SALEM, NJ (PRWEB) March 13, 2015
Mannington, a leading manufacturer of high-quality flooring, confirms that their laminate flooring meets the highest standards of indoor air quality in the industry. Mannington maintains tight controls on the manufacturing of its laminate flooring; all of the company’s laminate products are 100% made in the United States at the company’s manufacturing facilities in North Carolina.
“We have a longstanding commitment to quality and safety,” said Ed Duncan, President of Residential Business at Mannington. “All of our products have passed third party air quality testing and meet or exceed the highest standards in the flooring industry. The result is that Mannington customers can install our laminate flooring in their homes without worrying about indoor air quality.”
A recent CBS news report broadcast on March 1, 2015, focused on unsafe levels of formaldehyde in Chinese-manufactured laminate flooring has caused some consumers to question the origin and potential unhealthful impact of laminate flooring. While formaldehyde is a naturally occurring organic compound, high levels of the substance can be harmful to humans.
All Mannington laminate products have the FloorScore® IAQ certification, meaning that an independent laboratory has tested the products and they comply with all emissions standards. Mannington laminate flooring also meets the ANSI quality standards set by the North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA), including the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) standard.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to quality and safety, we continue to manufacture to these standards, to ensure the superior performance of our products,” said Duncan. “Consumers should know that they can purchase and install Mannington products with confidence and with an assurance of a safe environment in their homes.
