What are the Best Low Odor Rubber Flooring Options?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: June, 2020 - Modified: September, 2023

Rubber floors are extremely popular in a wide variety of indoor home and commercial settings, for a number of reasons. Once rubber floors are installed, they require little maintenance, and they are stain, mold, and mildew resistant – making them one of the best flooring options for an environment where moisture may be present such as a basement, garage, gym, or fitness facility. Rubber will not absorb water or other liquids, and it is extremely durable and versatile. One of the downfalls of rubber, is that it sometimes has a strong odor. That isn’t always the case, however, and Greatmats has low odor rubber flooring options that perform well, look great, are environmentally friendly, and low voc!
