There are some instances when you and your family are exposed to more pollutants and toxins inside your home than outside. Levels of air pollution inside the home can be two to five times higher (and occasionally 100 times higher) than outdoor levels. Your indoor air quality depends on many factors inside your home and it is important to learn about the potential sources of indoor air pollution in order to minimize the damaging effects.

The most common pollutants are radon, combustion products, biologicals (molds, pet dander, pollen), volatile organic compounds, lead dust and asbestos. Poor indoor air quality in your home can lead to problems like asthma, allergies, lung disease, high levels of toxicity and more. Read on for more information about the causes of indoor air pollutants and what you can do to improve your indoor air quality.
