Children living in homes with vinyl flooring and furniture treated with fire-retardants have concentrations of toxic compounds in their blood and urine. Vinyl floorings contain semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) such as benzyl butyl phthalate, and flame-retardant furniture are treated with SVOCs such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs).

Researchers from Duke University found children raised in homes having these flooring and furniture can have high amounts of the SVOCs used to produce the flooring and furniture in their body. The researchers presented this discovery at the conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) last week in Washington.

Potential Effects of Exposure to PBDEs and Benzyl Butyl Phthalate

Children who get exposed to PBDEs are prone to any of the following conditions –

  • Obesity
  • Neurodevelopmental delays
  • Cancer
  • Endocrine and thyroid problems, etc.

Children who get exposed to benzyl butyl phthalate may equally be infected with –

  • Respiratory issues
  • Skin irritations
  • Myeloma – malignant tumor of the bone marrow
  • Reproductive disorders, etc.

Heather Stapleton, an environmental chemist at Duke, said SVOCs are widely used in electronics, furniture and building materials. She said these chemicals can be detected in indoor air and children who spend most of their time indoors can get exposed to them.

Children Living in Homes with Vinyl Flooring and Treated Furniture Are At Higher Risks of Exposure

Scientists from Duke University, Boston University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted an experiment to see how exposure to SVOCs can impact children. The study ran for three years and included 203 children from 190 homes.

The researchers were interested in knowing if exposure occurred through breathing of charged indoor air or skin contact with products containing the chemicals. So they analyzed indoor dust, air and furniture foam in the participants’ homes. They also took samples of urine and blood from the participants to test for SVOCs.

“We quantified 44 biomarkers of exposure to phthalates, organophosphate esters, brominated flame retardants, parabens, phenols, antibacterial agents and perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS),” Stapleton said.

Ultimately, they found that children living in homes whose furniture were treated with PBDEs had six times concentrations of the chemicals in their blood. Those living in homes with vinyl flooring had 15 times the amount of the benzyl butyl phthalate metabolite in their urine – as against those whose homes do not have vinyl flooring.
