Teragren flooring ODOR
I hope someone can help. I have 400 sq feet of unboxed (just removed plastic on outside of the boxes) in my livingroom and just sitting in the boxes it's smelling up my entire house!
I'm of course concerned. I specifically chose Teragren based on their Floorscore certification, low emissions, etc. Can I trust that this smell I'm smelling isn't toxic?
I called the company and they just kind of acted perplexed, said there should only be a slight 'sweet' odor. The smell isn't a pleasant sweet smell to me - smells more like chemicals.
I seriously want to have it independently tested! I can hardly 'return' it at this point. The installer is coming tomorrow. We'll see what kind of headache (literally) the smell gives him and what he says.
I'm having a 'slumber party' with my kids and my niece tonight, and normally when she sleeps over we sleep out in our dining room (because living room has the flooring) and it smells so bad out here, we're camping out in the bedroom.
UGH! Please someone tell me that this flooring smells but what I'm smelling isn't TOXIC. I hope once it's installed it might go away? (If it doesn't I don't know what I'll do - I can't stand it right now - and it's still in the BOXES)
This isn't Lumber Liquidators junk. This is Teragren. I paid a lot for this floor!
