Anyone know any that is non toxic, no formaldehyde, no voc? I've been looking for a long time & the ones that might fit that description are not available in my area. Thanks.

Have you asked at full service, dedicated flooring stores in your area and towns/cities nearby? (not just flooring depts)

Seems they should be able to tell you something about what is available out there. They also will have the ability to order from any supplier, plus install.

Thanks Conrad, I live in a small town with only home depots & lowe's they don't know & will have to investigate, so they told me. I can find online but I'd rather see & smell what I'm getting. I'm still researching. thanks again!

I'm also in a small town in Ga. with only Lowes & HD. We got our flooring in Tallahassee. Just spent one day down there going from place to place until we found what we wanted & could afford. But we didn't have the restrictions you mentioned for our flooring.

You might just do some research by looking up possible stores (flooring stores that sell carpet/vinyl/tile) in neighboring cities (find by telephone book or on line), by calling them early in the morning. Just after they open, they may not be as busy and can better answer your questions.
If you can find what you want to look at, then travel there and see it. They should be able to either ship it to you or an installer will drive it there.

Home Depot and Lowes are usually at the bottom of my list for something like this. Both knowledge and choices, I have personally found lacking in these stores.

Modern technology can produce floor coverings from almost every material on the planet, whether that be organic or synthetic. There is also the unique option for having a cotton canvas rug created for you to suit your decor perfectly in size and colors.

You can contact a contractor and discuss your needs to get the best flooring done. Technically, concrete floor covering is the strongest and resistant towards any kind of activity.

I don't know about non-toxic floors, but I do know that this company greensumblue.com offers locally made non-toxic floor cleaner. You should check them out.
