Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gases from a wide range of common products, including the materials, adhesives, and finishes in many flooring materials. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors.
