Abstract

Background and Aims: The Total Volatile Organic Compound (TVOC) is the value of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in an air sample. This is one of the gases present indoor that causes a serious effect on the people. In this paper, its assessment was carried out indoor in Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria.

Methods: A sensor with a detection technology was used for the assessment in thirty-two (32) indoor environments in Akure using the manufacture’s specifications and results were compared with Air Quality Index (AQI) scoring system.

Results: The results obtained were in the range of 0.001-0.362 (mg/m3). The results due to AQI depicted ‘Good’ and ‘Average’

Conclusions: The results obtained in this study look ‘good’ but efforts should be geared towards constant monitoring and assessment.
