VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) – products in the home and office that off-gas and cause the occupants to have more than allergic symptoms. These symptoms usually range from Headaches to Nausea and Vomiting. Testing for VOC is really easy and adds another tool to the Inspectors arsenal of products to use at NO ADDITIONAL expense for equipment to the inspector.
