VOCs: what can I do to reduce VOCs?
Harmful VOCs can cause health effects in both the short and long term. Health effects vary from minor eye, nose and throat irritations to more serious ailments, depending on the level of exposure to a particular chemical. It is important also to note that VOC sensors also simply detect chemicals associated with human or animal presence. So although some VOCs are not always bad for your health, they are important to monitor if consistently high and to experiment with ventilation.
