||Investigation of potential causes of discomfort and illness in workers in various non-industrial situations. Formaldehyde was detected in 4 office and commercial establishments which had poor ventilation. Concentrations measured ranged from 0.01 to 1.01ppm. Sources of formaldehyde were urea-formaldehyde foam, particle board, plywood subflooring and furniture. Sealing of these sources and increased fresh air supply achieved substantial reduction in discomfort.
