The Health Risks of Formaldehyde

As we mentioned above, formaldehyde is actually pretty scary. Did you know the presence of formaldehyde is directly connected to cancer? It's known to cause cancer of the nose and throat when present in high concentrations. Unfortunately, formaldehyde is commonly used in a variety of manufacturing processes, so it's often found in building materials like carpentry and flooring. Moreover, it often ends up in concentrations far beyond what's considered "safe" by national standards. It can also linger in surface materials and indoor air for quite a long time. That's why it's so important to get a professional formaldehyde test of your property—especially if you ever noticed a strong, pickle-like odor, which can be a sign of formaldehyde.

Call Common Sense Inspections for Formaldehyde Analysis

In Seattle and surrounding areas, we're the team to call for an accurate formaldehyde air test and inspection. Unlike other formaldehyde testing companies around, we're qualified for testing formaldehyde levels in both commercial and residential settings. We use laboratory-approved sampling methods, primarily testing air but also sampling bulk pieces of building materials (like flooring and cabinets) when necessary. Approximately 5 days later, you'll receive a comprehensive report of your formaldehyde analysis results.

If your formaldehyde test comes back positive, Common Sense Inspections will recommend a qualified, respected contractor to perform the remediation. Due to the health and safety hazards we've discussed, we encourage you in the strongest possible terms to hire a remediation contractor as soon as you can.
