Did you know the air inside your home is often more polluted than the air outside? Since most people spend about 90 percent of their time inside their homes, this is especially concerning for families with children or elderly residents. For many New Jersey residents, there might be more health risks inside than outside!

Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Indoor pollution sources release gasses or particles into the air in our homes. Poor ventilation, indoor smoking, and even common household cleaning products can all be sources of indoor air pollutants.
Some common indoor air pollutants include:
- Carbon monoxide
- Pet dander
- And much more
Some of the sources of these pollutants you wouldn’t even expect! A few sources of air pollution include:
- Tobacco products
- Building materials
- Pressed wood
- Cleaning products
- Personal care products
- HVAC systems
- Gas from an oven or furnace
- And more
Stagnant, wet areas can also produce the indoor air pollutant mold. If too little outdoor air enters a home the pollutants can build up to a point that it poses a health hazard. Luckily for you, there are air filtrations and purification systems that can be installed that regularly clean and filter the air you’re breathing.
