You might think that your garage is safe from air pollutants. As you open the garage door you allow fresh air to enter and polluted air to exit. Although this is true, your garage can still be a heavily polluted environment. The number of volatile organic compounds (and their off-gases) that may be present can be quite high. Cleaning products, paints, chemicals and many more liquids can produce harmful off gases that pollute your air.
Equipment and your vehicle produce carbon monoxide as they burn fossil fuels and mold growth is a very real possibility water is always present.
How to Improve Your Garage Air Quality
To keep your garage air safe, be sure to allow as much fresh air to enter when possible and routinely check cleaning supplies, chemical and paint lids and ensure that they are tight. Remove water as quickly as possible and when your clean, keep doors or windows open when using chemicals.
