Connecticut and New York Formaldehyde Testing of Manufactured Laminate Flooring
There has been an increased national awareness and growing concern recently regarding formaldehyde gas being released from manufactured laminated flooring products. The adhesives and sealants used in some of these products may contain formaldehyde and this formaldehyde vapor can off-gas from the finished product even after installation in a home.
Many of these products are safety-rated to European and California standards for formaldehyde off-gassing levels, but recent investigations have shown that formaldehyde off-gassing can still be a concern from these products and be elevated above acceptable levels. Formaldehyde gas is highly toxic and a confirmed human carcinogen.
Professional Building Inspectors (PBI) can test the indoor air quality in your New York and Connecticut home to help you better evaluate the potential formaldehyde hazards of your laminated flooring products.
