CARB compliance is important

Since its founding in 1985, Mullican Flooring has dedicated itself to creating the highest-quality hardwood flooring in the world. We take great pride in manufacturing superior products at a competitive price, while adhering to current regulatory and sustainability standards.

One standard that has seen a lot of mainstream media coverage recently is compliance with regulations set by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

The term “CARB compliant” indicates that a product meets California state regulations, which are the most stringent in the United States. These regulations place limits on the amount of formaldehyde that can be emitted from composite wood products. Formaldehyde exists naturally as part of the environment, but it is also a chemical used in building materials, such as wood products, adhesives and coatings. CARB Phase 2 standards limit the emissions of formaldehyde at 0.05 parts per million for hardwood plywood, and it’s anticipated that the federal government and other states may impose similar restrictions.

We’re proud to say that all of Mullican Flooring’s engineered and solid products are California Air Resources Board — Phase 2 compliant. Each year, a third-party certifier verifies that the formaldehyde emissions standards are being met in all of our products, whether produced domestically or abroad. Our CARB certificate is one of several certifications that can be found on our website. Check them out here.
