Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are hazardous chemicals that are released into the air by everyday things. Being volatile, means these chemicals evaporate easily and release into the air where they can remain long after the source is removed from the space. Many VOCs are cancer-causing and can lead to other health concerns if someone is exposed to them for an extended period of time. As a result of viruses such as the seasonal flu and COVID-19, many people have increased their sanitization efforts, but many of these chemical cleaners release harmful VOCs into the air. This means that as they eliminate one hazard, they may be introducing another. There are hundreds of VOCs recognized by the EPA. The source of VOCs can be traced back to everyday things such as cleaners/disinfectants, building materials, air fresheners, personal care products, furniture, glues, tobacco smoke, wood burning stoves, and printers/copiers, just to name a few. Some health effects caused by VOCs are eye/nose/throat irritation, headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, loss of coordination, cancer, and damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system.
