What are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)?

VOCs are carbon-based chemicals that can form vapors at room temperature. VOCs, including most common solvents, are easily evaporated into our homes' air and come from two predominant sources:

  1. synthetic materials like particleboard, foams and plastics, that are made with VOCs, and
  2. the use of household products that contain VOCs as ingredients.
