What are Volatile Organic Compounds?
Indoor air pollution and volatile organic compounds are chemicals that are airborne and are commonly found in homes, offices, schools, and various other indoor areas where people gather. Volatile organic compounds, also known as VOC’s, are contracted by humans through inhalation. VOC’s can be caused form cooking, cleaning, home renovations, printing, and through consumer products. VOC’s can be found in various different items as well including bedding, paint, glues, cleaning products, electronic equipment, and building materials. Some very common VOC’s are formaldehyde, Decane, Isopentane, and Vinyl chloride.
