I purchased 500 SF of Morning Star Bamboo and about 2 months after it was installed I started having respiratory problems. Sore throat, dryness, runny nose, headaches. There was also a distinct smell coming from the floor. I went to the doctors and they said it was bronchitis (at the time I did not know about the formaldehyde in this flooring. It is now 4 months since I went to the doctors and I'am still suffering with the same symptoms. I called my doctor as soon as I heard about the formaldehyde in the floor and she said theres a good possibility that my symptoms could be coming from the flooring if the levels are high.
I also had problems with this floor gapping and the locking mechanism coming unlocked. The flooring shrunk about an inch and a quarter from my base molding which was not on the wall when installed, so the shrinkage is about 2 inches. You can see the padding through all the gaps. Called Lumber Liquidators and they sent out one of their inspectors and of course they blamed it on the installer and washed their hands of any responsibility. Lumber Liquidators will rip you off and any warranty they offer is to protect them not you. There are hundreds of complaints online. I stress, DO NOT BUY from LumberLiquidators. Read the reviews! These people are telling the truth.
