About ToxicTrailers.com

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.

Safe Seal has no data to support claims?

I tested Safe Seal on a couple of night stands, and it made no difference at all in formaldehyde emission.  Richard contacted the manufacture for test data.  After some waffling, the company admitted they have no data to support their claims that Safe Seal reduces formaldehyde emission.
Have the teacher contact me directly if she wants us to walk her through testing.  Perhaps we can identify sources and target specific changes that would help.  For starters, keep the windows open.
