Every Home’s Silent Killer
Did you know that every day, in places we would least expect we are exposed to formaldehyde?
Formaldehyde is a chemical used in the manufacture of basic household items such as carpets, fabrics, bed linens, pressed wood products like plywood, medium density fibreboards, and particle boards. A colorless gas, formaldehyde is also present in cigarette smoke, gas stoves, glues, cosmetics, personal care products, paper grocery bags, waxed paper, paper tissues and towels.
Yes, the same formaldehyde we all know that is used to preserve dead tissue, is believed by experts to be the single most hazardous indoor air pollutant many people are unaware of.
The World Health Organization classifies formaldehyde as a carcinogen, or an agent that can cause cancer. It is also considered a serious health hazard by the US Environment Protection Agency and has included formaldehyde as a harmful chemical contaminant in its list of Volatile Organic Compounds.
Formaldehyde is present in the air inside our offices as well as in our own homes. There is evidence that people with prolonged exposure to formaldehyde develop a sensitivity to it, causing watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throats, nausea and difficulty in breathing. High concentrations may trigger attacks in people with asthma.
