With someone suffering from allergies, asthma and chemical sensitivities, formaldehyde release can be extremely dangerous and trigger may reactions. My company is the North American exclusive importer of a test system from Japan that can pinpoint the exact surface in a home that is releasing formaldehyde. The Formaldehyde Release Attenuation Test (FRAT) saves hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars by eliminating the "process of elimination" method of trying to remediate from formaldehyde exposure.

Today's episode is a recap of a FRAT test I performed in a clients home this week. While the information was fresh in my mind, I felt it important to share with everyone. I also hope that one of our listeners has the resources to help us get this testing system into the hands of professionals around the country. So, its a mini plea for assistance.
