Warmer weather usually means small renovation projects around the house that involve paint, varnish and other adhesives. When shopping for these items at the hardware store, look for ones that emit zero or very low volatile organic compounds (VOC) into the air. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, these common home renovation items are the second-largest source of VOC emissions among consumer and commercial products. Choosing zero- and low-VOC options helps keep your home a healthy place to live.
