Find out the things in your home that could be affecting your family’s health.

Many places in the home can have toxins without you knowing. Become an educated consumer and homeowner by understanding when your home may be putting you and your family’s health at risk.
Laminate wood floors have been found to contain high levels of formaldehyde in the glue used to hold together the particles of wood making up the floorboards. This formaldehyde can turn into gas, which is then breathed in by your family, or absorbed by items nearby. These dangerous wood floors can increase a person’s risk for asthma, as well as lung, eye, and nasal irritation. If your floors have high levels of chemicals, take them out of your house and replace them with natural flooring options such as hardwood or ceramic.
