Great to see the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program highlighted in The Washington Post. The author, Laura Daily, was tasked with finding out what is the best flooring for people impacted by allergies and how consumers can really know what’s in the materials being used. The article reads as follows;
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) operates the “asthma & allergy friendly” certification program in collaboration with Allergy Standards Limited, an international scientific body. The program tests wood, not carpet, and it takes into account materials and chemicals used in manufacturing. Tests measure VOCs emitted at 24 and 48 hours, then after 14 days to make sure they remain low. If the flooring is installed with adhesive, that is also included in the test. Go to aafa.org and click on the Certified Products tab to find certified flooring options.
