While the chemicals emitted by cleaning products have the potential to affect everyone, children are at a higher risk because they spend most of their time indoors. Additionally, children’s organs and respiratory, immune and neurological systems are still developing and they have a lower body weight, therefore relative to their size, they breathe a greater volume of air than adults.
