Formaldehyde Removal

HomeFormaldehyde Removal

Introducing LiveCoat by Elelaurels

Effective Formaldehyde removal from Japan now in Singapore - with photocatalyst technology.

We use products and treatment imported from Japan, using Japan’s advanced photocatalyst technology which effectively effectively degrades formaldehyde molecules through a process called photocatalysis. Treatments are highly effective in removing the strong smell and traces of formaldehyde. Our products have been tested and certified in Singapore and Japan for effective formaldehyde removal.

Formaldehyde Removal Services Singapore

An environmental purification material that removes odors and bacteria in the air with the power of light. It suppresses unpleasant odors (e.g. cigarette, pet odors, toilets, etc.) while eliminating bacteria and viruses. In addition, it can also be used as an antifouling measure for walls, window glass, and tents. When the photocatalyst absorbs light, it reacts with oxygen and water in the air to generate active oxygen (O2 and OH). Active oxygen has a strong oxidizing power, it converts viruses and odor molecules that comes in contact with it thus, improving the air quality.

Since it removes pollutants in the air, it can be expected to be affective not only for viruses but also for other purposes. The photocatalyst assists the reaction, it will not be consumed even if you continue to use it; thus, the effect will last for a long time. It disinfects and deodorizes with much stronger power than commonly used alcohol, chlorine and ozone. Titanium dioxide, the raw material, is also used in foods as a white coloring agent and is also widely used in foundations and sunscreens because it has the effect of blocking ultraviolet rays.

Dangers of formaldehyde

1. Fertility:

Formaldehyde exposure has been linked to fertility harm in both men and women. In men, it may lead to decreased sperm quality and fertility issues. In women, formaldehyde exposure has been associated with menstrual disorders and pregnancy complications, including low birth weight and spontaneous abortion.

2. Developmental Effects:

Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of formaldehyde due to their smaller size, developing bodies, and higher respiratory rates. Prolonged or repeated exposure to formaldehyde can interfere with the normal development of children’s respiratory, immune, and nervous systems. This can result in increased susceptibility to respiratory infections, allergies, and developmental disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorders.

3. Asthma Exacerbation:

Children with asthma are especially sensitive to formaldehyde exposure. Formaldehyde can trigger asthma attacks and exacerbate respiratory symptoms in children with existing asthma conditions. Prolonged exposure may also increase the risk of developing asthma in children who were previously healthy.


4. Neurobehavioral Effects:

Formaldehyde exposure during childhood has been linked to neurobehavioral problems, including learning disabilities, cognitive impairments, and behavioral disorders. Children exposed to formaldehyde in indoor environments, such as schools and daycare centers, may experience difficulties concentrating, learning, and socializing.

5. Long-term Health Impacts:

Early-life exposure to formaldehyde can have long-term health implications, affecting children’s overall health and well-being into adulthood. Adverse effects may manifest later in life as chronic respiratory conditions, reproductive disorders, and an increased risk of certain cancers, highlighting the importance of minimizing formaldehyde exposure during childhood.

What is Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde is a colorless, strong-smelling gas that is widely used in various industrial processes and household products. It is a naturally occurring organic compound composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Formaldehyde is commonly found in building materials, such as plywood, particleboard, insulation, and carpeting, as well as in adhesives, paints, and certain household cleaners.

In construction and renovation projects, formaldehyde-based materials are often used for their durability and affordability. However, the release of formaldehyde gas from these materials can pose health risks, especially in poorly ventilated spaces. Renovation activities, such as sanding, cutting, or installing formaldehyde-containing products, can increase indoor formaldehyde levels, exposing occupants to potential health hazards.

Exposure to formaldehyde has been associated with a range of health effects, including respiratory irritation, allergic reactions, and even cancer. As a result, it is essential for individuals involved in renovation projects to take precautions to minimize formaldehyde exposure. This may include using products with low formaldehyde emissions, ensuring adequate ventilation during and after renovation activities, and using personal protective equipment, such as masks and gloves, when working with formaldehyde-containing materials.

Where is the source of formaldehyde coming from?

In home renovations in Singapore, formaldehyde is frequently encountered due to the widespread use of building materials containing this compound. Plywood, particleboard, and laminates commonly found in flooring, furniture, and cabinetry often release formaldehyde gas, especially when new or freshly installed.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized formaldehyde as a significant indoor air pollutant, highlighting its adverse health effects. Exposure to elevated levels of formaldehyde indoors, particularly in poorly ventilated spaces, can lead to respiratory irritation, allergic reactions, and long-term health risks such as cancer.

In Singapore, where tropical climates often necessitate air-conditioned interiors, the risk of formaldehyde accumulation can be exacerbated. Renovation activities in homes and commercial spaces frequently involve the use of formaldehyde-containing materials, posing health concerns for occupants and workers alike.
