Formaldehyde is likely a term you have picked up from various ways in your day-to-day living. That is because it naturally forms in fruit, humans ourselves produce it and it is used in everyday cleaning products from time to time – this is just to name a couple. Why would you need Burke, VA formaldehyde removal specialists then?
While the direct health related issues of over exposure to formaldehyde continues to be studied, it is believed the exposure can cause addiction and cancer long term. Short-term exposure can result in the following symptoms, headaches, itchy eyes, shortness of breaths, insomnia and mood swings to name a few. The tricky part is each person reacts differently and therefore narrowing down the issues to formaldehyde is tough.
The main sources of formaldehyde in large quantities are blackened food, kitchen smoke, candles, fireplaces and other nearby places outside. The kitchen gas stove is the worst of all, believed to cause many issues. If you are sensitive to formaldehyde and use many skin care products, this is a liability as is wooden furniture and laminate flooring.
Formaldehyde removal can be performed by a few methods of your own. Decreasing the room temperature decreases the levels as heat volatizes the gases, the same goes with humidity levels. Following on, any of the above sources of excessive formaldehyde should be removed from direct sunlight. The more sunlight the hotter they get, in turn producing more formaldehyde. Ventilation is another step to help reduce heat as more fresh air leads to less purging of chemicals, which means less formaldehyde forming. While you can use dehumidifiers and air filters, keeping in mind the above ideas in your day-to-day life will hopefully provide noticeable benefits at minimal cost.
Formaldehyde removal by Burke, VA experts is likely your next step. They are able to measure the levels in the air and take the appropriate action to bring them down to livable levels using various techniques.
Formaldehyde is a tricky subject to navigate given that it is produced by living organisms and is contained in so many household products. Formaldehyde removal in Burke, VA on your own is possible, however for more serious cases, you will need to bring in local experts.

The job was to remove all the old rock-wool insulation and 60-years of dust, bird droppings, and dirt from the attic so that new fiber glass insulation could be installed. Dan's team of workers did a super job in cleaning the attic of all this stuff. I could find nothing remaining between the joist or in corners of the attic. It was so clean that you could have food served on the floor in the attic. They were on-time, completed the work as scheduled, and the work team was professional, organized, and experienced. Highly recommend Envirotex.

Envirotex truly came to our rescue. With the discovery of asbestos during our current renovation project, we were faced with the possibility of a considerable delay. Envirotex's prompt response, competitive pricing and flexibility to work off hours prevented any schedule slippage.
Envirotex helped alleviate the stress associated with the flooding of our basement. Although the insurance adjuster was quick to get a company in there to rip out the carpeting and drag it out into our driveway (where it remained for several days), neither the adjuster nor the carrier was concern about the ensuing mold growth that we were seeing on the drywall and ceiling tiles. If not for the professional survey, analysis and report that you furnished detailing the extent of the mold contamination, the cause thereof and the work that was required to be performed, I am certain that we would still be fighting with the insurance company. Thank you, we are very glad that we had Envirotex in our corner!
