What are the sources of VOCs?
VOCs are emitted by many products. Examples include: paints and lacquers, paint strippers, carpet, flooring, plywood, particleboard, adhesives, cabinets, countertops, insulation, paneling and other building products.
What are the health effects?
Several recent studies suggest that domestic exposure to formaldehyde (a commonly occurring VOC) significantly increases the risk of asthma in young children. Key signs or symptoms associated with exposure to VOCs include nausea, vomiting, nose bleeds, eye irritation, nose and throat discomfort, headache, fatigue, dizziness, allergic skin reaction and dyspnea (shortness of breath).
