VOCs and indoor air quality

Indoor air quality can play a significant role in health, especially for individuals who spend a substantial amount of time indoors – at home or at work.  While indoor air quality may be impacted by outdoor air, most indoor air pollutants are generated or released indoors.

Indoor air recommendations for the general public may differ from occupational recommendations for professionals because sources of indoor air pollutants, level of exposures, and duration of exposures typically differ.
