Something In The Air: Carbon Monoxide
Resulting from incomplete combustion, harmful carbon monoxide is produced instead of carbon dioxide. Even though it is mainly found outdoor where there are heavy traffic, it can get into the building through windows or outdoor air intake through ventilation system. Carbon monoxide can accumulate indoor if the ventilation system is inadequate, leading to health problems.
