The sensor we use for monitoring air quality is called “VOC sensor” (volatile organic compounds), which is used to detect the presence of acetone, heptane, and many other metabolic products in human breath. It also detects formaldehyde, cooking odors, human bio effluents, outdoor pollutants, paint and lacquers, cleaning supplies, and toxins. The mixed gases/VOCs are often released into a facility's air from building materials, furnishings, office equipment, and adhesive.
What our VOC sensor detects is not only what it feels in the air but also what it smells. So, when it shows that air quality is poor, this might be the result of many different factors. You can try verifying the reasons by determining if there is any smell of cooking or cleaning. If there is, then there should be no harm to a human’s health.
