FEMA ISSUES ABOUT TRAILERS
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR TRAILER OCCUPANTS
If you smell formaldehyde, here are FEMA's tips for how to deal with it.
1. Increase ventilation. You can reduce your exposure to formaldehyde by bringing more outdoor air into your home. Open windows and doors when ever possible.
2. Keep indoor temperatures moderate. As the temperature rises, the effects of formaldehyde may be more noticeable. You can use the air conditioner to keep temperatures relatively low, which will help lower the formaldehyde effects and odors.
3. Lower the humidity. You can decrease the rate at which formaldehyde is released from pressed wood and other products by lowering the humidity in your trailer. Humidity should be maintained at about 40% to 50% relative humidity in the home.
4. Do not smoke inside. Tobacco smoking products produces formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals.
