Creating a Healthier Home


Pressed wood products are often made using adhesives that contain a formaldehyde resin. In the kitchen, pressed wood products include particleboard used in sub-flooring, shelving, and cabinets. Formaldehyde is emitted from these products into the indoor air and is especially high when products are new. High concentrations of formaldehyde may trigger asthma attacks.
