Flooring and Indoor Air Quality

Flooring and Indoor Air Quality - A Challenge to Common Misperceptions

Indoor air quality (IAQ) has impacted the built environment since the days of dirt floors and mud huts. But IAQ is not just a millennia’s old issue. Modern research indicates that IAQ can impact academic performance in schools, productivity in office environments and health outcomes among patients and staff in hospitals.

While controlling pollutants from raw materials and manufacturing processes is key to healthy indoor air, flooring – one of the most abundant finishes in the built environment – offers an important opportunity to positively impact IAQ.

Flooring and Indoor Air Quality – A Challenge to Common Misperceptions will review the key factors to consider when specifying flooring and how different flooring systems relate to indoor air quality concerns such as asthma and allergies and VOCs.
