Exposure to residential emissions have previously been associated with adverse effects on wellness and productivity of the building occupants. This systematic mapping study was conducted with an aim to visually map together the associations between multiple findings published in the field of indoor studies in the past fifteen years and identify gap areas for future research. Results of the present study showed associations of high magnitude between indoor emissions of several VOCs and SVOCs. The health risk that has been most associated with exposure to such indoor emissions, according the reviewed literature, was found to be development of toxicity. The available literature lacks sufficient human biomonitoring studies and toxicological data. This finding of the present study contributes a fair deal of knowledge to the research field and identifies the required direction for research work in future.
