Proper ventilation also expels harmful chemicals, known as VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), which may be released into the air from paint, adhesives, and other building materials.

To reduce the level of VOCs in your home, use only products that are labeled to contain low or no VOCs. Watch this video to find out more.
