Are plastic fumes toxic to the brain?

My house smells really odd since I had new flooring installed in the basement.

Where new flooring is concerned, it's a common occurrence for the substance to smell a bit initially. Open your windows and air your house and the smell should soon dissipate and eventually disappear. If, however, members of your household are pregnant or very young, it may be wise to take no chances and re-locate for a few days.

No, this smell of plastic that is being emanated will not cause brain damage in anyone. It is normal floor new plastic smell emanates. Fan the environment as much as possible the smell will come out naturally in a short time.
