7 Common Indoor Air Pollutants

The first step to keeping your home and family safe from indoor air pollution is learning more about the pollutants/contaminants. Here are the 7 common indoor air pollutants:

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO)

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, invisible gas. It’s produced by the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels.

  • Radon

Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that is found everywhere at low levels. It is made naturally as the uranium in the earth breaks down.

  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)

Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) is a common oxide of nitrogen. It is a toxic and corrosive gas.
Please note that nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is different from nitrous oxide (N2O), an oxide of nitrogen that is medically useful when administered by trained professionals, such as dentists.

  • Secondhand Smoke

Secondhand smoke, also called environmental tobacco smoke, comes from incompletely burned tobacco products. According to the Environmental Assistance and Protection Department of Forsyth County, secondhand smoke contains over 4,700 chemical ingredients.

  • Lead Particles

Lead is a natural, soft metal that is very toxic if consumed. Lead was widely used in house paint until it was banned in 1978. Lead particles and dust can become airborne, leading to dangerous indoor air pollution.

  • Asbestos

Asbestos is the name used for a group of minerals found naturally all over the world. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency declared asbestos unsafe in 1971, listing it as a hazardous air pollutant. Although asbestos is not hazardous when intact, disturbing asbestos fibers causes them to become airborne, where they could potentially enter the lungs.

  • Mold

Molds are types of fungi that grow indoors and outdoors. Some types of mold are harmless, while others are dangerous.
