Children's Furniture

Furniture made of veneers that cover pressed wood products (particleboard, fibreboard) can give off volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Choose low-VOC products for your home. Ventilate your home regularly, especially with new furniture, or during and after painting.

Although VOC levels will drop significantly just weeks after paint dries, the VOCs from pressed wood products can last longer. It may help to seal exposed surfaces of particleboard or fibreboard.

If possible, consider purchasing furniture made of solid wood.
