Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in buildings. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants outside. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Common Contaminants

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
  • Microbial, Yeast, Bacteria
  • Radon
