When activated by natural or artificial light and by the movement of air, Lauzon’s smart hardwood flooring is designed to continuously break down airborne toxins, creating a constant supply of pure air in the home. The flooring is specially formulated using a titanium dioxide technology that decomposes bacteria, viruses and molds and reduces potential carcinogens by constantly transforming toxic airborne particles into harmless water and carbon dioxide molecules. The flooring also reportedly helps reduce household odors such as cigarette smoke, pet urine and lingering cooking smells.
