You love your home, but could it be harming you? It’s possible, espeically if the interior carpentry materials in your home contain formaldehyde, a toxic gas that can lead to serious health issues, including cancer.

These materials are frequently used in the construction of cabinets and other furnishings in homes, making it all too easy for this hazardous chemical to enter the air we breathe.
