Is Formaldehyde A Problem?
As a commonly used chemical compound in construction materials, formaldehyde can exist throughout your home or business without you realizing it. Formaldehyde is found in various forms and is a distinctive, colorless, strong-smelling gaseous and flammable substance at room temperatures. This chemical compound can also be found in a range of manufactured flooring materials such as fiber board, pressed wood and plywood as national laws allow a certain tolerable level to be used in manufacturing.
Everyday items including shampoo, nail polish and paper towels also can contain acceptable limits of formaldehyde. That being said, at certain levels, formaldehyde is unsafe. At low-level usage it is still in high demand due to a lack of alternative materials to replace its desirable properties. The problem occurs when levels exceed what is considered to be safe, and negative health effects can result. In fact, it is considered a probable carcinogen by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
