USFloors’ GreenGuard certification grows

HomeNewsUSFloors’ GreenGuard certification grows

DALTON—USFloors has achieved GreenGuard’s Children & Schools certification for its line of Natural Cork floating floors with the Endura ART finish as well as its entry level Ecocork floating floors. Earlier this year, the mill achieved the Children & Schools certification for its Natural Bamboo flooring line, the only bamboo flooring line to achieve this stringent certification standard for indoor air quality.

With the addition of Natural Cork floating floors, USFloors is the only flooring supplier to have both cork and bamboo flooring lines with GreenGuard Children & Schools certification in it’s portfolio.

USFloors COO, Philippe Erramuzpe noted, “Having our core products of cork and bamboo flooring be certified to GreenGuard’s Children & Schools standard exemplifies our ongoing commitment to providing the most environmentally responsible flooring products to our customers and consumers.”

The GreenGuard Children & Schools program is one of the most stringent and rigorous indoor air quality certification programs in the world, he noted. Products certified to this standard have been screened for more than 10,000 different volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and undergo periodic verification processes to remain certified. The GreenGuard Environmental Institute, an independent, third- party organization dedicated to improving indoor air, oversees the certification program and develops the standards that guide it.
