- 17 percent of allergy sufferers do so because of fungi and dust in air ducts
- An average six-room house gathers 40 pounds of dust a year

The causes of indoor air pollution stem from many sources and can vary from building to building, and even from room to room. Carbon monoxide from a malfunctioning furnace, odors from the kitchen and dust mite feces in your air duct system are but a few examples how pollutants can vary between occupied areas. You can identify some of these pollutants through visual inspection; you can pinpoint others through indoor air quality testing.
