Common Types of
Airborne Contaminants

Whether you are indoors or outdoors, contaminated air is all around you. It’s important to understand what they are and how they can negatively impact your health.


Dust Mites

Dust mites are microscopic bugs that are commonly found in your home and are one of the most common causes of year-round allergies.


Dust particles are comprised of things like airborne environmental dust, pet dander, pollen, paint and construction material particles, and even cigarette smoke.


Mold spores are found in the air, particularly in damp or humid environments.

Pet Dander

Pet dander is composed of microscopic pieces of skin shed by animals with fur and feathers, which becomes airborne or embedded in furniture or fabrics.


Viruses are microscopic parasites that are typically smaller than bacteria and several, like rhinovirus or flu, can spread through the air.


Tree and grass pollens are naturally produced to become airborne and contribute to the seasonal allergies experienced by more thanone billion people worldwide each year.


PM2.5 refers to particulate matter in the air that is 2.5 microns, and smaller– so small that the particles can make their way through the nasal passage into the respiratory system. PM2.5 has been increasingly linked to long-term health problems, including respiratory diseases and cancer.

Air Pollution

Air pollution exists both outdoors – primarily from the burning of fossil fuels as well as other noxious gases and ozone, as well as indoors – caused by gases, building materials and cleaning products, and a range of indoor allergens.
