Indoor air pollutants in a home are relatively unavoidable. Whether coming from your furry family members, building materials, or into the home via outdoor sources, chances are your home has some level of contamination. Some pollutants, like dander and dust may have minor acute reactions like sneezing or an itchy throat. However, pollutants like radon and asbestos can have more severe reproductions if not identified and remediated.
Redfin has created a helpful guide that goes into detail about the most common indoor air pollutants. Each section offers a brief explanation of the causes, the identification process, and even the symptoms of exposure. While some homes will have more possible pollutants listed than others, chances are all homes will have some. Especially items like dust and naturally occurring radon gas.
