FSC-certified manufacturing facility does not mean certified flooring or healthy indoor-air quality
If DuChateau Floors were the only company offering a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified hardwood floor with an oil finish that emits no chemicals, we would not be living in the United States of America.
In the land where competition abounds, customers who want the “greenest” product – one that is best for human health and also benefits the planet -- are a priority for a number of manufacturers. But so are those who do not have the budget for an FSC-certified product with a finish proven to have low-chemical emissions.
The end result is a selection of products that range from the “greenest,” to the not so “green,” and it is often up to you to know how to tell the difference.
