finish only needs to have low VOC ratings. VOC stands for
or the amount
of chemicals that enter the air when a finish is used. It is
recommended by many groups that VOC ratings for wood floor finishes
to be in the “green”
category, they must be under <250 g/liter. In strict
compliance states such as California, it could be as low as <100
Gloss Finish has a certified VOC rating of <92.96 g/liter.
Satin Finish has a certified VOC rating of <77.02 g/liter.
These certified VOC ratings put
as the leader in the industry for true green compliance by
anyone’s VOC standards!

But is low VOC enough? It is
belief that just as important as VOC ratings is the actual chemicals
that make up a finish. There are many modern water based urethane
finishes with low VOCs that claim they are “green”. But upon simple
examination of the material safety data sheet (MSDS), which shows
the properties of these so called “green” finishes, you can easily
find toxic chemicals!
All solutions used in the
service including our finishes, contain no toxic, caustic, or banned
in true green refinishing!
funny how popular being green is now,” says
CEO, founder and creator, Daniel Praz. “To me, this is just
common sense. “Green” simply means “safe”. When I developed the
system, I knew I personally would be doing the service, and I only
wanted to use safe materials—for my own health and the health and
safety of my clients. I have refinished more than 1,000 wood floors
myself, and I promise you our service is the safe and
environmentally responsible choice for your wood floor needs!”
