What Are VOCs

By FAF Staff Writer, (253 words) Posted in Green Flooring on June 29, 2010
There are (73) comments permalink

We have written a lot about VOCs on FindAnyFloor.com but with the recent oil spill in the Gulf, VOCs are becoming an everyday topic on many news reports. VOCs are volatile organic compounds and while the word organic is usually associated with a healthy and non-toxic product, VOCs are anything but healthy and are in fact very toxic.

You can find VOCs in flooring and floor related materials as well as dry cleaning solvents, paint thinners and of course gasoline. VOCs are known to be cancer causing and are extremely hazardous to one's health. These dangerous compounds can cause headaches, coughing, asthma attack, fatigue and pneumonia. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been able to prove that VOCs can be 2 to 5 times more prominent in indoor air than fresh outdoor air. This is why it's important to take precautions when installing flooring that contains VOCs.

Always look for flooring that has the lowest lever of VOCs. GREENGUARD certifies products for meeting or exceeding indoor air quality standards and provides a list of flooring and other products that meet their standards.

Formaldehyde is a chemical compound which is still used in flooring products and materials such as glues, adhesives and finishes. Make sure when you are buying flooring, you ask about the use of formaldehyde in the product. Bamboo for instance is a green flooring material but if formaldehyde is used in the adhesive or finish, the product is no longer green. Ask questions and do your homework. This will help you keep the VOCs in your home to a minimum.
