Formaldehyde and Sick Building Syndrome
Thaddeus Godish, Ph.D., of Ball State University, Indiana, is an authority on formaldehyde and indoor air quality. His article, Indoor Air Quality Notes: Formaldehyde - Our Homes and Health, is available online. It includes symptom checklists useful in detecting sick building-related illness, including symptoms common to formaldehyde toxicity.


Environmental Testing
Several people have suggested this company and made positive comments about the testing and accuracy. Although there may be less expensive options, Air Quality Research sells a more sophisicated test for ambient air measurement of formaldehyde. The kit is like a test tube that one suspends in a room for a set time (ie 24 hours). You cap the tube and mail it to them; they then tell you the exact parts per million for the air in that sample.
