Common household building supplies, appliances and products can emit gases called volatile organic compounds, which are detrimental to one’s health.

Products which have organic solvents are paints, varnishes, and wax as well as cleaning, disinfecting, degreasing, and hobby products can have organic chemicals used as ingedients. Organic compounds can be released while using these items and to a lesser extent when they are stored.

 

There are hazardous health effects that emerge from inhaling the organic chemicals. The severity of the symptoms would depend largely on how much of the chemical is in the air, how long it was in the air, how often someone is breathing it in and the body type of the specific person. People who have asthma, respiratory conditions or who are sensitive to chemicals have worsened symptoms. Inhaling low levels of VOCs for a long period of time can cause a greater risk of health problems.

The VOC testing that we provide targets the particular substance to conclude if they are existent and the area that they are occupying. Afterwards, a thorough report of laboratory results and an analysis report by a specialist will be sent to the client.
