Common Types of Indoor Pollutants
From pet hair to toxic mold, there can be any number of hazardous pathogens in your home. While these can certainly pose a threat to your health, the real danger lies with the more invisible forms of indoor pollution, which can be difficult to detect with the naked eye.
Indoor pollution can accumulate wherever there are particle and gas emissions, and they usually originate from outdated heating and air conditioning systems. High temperature levels and recurring humidity can also heighten the effects of indoor air pollution, making your air feel muggy and uncomfortable even when the weather outside is mild.
The most common indoor pollutants include:
- Carbon monoxide
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
- Nitrogen dioxide
- Paints and varnishes
- Secondhand smoke
- Carbon dioxide
While many of these indoor pollutants are harmless at low levels, poor indoor ventilation can lead to a higher concentration of toxins in the air, and ultimately cause serious health problems. You may develop painful conditions such as respiratory tract infections, asthma, and lung cancer after living with subpar indoor quality for a long period of time.
