This article presents problem of exposure to chemical compounds in indoor air. Harmful chemical compounds are emitted from various furnishings sources and finishing materials such as: wall and floor finishing materials, furniture. The main source of these compounds can be buildings, especially materials used to build them, such as isolations, thermal buildings materials. Additional source of chemical compounds can be office equipment in office rooms, such as laser printers, photocopiers. Structure of different chemical compounds in indoor air can possibly have influence on malaise and human health.
