Why You Should Choose VOC-Free Cleaning Products

Why You Should Choose VOC-Free Cleaning Products

Are you ready for the dirty truth? Well, you can’t handle the dirty truth… literally!

Imagine going to the grocery store to buy some new cleaning products and find out that they aren’t making your home and its contents as clean as you thought.

Cleaning products that don’t clean? It sounds ridiculous but sadly it is happening.

Why You Should Be Free Of Cleaners With VOCs

Many cleaning products on the market contain volatile organic compounds or VOCs. These are a group of chemicals or gases that are found in both indoor and outdoor air. These air pollutants are released by evaporation at room temperature from products such as paint, wood, air fresheners and building materials.

When indoor levels of VOC increase, that’s when it can become dangerous. The most common sources of VOCs that contribute to harmful levels are vehicle exhaust, cigarette smoke, building materials and (sadly) cleaning products.

You might be asking: Why would I use something that releases harmful chemicals in the air?

And you should be too! Unfortunately, due to rules surrounding labelling, consumers don’t know exactly what is in the cleaning products that they buy. The only way that you can know for sure that the cleaning products you own aren’t releasing these harmful chemicals is to buy VOC-free cleaners.  

The Health Dangers of Excessive VOC Exposure

Exposure to volatile organic compounds most commonly occurs from inhalation and skin contact with products that contain and release VOCs.

Although scientists are unsure of the full extent that exposure to VOCs can have on our health, studies have found that increased exposure to indoor VOCs can affect those with respiratory problems such as asthma and cause reduced lung function. It has been found that short-term exposure can cause:

  • Irritation of the eyes and throat
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness

While long-term VOC exposure can cause prolonged nausea, fatigue, loss of coordination and potential damage to the liver, kidneys and central nervous system.
