One of the most toxic, volatile finishes used in traditional home building is wood floor polyurethane or varnish. While the finished look may be impressive, it is actually adding harmful toxins to the air you breathe for weeks, and sometimes months after the finishing process.
What Product Do We Use?
Healthy Home Builders uses only, all-natural oil, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) free wood floor finishes. Specifically the Rubio, Monocoat Natural Oil Wood Floor Finishes. They are completely non-toxic oil finishes of extraordinary durability. The finishes are easily maintained, and provide a subtle lustre that reveals and complements, rather than covers, the natural grain and patina of the wood.
Is It Safe?
Monocoat contains 0% VOC and has no effect on indoor air quality. It does not contain any formaldehyde, ammonia or acetone – among the more common contaminants found in most flooring finishes. Think about that while you walk around your home.
Monocoat Natural Oil Finish is the leading plant-based, environmentally responsible, sustainable, nonpolluting, single-coat, durable wood finish. Partnering with Rubio was one of the most responsible decisions we’ve made in our building process for an absolutely fume-free, beautiful finish that impresses.
