I wrote you recently with my reaction to a 60 Minutes story that high levels of formaldehyde are being released from wood laminate flooring made in China and sold through Lumber Liquidators.  Since then, the New York Times also has chimed in.
Without re-hashing the gory details, there’s no doubt that these stories have caused alarm among those who have purchased this flooring. After all, formaldehyde is classified as a known human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,
To help homeowners get the information they need, SGS Galson Laboratories now offers a simple kit to test formaldehyde levels in homes. It costs as low as $99 and a home owner can readily determine if the levels are safe or if they need to call in an IAQ expert to assist. We try to make it as user-friendly as possible with simple instructions and offer a turn-around time for results in three days or less.
You probably spend most of your professional time at work sites but if you get questions from homeowners, we’re here to help.  The SGS Galson Laboratories Formaldehyde Home Testing Kit can be ordered by calling 888-432-5227 and we have a web page with more detailed information.  Let us know if we can help.
