Formaldehyde Testing

Testing for formaldehyde

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

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.

In fact, in 2018 the EPA suggests that Americans inhale enough formaldehyde to increase the risk of developing leukemia and other illnesses.
