What is the healthiest flooring for my family?

Asked by Holcombe

All floors in some way or form are going to emit vocs. If its not the product , it is the adhesive. We are on a budget and need to put flooring in our 2500 sq ft home. I am leaning towards porcelain tile over Coretec plus vinyl product.

An affordable green flooring is natural linoleum. Not all linoleum floors are equal and linoleum does have drawbacks described elsewhere on the Green Home Guide. Vinyl is a synthetic man-made material. Check also what is in your under layment and, as you mentioned, adhesives.
