Green Carpet Installation

If you have chosen to buy green (eco-friendly) carpet for your home or business, I would assume that protecting our planet and living green is important to you. Don't just stop at buying green carpet when you can also install carpet "greenly". Using green carpet installation methods will help to protect not only our planet, but you and your family's health.

Many non-green carpets contain high levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)Many non-green carpet types contain high levels of VOC's(Volatile Organic Compounds). High levels of VOCs in a home or business can cause a number of health issues including respiratory problems and skin irritations. To protect your family and even your pets from high levels of VOCs released during installation of carpet, you may choose to leave the area and also to open windows and turn on fans to air out your home. To take it a step further, you can often have your installer air out your carpet in a well-ventilated area before bringing it into your home.

In addition, carpet is usually installed using carpet adhesives or glue which can often contain unhealthy levels of VOC's. Luckily, the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) created the Green Label program which helps flooring professionals and consumers to identify carpet and carpet products with safe levels of VOC's. Another way to identify low VOC flooring adhesives is to look for one that meets or exceeds European E-1 standards. You can take eco-friendly carpet installation one step further and eliminate the glue all together. For more information on how to install carpet using a glue free method, visit FindAnyFloor's carpet installation guide.
