Formaldehyde is a common indoor air pollutant with a pungent odor. Wood products such as furniture and cabinetry, as well as fabric coatings such as carpeting are listed as one of the main sources of formaldehyde. Formaldehyde 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 and cause adverse health issues including burning eyes and throat, watering eyes, nausea, breathing problems, and can exacerbate asthma issues. Formaldehyde is also listed as a probable human carcinogen by the US Environmental Protection Agency. This formaldehyde testing kit is an economical way to screen your home or workplace for the presence of this toxic chemical. This kit is simple to use and provides top-quality test results.
The Formaldehyde Screen Check
identifies and measures the concentration levels of formaldehyde at a desired test location by utilizing 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 (preferred sampling time is 24 hours). This kit is useful to evaluate formaldehyde in homes and in commercial establishments including hospitals, schools, hotels, airports, etc.
Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab) will provide a final report included in the cost of the Formaldehyde Screen Check 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.
