Formaldehyde is in Every Home

Why You Should Test Your Air For Formaldehyde?

Formaldehyde vaporizes from numerous sources and can cause serious health problems .












Sources include:

  • Laminate floors

  • Cabinetry

  • Pressed wood products (particle board, plywood paneling, and medium density fiberboard (MDF)

  • Foam insulation

  • Carpets

  • Drapery fabrics

  • Resins; glues

  • Cigarettes

  • Unvented fuel-burning appliances (gas-stoves or kerosene heaters

Although there are do-it-yourself testing kits on the market, it is highly recommended that you have a trained professional perform the formaldehyde testing. These home testing kits can only give you a relatively vague idea of the levels in your home or business. A professional formaldehyde testing company will have proper testing equipment which will improve the accuracy of the testing process. The results that come back from a professional laboratory will be highly accurate which is important when attempting to locate the source of this potentially harmful gas.
