Construction and decoration
Countless building and decorating materials can release toxic substances into our homes.
Many of the materials used to build houses, as well as furniture or decorative items, contain toxic substances.
For example, plaster boards or panels used to cover ceilings and walls, as well as insulation materials, can emit various harmful chemicals.
Rugs and carpets contain toxins such as flame retardants, as well as absorbing chemical substances that contain household dust.
Furniture and wood may also contain undesirable compounds, such as toxic preservatives or varnishes that can give off toxins.
