Third Party Certifications- FloorScore
Resilient vinyl flooring is one of the fastest growing flooring categories right now. This is a popular choice because it is a versatile, cost effective product that can literally go into any room in any home. In addition, it is easy to clean and maintain and is available in a variety of sizes and finishes. Most importantly for your home, Shaw Resilient vinyl flooring products promote healthy indoor air quality and are backed by FloorScore®.

FloorScore® is a third party certification that tests and measures the risks to indoor air quality. A primary concern of indoor air quality is the emission level of specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Poor indoor air quality is caused by inadequate ventilation, poor cleaning and/or excessive emissions of VOCs from surfaces and finishes. Products bearing the FloorScore® label meet the stringent indoor air quality emissions criteria. 

So what does this mean to you? It means that our resilient vinyl flooring allows you and your family to breathe easier. Studies show that many of us spend as much as 90% of our time indoors- at home, work or school. If you’re breathing poor quality air, you could be facing a higher risk level for a variety of health problems, including headaches, dizziness, and more serious long-term conditions. So when shopping for resilient vinyl flooring, look for the FloorScore® seal and you’ll know you are making a good choice for your home and your family.
