Over the years, EPA studies have shown that indoor pollutant levels can be two to five times higher than they are outside. The floor is the source of many of these problems. The installation of a new carpet and flooring can fill the air with hundreds of volatile organic compounds that may take years to actually dissipate. Carpets are also often treated with toxic chemicals for moth-proofing or to reduce soil and moisture. And not for nothing, but a carpet can also trap chemicals that come in from the outside.
So it is important to go green with your floor. Because these floors do a great job at combatting important problems. There are simple ways to minimize the environmental and health costs that may come with carpeting. Perhaps the biggest way to do this is to find the right carpet and getting it installed properly. The installation of a carpet comes with health hazards due to the chemical-based glues that are used. To combat this, the carpet can be tacked down, which eliminates the use of any glue. You can find water-based, low volatile organic compound glues if using glue is absolutely necessary.
