TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to concerns over increased formaldehyde (HCHO) levels in homes and businesses, Building Health Check, LLC, has released a "How to" video to help customers better understand the process of sample collection. The video provides a simplified approach for using the Formaldehyde Screen Check (FOSC) available at www.IndoorAirTest.com.
Formaldehyde can be found in a number of products, including particleboard, plywood, paneling, pressed-wood products, urea formaldehyde foam insulation, some synthetic fabrics (especially permanent press), shampoos, cigarette smoke, fuel burning appliances, kerosene space heaters and some cosmetics.
To test for the presence of formaldehyde, the VA, Armed Forces, healthcare facilities, and some of the largest industrial corporations throughout the world have used vapor monitor badges, such as the Formaldehyde Screen Check, for over 25 years.
This DIY test kit can be used to measure personal exposure or room exposure in homes or businesses. It is easy to use and inexpensive, and because it is analyzed by an accredited laboratory, results are data-validated for accuracy. Customers receive a written lab report of their sample results.
