What is the best click wood floor for people with chemical sensitivities? Is there any product with no VOC's vs low VOC's?
The wood would be put onto a concrete floor. So, I would need to know about underlayments, also.
We love wood flooring in our office and our last 2 houses are for people with chemical sensitivities. Our favorite products come from Teragren (Bamboo) and Eco Timber (various woods). Both offer low or no-voc options. We also like to put an insulated pad under-layment down on top of the concrete. This pad does a few things: 1. It provides a layer of 'insulation' to keep the floor a bit warmer. 2. It helps keep dampness that may be in the slab away from the wood or laminate wood floor 3. It cushions the floor a bit to make standing around a bit more pleasant. A good option for this under-layment is a product called 'Solid Sound'. There are many others. Also- if you do take a route where you need to finish, clean or protect your floors on site we highly recommend the Bona line of wood floor treatments. Best of luck! Elizabeth DiSalvo
