Abstract
Sealing of wooden parqueted floors with coatings has frequently led to complains because of odor annoyances. To estimate the VOC emissions of such a system and its time dependence, measurements were made in order to quantify the main solvent components in the air of two rooms with freshly renovated parqueted floors over a period of several months. In another investigation the formaldehyde emission of an acid-hardened parquet sealing was measured over a period of 37 days after application in a 1 cubicmetre chamber. The findings show that under unfavourable conditions the finishing of parqueted floors, which is usually done without ventilation (closed windows), may result in elevated VOC values for a longer period of time.
