If you've got flooring in your home from Lumber Liquidators, you might be a little concerned after a recent "60 Minutes" report. The broadcast accused the company of selling some laminate flooring from China tainted with excessive levels of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen.
The pollutant can seep from the floors into the air.
Now the company is offering any customer who asks for it a free home air quality kit to test for the presence of formaldehyde.
Here's 3 ways to get it:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Use this online form.
- Call customer care line at 1-800-366-4204.
The company said the the test results will be analyzed by an independent and accredited lab and emailed within 10 days.
Lumber Liquidators installs approximately over 300,000,000 square feet of flooring per year. However, the lower-cost laminate flooring at issue is only 15 percent of sales, the company said. Hardwood flooring customers are not affected.
