Formaldehyde Testing

Why test your home for formaldehyde

It is important to have a formaldehyde test done in your home if you suspect that there might be high levels of this hazardous chemical present. Formaldehyde can cause health issues such as headaches, nausea, eye and throat irritation, and respiratory problems.

High levels of this volatile organic compound (VOC) can also be found in furniture, rugs, paint, insulation, cleaning agents, and other common household items. Although there are DIY tests on the market, these kits only give you a relatively vague idea of your home or business levels.

How we test for Formaldehyde

We’re experts in the latest technology used to detect formaldehyde and can suggest ways to reduce its impact on your family’s health. We use a variety of tools and techniques to detect the presence of this hazardous chemical in your home.

Common Testing Methods

Taking samples from the air inside your home and analyzing them for levels of formaldehyde.

Once the samples are collected, they are sent to a laboratory where they are tested for levels of this hazardous VOC.

No, we use non-invasive means to determine the amount of formaldehyde present in a room and do not require any physical contact with surfaces or objects.

  • Ventilate your living space as much as possible.
  • Avoid using products that contain formaldehyde, such as certain furniture, carpets and paints.
  • Reduce humidity levels in the home by using a dehumidifier or opening windows to allow moisture to escape.

No, because formaldehyde may accumulate over time, so it's important to practice preventive measures to maintain safe indoor air quality. Regular testing is recommended to monitor levels of formaldehyde in the home or workplace.
