Formaldehyde-Free Flooring

Bamboo flooring without formaldehyde is impossible to achieve, but Ambient bamboo floors come very close to just that. They’re so close that, with “effectively zero” formaldehyde emissions, they fully meet the NAUF standards. The reason it is so difficult to achieve 100% formaldehyde-free flooring, or formaldehyde-free products in general, is that formaldehyde is a naturally-occurring organic compound that’s found in everything.
