VOCs are airborne compounds that originate from housekeeping, maintenance, and building products made with organic chemicals. These compounds are released not only from products that are being used, but also from products that are in storage.
In sufficient quantities, VOCs can cause eye, nose, and throat irritations, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders, memory impairment; some are known to cause cancer in animals; some are suspected of causing, or are known to cause, cancer in humans. At present, not much is known about what health effects occur at the levels of VOCs typically found in public and commercial buildings.
