Low-or-No-VOC Products

Volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) are emitted as gases from certain materials. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short and/or long term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors than outdoors. It is for this reason that Health-E Community uses low- or no-VOC products.

Thousands of products emit VOCs including paints, cleaning supplies, carpet, fabrics, glues, and building materials. However, manufacturing techniques have allowed for the development of low- and no-VOC products that release no, or minimal VOC pollutants, and are virtually odor free.

Health-E Community Enterprises of Virginia, Inc. avidly researches the building materials used in the construction of its homes to ensure low- or no-VOC products are being used whenever possible. Some of the low- or no-VOC products used in the construction of the homes are the interior and exterior paints, the cabinets and countertops, all chalking and air sealing materials, and the carpet and carpet pad. Enhanced indoor air quality is of the utmost importance at Health-E Community.
