Families and communities who have been affected by wildfires & toxic smoke left behind in their homes are still at a major risk due to small toxic particles called VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). In this article we will break down everything you need to know about these harmful smoke toxins & how our air purifying paint technology can help to mitigate these toxins, provide cleaner quality air in your home and keep your family safe.
What are Volatile Organic Compounds?
When homes are impacted by wildfires & the wildfire smoke one of the biggest impacts aside from the fire damage is the harmful toxins left behind by the fire smoke.
These harmful chemicals are called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) which are gases emitted and created in fire plumes. These small particles can deposit on walls, carpets, rugs, drapes and other surfaces, and will likely keep off-gassing for a long time (weeks to months), causing harmful health effects if untreated.
Not all VOC’s are toxic but some of the compounds that are toxic include Dioxins, Benzene, Formaldehyde & PAHs. According to cancer.org these harmful toxins left untreated can cause long term and short-term effects like dizziness, headaches, vomiting, stomach irritation and even cancer. https://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancer-causes/benzene.html
