San Rafael, CA – Michael’s Custom Built Upholstery announced today that effective January 27, 2014, they will be offering their clientele poly foam that is free of flame retardant chemicals.
 
California Technical Bulletin 117 (TB117), originally adopted in 1975 required furniture manufacturers to use foam products that had been injected with flame retardant chemicals. The new regulation, California Technical Bulletin 117-2013 (TB117-2013) replaces the 1975 standard. As of January 1, 2014, manufacturers can discontinue the use of components treated with flame retardant chemicals. The new standard does not ban chemicals from being used, but it no longer mandates that the chemicals be present.
 
Michael’s Upholstery has been serving the residents and Interior Designers of Marin, Sonoma, San Francisco and the East Bay since 1980.  Michael’s builds new upholstered furniture, reupholsters old furniture, makes slipcovers, toss pillows and indoor and outdoor cushions. Michael’s also offers a service to replace your old cushion filling with new.
 
Michael’s has long been a leader in the use of chemical free paddings and cushions, offering natural latex foam and wool battings as an alternative to the petrochemical based products for many years.
