VOC is short for Volatile Organic Compounds. This means that there are organic compounds that with enough vapor pressure under normal conditions will enter the atmosphere by vaporizing. Methane is one of the most common VOC. Other common VOC's are gasoline, paint thinners, and dry cleaning solvents. Solvents that are commonly used in wood preservatives, sealing and finishing interiors of homes and business such as paint, varnishes, plastics carpet backings, and cosmetics produce VOC's.
How VOCs affect our environment
When components oxidize and begin to break down and products like these are used inside homes and buildings, vapors of VOC escape into the air contributing to the outdoor and indoor air pollution. VOCs inside homes and buildings are 2 to 5 times greater than outdoor air pollution according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
What is being done?
With many consumers especially with allergies for example have helped advance changes and attitudes about manufacturers of products to reduce the number of VOCs. States like US, California has been the forefront requiring significantly lower levels of VOC in products. We at Austin Hardwood Flooring Inc. are proud to introduce the 0% VOC wood floor solution.
