Air testing for formaldehyde has long been required by the New Jersey Department of Health for child care centers located near hair and nail salons and funeral homes. However, to complicate matters, formaldehyde is also found in many common building products, such as composite wood flooring, and sealants which results in off-gas. Our partner laboratory, EMSL Analytical, now offers testing of such materials which could benefit not only child care centers but developers as well.
