Respiratory, neurological and carcinogenic effects have been associated with indoor exposure to volatile organic compounds. Reduction of indoor pollution, especially in children, has been identified as a priority in the Sixth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health. In Luxembourg, ad hoc investigations in schools and day-care facilities are carried out following health complaints. The aim of this study is to describe the distributions of benzene, toluene and formaldehyde in 18 school facilities during the period 2014 and 2019. The P75 for formaldehyde was exceeding the AGÖF guidance values. According to the literature, this could represent a risk for children's health.
