Q: I am removing carpet due to asthma. What has worse fumes, Pergo or prefinished hardwood?
A: Boa-Franc, who make their Mirage floor line have assured me there is no off gassing in any of their products, either solid wood or engineered. You must understand that Prego or any other laminate in not a life time investment. It has limited shelf life. the Mirage floors are really quite exceptional, especially the engineered.
