There are many causes of indoor air pollution, from pet dander to mold and mildew to dangerous toxins like asbestos, formaldehyde and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB). Indoor air pollution may result in many side effects from mild discomfort to more serious repercussions such as asthma, other respiratory diseases, and even cancer.
The following toxins are some of the most common pollutants that can decrease your home’s indoor air quality:
- Mold and mildew
- Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB)
- Tobacco smoke
- Paints and varnishes
- Carbon monoxide
- Volatile organic compounds
- Residential wood burning
Keeping your home well-ventilated and tackling projects that require toxic chemicals like paint, pesticides or varnishes outside of the home are simple ways to reduce indoor air pollution. Decreasing your home’s humidity level will help eliminate mites and mildew and cleaning regularly will help prevent biological contaminants such as pet dander.
