that can cause cancer in humans if we're exposed to too much. its in many types of household products and made headlines last year when laminate flooring from lumber liquidators was reported to emit worrisome levels of the gas. consumer reports has tested a variety of flooring for formaldehyde. jenna sachs has a look at the results in this contact 6 report. laminate flooring is less expensive than solid wo there have been concerns that the flooring emits formaldehyde. so consumer reports bought a variety of wood-based flooring products and ran lab tests over the past year. "it was a small study, but we did find that laminate and engineered wood had consistently higher levels of formaldehyde emissions compared to prefinished solid-wood samples that we tested." natsot: flooring installation if you're putting in new flooring, consumer reports says pre-finished solid- wood flooring is a better choice

or engineered wood flooring for several years, theres less cause for concern because formaldehyde is a volatile chemical that will dissipate over time. "the problem is lots of products can emit formaldehyde, especially when they're new. things like permanent-press fabric, upholstery, plywood, particleboard, paints, and cigarettes all can emit formaldehyde." to lower formaldehyde levels, open windows to let in fresh air, wash permanent-press clothing and curtains before using them, choos without formaldehyde- containing glues, and ban indoor smoking. but forget about using an air purifier. it probably wont lower formaldehyde levels. nor will putting a rug over your floor. on july 27th, the epa finalized a new ruleto reduce exposure to formaldehyde vapors from certain wood products. starting next year, wood products that comply with the new federal standards will be labeled, making it easier for consumers to make informed choices. i'm jenna sachs - contact 6.
