Indoor air quality doesn’t exclude RVs, mobile homes & travel trailers.

Indoor air quality isn’t restricted to houses and buildings. A problem with RVs, mobile homes, and travel trailers is formaldehyde off-gassing from building materials, furnishings and fabrics.

Exposure to formaldehyde can cause symptoms such as sore throat, cough, scratchy eyes, and nosebleeds. While the severity of symptoms varies from person to person, the most worrisome fact is that formaldehyde is a known carcinogenic, causing cancer of the nose and throat.

Protect yourself from formaldehyde exposure by keeping the temperature inside at the lowest comfortable setting, frequently opening windows, and spend as much time outdoors in fresh air as possible. This is especially important for families with children, elderly people or those with chronic diseases such as asthma as the formaldehyde would affect them greater.
