ToxicTrailers.com was launched after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when the government spent more than $2 billion on FEMA trailers with high levels of formaldehyde that sickened thousands of people. The FEMA trailer tragedy exposed what is a widespread problem in RVs, mobile homes, modular buildings and even conventional buildings that use pressed wood products. Unfortunately, as we approach the tenth anniversary of Katrina, formaldehyde regulations are not being enforced in the U.S., and people's health is at risk. If you are having burning eyes, congestion, sore throat, coughing, breathing difficulties, frequent sinus infections or rashes, and difficulties concentrating, you may have a formaldehyde problem.

Arizona woman need toxic's attorney!
I had a licensed roofer do shoddy work and my ceiling fell in during a huge rainstorm. They came in and took down the drywall and insulation, didn’t throw out the carpet or pad or furniture that was soaked and sprayed Microban all over the rafters that were exposed and had not sealed off the vents to the rest of the home. The overspray went everywhere. After 3 months I got sick with sinus congestion, headaches, ears that felt full and stuffy and after 3 ENT’s, my general practitioner, numerous cat scans and brain scans 2 allergists and 2 sinus and ear doctors at the Mayo Clinic (all didn’t know what was wrong), I moved out of the home and got better within 2 weeks. My shi-tzu came down with bone cancer and was paralyzed shortly after moving out. He later began to walk again after a course of prednisone and fluconasol. Whenever I would go back into the home, my symptoms would return. I had a lab test for VOC’s and formaldehyde is high, toluene and benzene is high, fluorinated hydro carbons are 10 times greater than normal and there isn’t a law firm in Phoenix that will take my case because they know nothing about toxic exposure. If you are familiar with this story, please help me.
