See These Common Indoor Air Pollutants:Avoid Them


What you breathe should be as important as where you sleep. Your lungs are one of those "critical" organs and should be treated with care. And if the air pollutants can find anything to harm in the lungs, they can move right into the bloodstream and have access to every organ. Like we say on CNB, always maintain a healthy and safe environment. It is the key to a disease-free life.

Here are some common indoor air Pollutants to avoid::
Household products like Formaldehyde, paints and cleaners:  Watch out for benzene, methylene chloride and perchloroethylene. dispose when no longer needed. Buy limited quantities and always heed warning labels.

Stoves, Heaters and Chimneys:  Use exhaust fans over stoves. Adjust burners properly. Have your heating system, chimney and stoves inspected for damage. Repair any damage immediately.

Pesticides: Always follow label instructions. Ventilate after use. Use non-chemical pest control when possible and dispose of pesticides properly.

Do not smoke and do not stay close to a smoker.

Biological contaminants like molds and pollen.


Lead: Don't try and remove lead paint yourself. Hire a professional. Keep areas where children frequent clean.

Carpets and Rugs: Ask the retailer to unroll and air out the carpet in a well-ventilated area before installation. Ask for low-emitting adhesives if adhesives are needed.
- Consider leaving the premises during and immediately after carpet installation. You may wish to schedule the installation when most family members or office workers are out.
- Be sure the retailer requires the installer to follow the Carpet and Rug Institute's installation guidelines.
- Open doors and windows. Increasing the amount of fresh air in the home will reduce exposure to most chemicals released from carpet. During and after installation, use window fans, room air conditioners, or other mechanical ventilation equipment you may have installed in your house, to exhaust fumes to the outdoors. Keep them running for 48 to 72 hours after the new carpet is installed.
