The US Environmental Protection Agency, the American Lung Association, the World Health Organization and other public health and environmental organizations view indoor air pollution as one of the greatest risks to human health.
The old traditional sand and finish process, which uses solvent-based finishing products and lacks dust containment, creates an environment of airborne wood dust and harmful fumes in homes and businesses.
Solution: Bona innovations of dust containment and waterborne products have significantly reduced the health and environmental hazards of hardwood floor care. Bona is the first manufacturer in the industry to offer a complete hardwood floor finishing and floor care system, GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified.
What is GREENGUARD? The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute is an industry independent, non-profit organization that established standards and testing for indoor products. Their goal is to improve public health by helping manufacturers build safer products. These products will not pollute the air with harmful levels of dangerous chemicals or particulates. The GREENGUARD Certification focuses exclusively on VOC emissions from finishing and cleaning products and the air contaminants released that people can breathe.
