Volatile Organic Compounds- as the name says these are those harmful compounds which are emitted in the form of gases which are harmful for the well being of the humans. This makes it a prime concern to eliminate the use of such products which emit VOC’s and improve the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Some examples of such products are paints, chemicals etc.
Harmful Effects of VOC
- Asthma attacks
- Respiratory irritation
- Can lead to more serious health concerns
- Absorbed in porous materials
So far you would have understood the harm these compounds are causing to are life and the importance to get over with it soon for a healthy life style.
Though there are many products available in the market free from VOC and one such product is High Density Polyethylene (HPDE) which has become very popular these days and is being used widely in sustainable building industry.
