Unveiling the Hidden Threat: VOCs in Your Home and How to Combat Them

Much of your life is spent indoors, whether at home or at work. Therefore, clean and healthy indoor air is crucial. You don't want to inadvertently inhale harmful substances with the risk of negative health consequences.

One of these harmful substances that may be present indoors is VOCs. They are completely invisible, which is why they are more dangerous than often assumed. At TELETASK, we conducted a study on VOCs, what they can cause, and why it's better to avoid them.

VOCs: The Unknown and Invisible Danger in Your Home

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that evaporate into the air as gases from certain solids or liquids. They are present in numerous everyday products, such as paint, cleaning agents, furniture, building materials, and even in cosmetics and air fresheners. Although they may not always be immediately detectable, VOCs can pose significant health hazards when present in medium to high concentrations indoors.

The consequences of VOCs

VOCs entail all kinds of negative consequences

  • Firstly, they can cause acute health problems, including irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, or nausea. Individuals with allergies or sensitive respiratory systems will experience even more severe and frequent symptoms as a result.
  • Prolonged exposure to high levels of VOCs can lead to more serious health issues, such as damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system, as well as the development or exacerbation of asthma and other respiratory problems.
  • Additionally, some VOCs contribute to the formation of ozone and other harmful substances in the air, which can worsen indoor air quality. This can be particularly problematic for individuals with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions, as well as for young children, the elderly, and individuals with weakened immune systems.

In our study, we dive deeper into VOCs, their impact, and how you can easily minimise them, with a little help from your TELETASK integrated home automation system.
