Furniture, flooring, or fabrics, especially new items, might emit formaldehyde when they’re new, but this process, called outgassing, decreases over time. It takes a couple of years for it to completely be gone as it breaks down naturally by transforming into Carbon Dioxide. Something to note is that there is formaldehyde in just about anything.

- Household products such as glues, permanent press fabrics, paints and coatings, lacquers and finishes, and paper products;
- Preservatives used in some medicines, cosmetics and other consumer products such as dishwashing liquids and fabric softeners; and
