Looking for advice on how to find non-toxic flooring
I need to re-floor a room that flooded. This is the first time I've been faced with installing flooring as I've just lived with what was here when I moved in. I'm mainly interested in carpet but might be interested in other types of flooring. My primary goal is something non-toxic. I don't have any particular sensitivities or health conditions; it just seems like a good idea to not surround myself with toxic chemicals. I haven't found the flooring stores to be very easy to navigate with this purpose in mind. Living in the Bay Area, I would have thought many would have gone down this road before me but I haven't found any advice givers on the topic. There are many blogs and websites out there leading to websites without prices and broken links. I really would like some actionable advice- like store x has many options for that, talk to person y, look for a, b, c labels, x backing is as good as you are going to get, don't bother with y because its astronomically expensive. It seems like there are two extremes- the uber pure, uber expensive option and everything else. I was hoping to make a wise choice between these extremes based on what a mere mortal can do. But it's tricky. You can have the idea that something is really bad for you and then end up buying something that is actually worse because you weren't aware of the details. I was hoping there was knowledgeable people out there. Thanks in advance for any advice!
