Did you know that some flooring materials are known to contain and emit chemicals harmful to human health?

Now, more than ever, we want our clients to be aware of what type of flooring they are using in their projects, or installing in their own homes. By spreading this type of awareness, we can all work together in order to create safer and healthier environments.

When you think of flooring, we typically consider if it is durable, visually appealing, easy to install, easy to clean, and if it will fit the budget. However, most people do not think about whether or not their flooring solution has any added health benefits.

For instance, antibacterial flooring helps maintain a cleaner and healthier environment thanks to its revolutionary design. As a result, people can avoid allergy attacks, infections, or other respiratory problems that are usually circulated through the air.

With that in mind, we are excited to remind our clients that Fitnice vinyl flooring has been tested to ensure bacterial growth inhibition and antifungal activity. In fact, their revolutionary design prevents dirt particles from entering the pores of the fabric, which prevents the of growth of fungi and bacteria. In addition, Fitnice vinyl flooring is FloorScore Certified. This means that it has reached the standard that measures indoor air quality.

Furthermore, Fitnice woven vinyl flooring has been granted The WELL (WELL Building Standard) certification. This certificate is the first of its kind to focus on human health and well-being, recognizing the relationship between buildings and their occupants. It focuses on the design and construction of buildings with an approach based on the health, well-being and productivity of its occupants.

In short, Fitnice woven vinyl flooring can create a healthier environment due to its anti-fungal activity, which is a product free of compounds such as phthalates, formaldehyde, halogens or antimony trioxide.
