When searching for the right flooring for your needs, you don’t want to base your flooring purchase on flooring myths.
When you’re shopping for flooring, you don’t want synthetic carpet, toxic glues and formaldehyde carpet pad apart of the equation.

2. Myth: Synthetic carpet off-gases for 72 hours and then it’s safe. Truth: Synthetic carpet and its underpad has hundred of chemicals in it including styrenebutedyne, stain-repellent, and pure formaldahyde.
