Indoor Air Pollution Due to Common Household Products

Air pollution is a frequent topic of conversation. While the topic of outdoor air pollution is of the utmost importance, indoor air pollution is often overlooked. Indoor pollution levels in your Melbourne, Florida home can be two to five times higher than outdoor pollution levels. The most significant contributors to indoor air pollution and, consequently, poor indoor air quality are the household products that you may use on a daily basis.

There are numerous household items that contribute to indoor air pollution. Consider everything from paint to cleaning supplies to personal care items (like hair spray and deodorant for example). These items contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are microscopic gases emitted by certain liquids and solids. VOCs consist of a number of chemicals that can cause short- and long-term illness.
