St. Louis FAQ on IAQ (Indoor Air Quality)

What is the cause of poor IAQ?

According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), inadequate ventilation is the primary cause of indoor air pollution in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not ventilating indoor air pollutants out of the home.

What are the sources of indoor air pollution?

There are many, including combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products; building materials and furnishings as diverse as deteriorated, asbestos-containing insulation, wet or damp carpet, and cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products; products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies; central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices; and outdoor sources such as radon, pesticides, and outdoor air pollution.
