors are affordable, easy to install and maintain, and they look simply great – therefore, their popularity is rising all over the world. Although, in order to be living in a safe environment, you not only have to choose the highest quality floors, made from safe materials, but also make sure that the vinyl adhesives used in the floor installation process are non hazardous and environmentally friendly.

Indoor Air Quality

Have you ever wondered, how everyday construction products can affect the indoor air quality you breathe? The majority of adhesives, solvents and paints, used in the construction process, contain VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), which are emitted throughout their lifetime. Even if you had your floors installed 10 years ago, there is a huge chance that harmful toxic substances are still being released to the air on this exact moment. VOCs include toxic chemical substances, also known as benzene, formaldehyde, and others, which can lead to major health concerns, such as allergies and respiratory disorders.

Environmentally Friendly Solution for Vinyl Floor Installation 

Often, when choosing flooring adhesives, the most important criteria is the efficiency of the adhesives. However, especially when installing vinyl floors in the public places, such as schools, preschools or hospitals, it is extremely important to consider safety factor as well. High performance can be ensured with products with low VOC levels, so there is simply no need to put your health in danger. 

By incorporating environmentally friendly adhesives into the floor installation process, you can save thousands of people (including yourself) from major health disorders and allergies, that are often caused by hazardous products, with high levels of VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). Environmentally friendly products, containing low VOC levels, must have a certification assurance sign on the packaging – always have it in mind, when selecting adhesives for vinyl floor installation.
