Green Certified Products for Healthier Living.

Have you heard about GREENGUARD Certification or GREENGUARD Gold Certification? If you’re a green-home lover and value sustainable products that protect you and your family from harmful chemical emissions, this blog is for you!
When you purchase your new Landmark Home, you are equipped with so many amazing green features that enrich your everyday living. Items such as a high efficiency furnace. Hardwood flooring that is CARB2 compliant, which means the substrate and finish is free from off gassing unsafe chemicals. Moisture free building that eliminates mould and mildew behind your walls, which can lead to poor indoor air conditions (especially for children) and so much more. All of these items work together to promote a safe, clean and healthy living environment for you and your loved ones.

Beyond the structure, mechanical, and interior finishes in a Landmark Home–we want to talk about how you can shop for furniture and decorate your home to further promote a healthier living for your family. That’s where GREENGUARD comes in!

Products that are GREENGUARD Certified for low chemical emissions can contribute to the creation of healthier indoor environments and are scientifically proven to meet some of the world’s most rigorous third-party chemical emissions Standards. 1

The certification ensures you are purchasing textiles and furniture that promise safety. The testing validates low VOC emissions, clean finishes such as varnish, stain, paint, adhesive and beyond. Fabrics are tested for flammability and other chemical related characteristics that ultimately result in optimum health and peace of mind for you, and your little ones.

GREENGUARD easily differentiates products in the crowded green marketplace so you can make the best choices for you and your family. And, allows you to demonstrate your commitment to indoor air quality with safe, low-emitting products. 2

We hope this blog helps you shop smarter for your new home and motivates to look for the label instead of uncertified, green-washed products.
