Flooring and Carpeting

The type of flooring found in your home can impact the quality of the air indoors. This also includes the types of glues and sealing materials used to install flooring which can release chemical odours. When you have a choice for flooring, look for low-emitting materials and adhesives that are water-based.

Carpeting can hold onto bacteria, dust, dust mites, pet dander and mould. If possible, remove as much carpeting as you can. If you install carpeting, look for a low emission product to limit the amount of chemical odours released, and make sure it is cleaned properly and regularly.
