Discover high level of formaldehyde upon moving in?
When the renovation of a new home is completed, and you are enjoying the joy of moving into your new abode, there are often some easily overlooked health concerns that can pose risks to you and your family.
One of the issues worth paying attention to in your new home, as mentioned in this article, is formaldehyde.
Common Issues – Excessive Formaldehyde?
Formaldehyde is one of the most common toxic indoor air pollutants and is classified as a Group 1 carcinogen by the World Health Organization.
During the renovation process, formaldehyde is released into the indoor air from newly purchased furniture, paint, pressed wood products and fabric furnishings, which exceeds the standard by 2 to 3 times, and in severe cases, it can reach 3 to 4 ppm, which is approximately 50 times the standard.
Common Issues – Effects of inhaling too much formaldehyde?
Inhaling formaldehyde can cause irritation to the eyes and nose, leading to symptoms such as dry throat, nasal sensitivity, and stinging eyes. Long-term exposure can result in inflammation of the respiratory tract, coughing, and other respiratory system disorders. It may even increase the risk of nasopharyngeal and colorectal cancer.
Research has shown that people spend more than 8 hours a day at home, where infants and young children sometimes spend an entire day indoors. Therefore, if formaldehyde is not properly addressed, the indoor concentration of formaldehyde can continue to rise, posing an invisible threat to your health and that of your family.
