Ceramic does not give off toxic fumes


Ceramic does not give off toxic fumes. Some floors do not give off acidic, corrosive or toxic fumes… as long as a fire doesn’t break out. But ceramic does not contain plastic or give off toxic fumes.

When a fire breaks out, combustible surfaces containing toxic substances may burn and give off harmful fumes upon contact with heat. But ceramic is fire resistant and unlike many other floor and wall covering materials does not pose a fire risk to users.
