How Do You Know If Your Laminate Flooring Was Recalled for Containing Formaldehyde?
Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to know whether or not you have high levels of formaldehyde in your laminate flooring without having the flooring tested; formaldehyde may be detected via scent in poorly ventilated areas, however in homes the dangerous chemical can easily go undetected. Lumber Liquidators is providing free formaldehyde test kits for customers who purchased laminate flooring that may have dangerous levels of this chemical. Symptoms of exposure to high levels of formaldehyde may include several cancers as well as running or weeping eyes, wheezing, coughing or a breathing-related problem; babies and children who play and crawl on the floor may be in particular risk of dangerous exposure to formaldehyde.
Laminate flooring is a type of flooring that is made to look like real wood â€” and is often significantly less expensive than real wood. For the Chinese-made Lumber Liquidators laminate flooring, the dangerously high levels of formaldehyde are typically found in the resin or glues used to bind the particles together to build the core boards in laminate flooring.
Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen capable of causing cancer in those who are exposed to it. Unfortunately, Lumber Liquidators allegedly improperly labeled its Chinese-made laminate flooring products as being safe and compliant by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), even though there is strong evidence now that it is not safe nor compliant.
According to the 60 Minutes team, they discovered that 30 out of 31 Chinese-made laminated wood samples sold by Lumber Liquidators failed to meet CARB standards.
