On March 1st, 60 Minutes reported dangerous formaldehyde levels in laminate flooring produced in China and sold to thousands of American households by a large flooring company based in the United States. This report has sparked an industry-wide outcry for testing and verification of legal and non-dangerous formaldehyde levels in products produced and sold by other flooring retailers and distributors.

Pilot Flooring, a Dallas-based flooring retailer, has publicly declared that the flooring they purchase from established distributors meets or exceeds all emissions regulations. Pilot Flooring does not directly manufacture or commission the manufacturing of products it retails. The company only purchases directly from local distributors and has verified those distributors have representatives who physically monitor the lumber mills where the product is manufactured, whether foreign or domestic, to ensure product quality and emissions standards.

The distributors that Pilot Flooring purchase flooring products from have provided the company with copies of the certificates, issued by third-party inspectors, related to CARB Composite Wood ATCM, California Code of Regulations, Sections 93120-93120.12, Title 17. These certificates verify the laminate flooring in question is certified calCOMPliant(TM) Phase 2.

Pilot Flooring purchases flooring, including high-quality laminate flooring, from multiple distributors who in turn provide products from various manufacturers. Distributors include Adleta Corporation, BPI, T&L, Trinity Hardwoods Distributors Inc., and Southwest Wholesale Flooring. Manufacturers include Shaw Industries Group, Inc., Anderson Hardwood Floors, Mannington Mills, Inc., Bruce (Armstrong World Industries, Inc.), Columbia Flooring, Bella Cera Hardwood Floors , Mullican Flooring, LP., Texas Traditions Flooring, and Ayos Laminate. These companies, including their subsidiaries, and others Pilot Flooring may purchase from now or in the future, provide safe, high-quality products and maintain excellent business practices.

The team at Pilot Flooring maintains a high standard of product quality and business practices, holding their distributors and vendors to those standards as well. The company does not condone cutting corners in health and safety for improved profits, and will never purposefully deceive its customers. They encourage individuals affected by the recent formaldehyde reports to have their flooring tested by an independent, certified laboratory and, if necessary, replaced.
