Some are quite harmful, others less so. Minimizing our contact with chemicals on a daily basis has proven health benefits. A great deal of chemicals are used in the construction of a modern day home. To remove some of these chemical products from the internal construction of a home can be quite straightforward and can have plenty of health benefits. Removing a lot of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) from inside of the home for example is as simple as selecting the correct paint or cabinetwork. VOC’s have a high vapour pressure at ordinary room temperature which is a result of the chemicals having low boiling points. Harmful molecules are given off into the atmosphere that we then breathe. Formaldehydes which evaporate from paints have a boiling point below -18 degrees Celsius. It’s easy to see that at room temperature a lot of formaldehydes would be given off into the atmosphere.
