Testing for formaldehyde in your home or office

Have you ever tested your air quality?
Is there formaldehyde in the air at your home or office?

Formaldehyde is a flammable, colorless gas with a strong odor, and is a byproduct of combustion and other natural processes.

Formaldehyde can be found in:

  • Composite wood products, like hardwood plywood, particleboard and medium density fiberboard
  • Household products such as glues, fabrics, paints, lacquers and paper products
  • Preservatives in medicines, cosmetics, dishwashing liquids and fabric softeners
  • Emissions from unvented gas stoves or kerosene space heaters
  • Building materials and insulation
  • Textiles/curtains/bedding
  • Fertilizers and pesticides
  • Cigarette smoke

People can be exposed to formaldehyde by breathing air that has been contaminated with it. But how much is too much? We’re all exposed to small amounts of formaldehyde in the air that has off-gassed from products like composite wood, but only recently has the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set limits on formaldehyde. The EPA is also researching what exposure levels may pose issues to our health, such as irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin, as well as some types of cancers.

Further, the EPA has found that indoor air can contain up to 100 times more pollutants than outdoor air, making indoor air quality a real health concern. To determine if formaldehyde is present in the household air you breathe, choose the yogi.
