These substances are often found in materials and objetcs as drywalls, thermostatic switches and paint.

Deleterious substances generally feared in the building industry are acrylonitrile, arsenic, asbestos, benzene, coke oven emissions, ethylene oxide, isocyanates, lead, mercury, silica, vinyl chloride, formaldehyde emanations from UFFI, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), volatile organic compounds (VOC), spores/molds and radon.

In the residential sector, the most common are asbestos (insulation and drywalls), mercury (in thermostatic switches, tube lighting), lead (paint and plumbing welding), silica (mortars, plaster and stone), urea formaldehyde insulating foam (thermal insulation), radon (ambient air), spores and mildew (ambient air).
