Chemicals called volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be found in building supplies and household goods, produce toxic gases when heated. Chemicals can leak an odor into the surroundings during a process known as “off-gassing.” Strongly scented things typically pose a greater health risk, but unscented items aren’t necessarily healthy either. VOCs can release gas either temporarily or over a period of years. The danger of exposure to high pollutant levels and a range of short- and long-term health impacts may increase when using products with a high VOC content.
