Particleboard is a common material used in furniture and to build walls, floors and cabinets inside our houses. It’s a wood material that’s made with compressed wood chips and resin, with adhesives mixed in to create a solid material that can act like wood. The problem? Most particleboard can offset gasses from chemicals inside like formaldehyde, which can create an unhealthy home environment. Since ripping out everything made of particleboard isn’t a green or economical option, one way to prevent unhealthy fumes is to use a water-based, nontoxic wood sealer. Just adding a coat to walls, cabinets and other particleboard products can make it impenetrable and undetectable.
