Safety First is Family First

Furniture and decorations are important in home décor as they define the resident style and functionality. However, did you know that there are certain types of furniture and decorations that contain dangers where we least expect them? It is a 'formaldehyde,' a toxic substance that often releases into the air from furniture products. Prolonged exposure through inhalation could potentially have adverse effects on our health.

What is “Formaldehyde” and why should we avoid it?

Formaldehyde is, one of the form of formalin, a substance that releases into the air from furniture products and home decorations. This substance is used as component in various décor products and heavily produced in the chemical industry.

In the furniture industry, formaldehyde is used in adhesive bonding to piece furniture together as it possesses the property to bond wood and is commonly used in making particle board and plywood. It is also used as part of the surface coating of furniture and various cabinets. This substance, over time, turns into vapor and releases it into the air which becomes a significant cause of various health issues.

In Europe, standards for measuring formaldehyde levels are set to control the emission of formaldehyde and prevent harm to consumers. The "E1" standard is a global standard for furniture, ensuring it is safe for users. This differs from "E2," which indicates higher formaldehyde emissions and poses a risk to users as it exceeds the specified formaldehyde levels.

Dangers of formaldehyde: Knowing before it's too late.

The danger of formaldehyde comes from inhaling the vapor or fumes of this substance. Most of the time, we are not aware that our indoor air contains these elements, making it challenging to avoid them. Inhaling formaldehyde vapor can cause irritation to the eyes, nose, and skin or result in respiratory issues such as nasal irritation, pulmonary inflammation, and chest tightness. Prolonged or excessive inhalation may increase the risk of cancer.

Formaldehyde and how to avoid it.

Generally, newly constructed or recently renovated homes often have 5 times higher levels of formaldehyde indoors than outdoor air. Choosing furniture that meets standards is an easy way to reduce the risk associated with these substances.
