As efforts to reduce air pollution from combustion continue to drive down SOx and NOx from smoke stacks and tailpipes, experts are turning their attention to other sources that are contributing a larger proportion of the mix than originally thought, specifically VOCs emitted from household products.
We know products such as paint, detergents, cleaning products, glues, and cosmetics all contribute to indoor air pollution. PPG and Sherwin Williams, among others, have developed low- and zero-VOC paints, but what else out there would have the most impact for reducing indoor air pollution?
Are there any particularly notorious emitters from the inventory of everyday household items? If you were to rank the top 3-5 emitters from average household garages/bathrooms/kitchens, what would top the lists?
