Formaldehyde is a common indoor air pollutant with a pungent odor.
Formaldehyde is a common indoor air pollutant with a pungent odor. Wood products such as furniture and cabinetry, as well as fabric coatings like carpeting, are listed as some of the main sources of formaldehyde. It commonly resides in the glues that hold these items together, and if not cured properly during the production process, formaldehyde can escape and enter the air of a home or workplace causing adverse health issues.
This test kit is useful to evaluate formaldehyde in homes, offices and commercial establishments including hospitals, schools, hotels, airports, etc.
Common effects of formaldehyde toxin exposure can include:
- Burning eyes and throat
- Watering eyes
- Breathing problems
- Aggravation of asthma issues
Formaldehyde Screen Check Directions:
This Formaldehyde Test Kit identifies and measures the concentration levels of formaldehyde at your location with an easy-to-use device called the Bio-Badge. This device can absorb Formaldehyde particulates (particles) by collecting air from an indoor area of up to 2800 square feet over a 24-48 hour testing period. (The preferred sampling time is 24 hours).
Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab) will provide a final report which is included in the cost of the Formaldehyde Test Kit. Concentration levels of formaldehyde are reported in parts per million (ppm), and are compared to what is considered to be normal. Formaldehyde can be detected at levels as low as 0.002 parts per million (ppm) for a 24 hour test.
Once EDLab receives the Bio-Badge sample for analysis, your lab report will be generated and emailed within 7-10 business days.
This home test will:
- Provide Tools for on-site collection of evaluation samples to screen for Formaldehyde
- Be inexpensive and easy
- Provide Sample Collection Device That Can Be Used to Measure Room or Personal Exposure
- Meet OSHA Accuracy Requirements
Everything you need to collect and send in your sample is included. There are no additional fees required after test purchase.
This is a safe, easy Formaldehyde screening test for your home or office.
