VOC – Volatile Organic Compound

Volatile organic compounds are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at ordinary, room-temperature conditions. VOCs are numerous. Some include cleaning supplies, pesticides, paints, building material and furnishings; even office equipment such as copiers and printers. They include both human-made and naturally occurring chemical compounds and some can cause harm to the environment or be dangerous to your health.  VOC’s are consistently higher indoors than outdoors.
