ECOS Project Pick: A Non-Toxic Hardwood Floor Finish

ECOS 10/09/2014

Here at ECOS Paints we care passionately about both our products and the people that use them. Our paints and finishes were originally designed for people with multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), asthma, allergies, and issues with everyday chemicals. For twenty five years we’ve provided solutions for these people and today we’re sharing the story of one, Dasha, whose home needed major renovations. Check out her story and her gorgeous finished project using our hardwood floor finish.

Dasha was diagnosed with heavy metal toxicity and has been on a regimented program of detoxification under the care of a physician. After she and her husband’s home was damaged by ice storms, they needed to do some major work, which included installing new hardwood floors. Dasha did some research and found out that as of five years ago, all new hardwood floor finishes have Aluminum Oxide in them and using one of these products would have negatively affected her health and gone against her detoxification program. So, Dasha hunted around for a safer solution and discovered that ECOS Paints Woodshield Interior Varnish was going to be exactly what she needed to get her house back to looking good while supporting her journey back to health.

Dasha and her husband did all the work themselves, even though they had no experience, and we have to give them kudos – they did a great job! Check out the pictures below:

This project is exactly what inspires us to make the products that we do. Remodeling or repairing your home shouldn’t make you worried that you might get sick or make an already existing illness worse. And, we’re proud to provide a safe, healthy solution for people like Dasha.

Thanks, Dasha, for letting us share your story and the photos! We hope you’re enjoying your gorgeous new floors!
