Because flooring is a considerable part of your home, we know how important it is to make it as safe and secure as possible for your family. Which is the sole reason why our hard surface products are Beaulieu Lab Certified. What does that mean? It states that we ensure the products that make their way to our warehouses, retail stores and your homes and tested and surpass the industry quality standards. Other certifications and treatments are also a part of our quality process in making the best product we could. Put our flooring to the test! We know we did!
The Beaulieu Lab certification insures that the floor covering you’re buying surpasses industry quality standards. Before it reaches your home, it undergoes multiple tests which are performed by a professional laboratory. It has been verified for things such as abrasion and stain resistance, stability and flexibility. Beaulieu Canada is one of the only flooring companies to require these tests because the well-being of its customers is very important.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is California’s “clean air agency”. A few years ago, the organization launched the Phase II certification. The stated goals of CARB include attaining and maintaining healthy air quality and protecting the public from exposure to toxic air contaminants. A floor covering that holds this certification meets stringent standards for volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions.
Some of Beaulieu Canada’s hard surface flooring products have been chosen by designers as being surfaces that showcase the latest trends in terms of color and variations. These products were purposely manufactured to display light to extreme color variations within the same style.
Indoor air quality is an important issue to consider when choosing a new floor covering. This is why the FloorScore® certification ensures that hard surface flooring and adhesives are tested for compliance with rigorous indoor air quality requirements.
The GreenGuard Gold® certification guarantees that your floor covering doesn’t contain harmful amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOC), giving you complete peace of mind when it comes to your family’s indoor air quality.
Today, the quality of our indoor air is an important environmental and health consideration, especially since we spend most of our time indoors. The Green Label Plus® program sets one of the highest standards for indoor air quality, thus ensuring that customers are purchasing the very lowest volatile organic compounds (VOC) emitting products on the market and symbolizing the carpet industry’s commitment to a better environment for living, learning and healing.
Phtalates are organic compounds derived from phthalic acid. They are mainly used as plasticizers, a substance added to plastic, particularly PVC, to give flexibility or other qualities. Phtalates are found in many common objects such as shower curtain, kid’s toys, medical tools and sometimes flooring. It has been proven along the years that phtalates are not chemically attached to the plastic that contains them, meaning they can be released in the air and inhaled. Some phtalates are suspected of having adverse effects on the human endocrine system and the reproductive system. The endocrine system consists of all organs and glands that produce hormones. The hormones have the function of regulating metabolism, growth, development and many more essential body functions. After many flags were raised about the content of certain PVC products, Beaulieu Canada opted for materials that do not contain phtalates.
When you see this green logo, know that your product will not release any phtalates into the air you are breathing.

Carpet has been one of the most popular floor coverings in homes for years. One of the main advantages of carpets is that they are available in a wider selection of design possibilities with more textures, patterns and colors than any other flooring. With modern fibers and new manufacturing technologies, today’s carpets are well beyond the antiquated ones of yesteryears! They have many added benefits besides infinite design possibilities, including cushioned comfort underfoot, sound insulation and improved indoor air quality.
