What Causes Low Indoor Air Quality in West Palm Beach?

Indoor air pollution usually develops from a combination of factors. While you can detect some through sight or smell, most require special equipment for detection. Common causes include:

  • Tobacco smoke

  • Chemicals from furnishings, carpets or plastics

  • Car exhaust, if an attached garage is present

  • Toxic gases from combustion (fireplaces, furnaces, stoves)

  • Dust mites, pet dander, mold, mildew, pollen, and bacteria

  • Household chemicals

  • Asbestos

  • Dust, dirt and other debris within the ductwork

Each of these elements can be removed individually if you know it is there. But when more than one element exists, they have a multiplying negative effect on your health. Adding high humidity to the mix makes the problem becomes even worse.
