Formaldehyde tester is often used for indoor formaldehyde pollution detection. Formaldehyde is an important cause of indoor decoration pollution. So what are the specific hazards of formaldehyde?
The harm of formaldehyde to the human body
- Formaldehyde is a protoplasmic toxic substance. Formaldehyde is a substance that has an irritating effect on the skin and mucous membranes. Formaldehyde can be combined with proteins, which can cause severe respiratory tract irritation and edema, eye irritation, and headaches.
- Formaldehyde direct contact with formaldehyde can cause allergic dermatitis, stains, and necrosis. Inhalation of high concentrations of formaldehyde can cause bronchial asthma.
- Mutagenicity High-concentration formaldehyde is also a genotoxic substance, which can cause nasopharyngeal tumors, leukemia, and fetal chromosomal abnormalities.
- The prominent manifestations are headache, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, chest tightness, eye pain, tearing, sore throat, poor appetite, palpitations, insomnia, weight loss, memory loss, autonomic disorders, etc. Long-term inhalation of pregnant women can cause pregnancy syndrome, fetal malformations, and even death, menstrual disorders in women, and decreased intelligence in children.

Formaldehyde tester is used in gas storage leakage monitoring, drug factory, food factory, hospital gas disinfection residue detection, electrostatic precipitator, gas generator, air purifier, gas leakage, indoor air gas detection scene.
How to reduce indoor formaldehyde concentration
Ventilation can be used to eliminate decoration pollution. Reduce the harmful substances in the indoor air and reduce the harm of harmful substances to the human body. In winter, the doors and windows are closed tightly, preventing the air from indoor and outdoor, which leads to the increase of formaldehyde content in indoor air.
An air purifier can purify formaldehyde. In a newly renovated house, it is best to install an air purifier. This can speed up the decomposition rate of formaldehyde. Moreover, houses with high formaldehyde content cannot be accommodated. It is best to ventilate for more than 3 months. Because excessive inhalation of formaldehyde can cause cancer.
