Indoor Air Pollution Is a Global Issue

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that Americans spend 90% of their time at home, schools, offices, and other buildings. However, people are still at risk of getting exposed to air pollutants in closed spaces.

Indoor air pollutants come from smoke, vapors, mold, and chemicals in paints, furnishings, and cleaning products. These can become even more concentrated with high humidity, hot temperatures, and inadequate ventilation.

Types of Pollutants

Indoor air pollutants include those that penetrate outdoor spaces and other sources unique to the place. Some of these are human activities like cooking, cleaning, burning solid fuels, and smoking.

Vapors from furniture and building/construction materials and equipment, as well as biological contaminants like mold, viruses, and allergens, contribute to the problem.

Examples of Contaminants

Allergens are substances that cause an allergic reaction. They can circulate in the air and remain on carpets and furniture for months.

Asbestos is a human carcinogen and a fibrous material formerly used to make incombustible or fireproof building materials. Disturbing asbestos minerals or asbestos-containing materials can release tiny fibers into the air.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, toxic gas detected in the fumes of cars or trucks, small engines, stoves, lanterns, grills, fireplaces, gas ranges, or furnaces. Proper ventilation or exhaust systems can prevent it from building in the air.

Formaldehyde, a known human carcinogen, is a strong-smelling chemical in pressed wood furniture, wood particle cabinets, flooring, carpets, and fabrics. It can also be a component of some glues, adhesives, paints, and coating products.

Lead is a naturally occurring metal used in various products like gasoline, paint, plumbing pipes, ceramics, solders, batteries, and even cosmetics.

Mold is a microorganism and fungus that thrives in damp places, both indoors and outdoors.

Pesticides are substances used to kill, repel, or control certain forms of invasive and harmful plants or bugs.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and naturally occurring gas from decaying radioactive elements in soils. It can enter indoor spaces through cracks or gaps in buildings. Most exposures occur inside homes, schools, and workplaces.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates radon is responsible for about 21,000 U.S. deaths from lung cancer annually.

Smoke, a byproduct of combustion processes, such as from cigarettes, cookstoves, and wildfires, contains toxic chemicals like formaldehyde and lead.

Your Health Depends on the Air You Breathe

Both short- and long-term exposure to air pollutants can cause various health issues, including cancer, cognitive deficiency, and heart and respiratory diseases. Certain populations may also be affected more than others.

Children, older adults, people with preexisting conditions, Native Americans, and low socioeconomic households are often exposed to higher levels of indoor air pollutants.

Additionally, the World Health Organization estimates 3.8 million people worldwide die every year from illnesses related to the harmful indoor air from dirty cookstoves and fuel.
