You might be surprised at what household chemicals are polluting the air inside your home. Take new carpets, for example. They may feel good under your feet, but they can give off chemical vapors and fumes that contaminate your home’s air. The same goes for upholstered furniture and draperies. A PureAir™ air purification system can destroy chemical vapors in your home’s air and make it healthier to breathe.
When inhaled, VOCs can have serious health consequences. As with other types of pollutants, the severity of symptoms depends on the level of exposure and duration of contact.
VOCs are found in a wide variety of household products and materials, including everything from paints and varnishes to cleaning supplies and new carpeting. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined that concentrations of VOCs are greater indoors than outside.
