Is Your Rug Making You Sick?
Some floor coverings trap allergens and give off harmful fumes. Make sure yours are healthy with this quick guide to rugs and carpet.
Go for the Green Label
Wall-to-wall broadloom carpet is typically made with synthetic fibers, backings, and adhesives that release VOCs.
So when you're getting carpet for an entire room, it's important to look for natural fibers, like wool, or synthetic products that have earned the Green Label or Green Label Plus from the Carpet and Rug Institute (ensuring that floor coverings have low-VOC emissions).
