Formaldehyde is a common chemical used in building materials and even household products. It can be found both indoors and outdoors. The most common sources of formaldehyde are homes that contain smokers and fuel-burning appliances that are not venting properly. Particleboards, shelves, and cabinets are just a few items found in the household that may have formaldehyde. A form of formaldehyde foam insulation was most commonly used in homes up until the late 1980's when it was determined that this was a concern due to health problems so it was taken off the residential market. This type of insulation has a dark yellow color. If you have questions on whether your home contains this type of insulation, give us a call today and we can help.
One of the most common hazards that can be found in the household is lead. In fact, a range of items at home has traces of this poisonous element. A highly dangerous metal, it can cause serious nerve damage and severe blood and brain disorders, especially in young children. Since many older residential properties may contain lead paint or piping as well as high concentrations of lead in the soil, it is important to have your home tested for lead to keep your family safe.
