Excessive Amounts of Formaldehyde May Lead to Severe Complications
In the wake of a “60 Minutes” report claiming that Lumber Liquidators had sold Chinese-made laminate flooring containing unsafe amounts of formaldehyde, some homeowners and business owners may be wondering if other flooring products contain dangerous amounts of formaldehyde. One such company, CFL Flooring, is quickly becoming one of the leading flooring manufacturers in China and claims to produce “high value added products at attractive prices” and “offer unique value to customers worldwide.” However, there are reports that the company may have sourced some of its laminate flooring from Chinese mills that use excessive amounts of formaldehyde.
Although the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued its final rule regarding formaldehyde emissions from certain wood products, some flooring products may still contain harmful levels of formaldehyde. According to the agency’s press release, the EPA worked with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to help ensure that the final rule is consistent with requirements already outlined in the state of California.
Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen and can cause serious adverse health effects, including respiratory complications and cancer. The naturally-occurring compound is used as an adhesive in a variety of wood products, including furniture, cabinets, bookcases, and flooring.
