Formaldehyde Air Test. 2-sample kit


The Formaldehyde test measures concentration of this toxic gas in air of your house. You should consider this test if you experience dry eyes, eye irritation, or nose bleeding. Our test is based on official OSHA 1007 method, which is the same test that we offer to home inspectors and air quality consultants. This is a professional grade test, which requires laboratory analysis of your samples by our laboratory. 

This kit includes 2 samplers and is sufficient for a small house or office. For larger properties, order 2-3 kits.  The sampling procedure is quite simple and does not require any previous experience. You can read it here.

To place your order for formaldehyde kit, select number of kits, and complete the order. The price you see, includes the sampler and laboratory testing. We will ship your samplers right away.  Once we test your samples, we send you a formal report by email.

Formaldehyde is a gas that is usually released by treated wood, polymers, paints, varnishes, adhesives, polymer foams, laminate flooring, particulate boards, furniture and some other materials. Formaldehyde is extremely toxic. For comparison, it is 10 time more toxic than carbon monoxide and 1000 times more toxic than gasoline vapor. It causes asthma, and cancer. Usually spike in formaldehyde concentration happens when you install new floors, or buy new furniture.

The widely accepted standards for formaldehyde concentration in air are shown below:

1.50 ppm (parts per million of air) – this is 5 minute industrial exposure limit (Ceiling Exposure Limit, MOL OEL, Ontario Canada). In other words, workers cannot be ever exposed to more than 1.5 ppm of formaldehyde.

1.0 ppm – 15 minute industrial exposure limit (STEL, MOL OEL, Ontario Canada)

0.75 ppm – 8 hour industrial exposure limit (PEL, OSHA USA)

0.04 ppm (40 ppb or 50μg/m³)- guideline for residential houses (Health Canada)

0.005 – 0.010 ppm – this is a typical level of formaldehyde that we see in Canadian houses

In short, concentration of formaldehyde in your house should be o.o4 ppm or less. If you have any questions, please email us at your convenience
