Carbon monoxide in close quarters? That’s a conventional garage.
Vehicle emissions in a closed room are dangerous, of course. Clearly this is a concern for anyone who likes to spend time in the garage – but also even for those who don’t.
Every time you open the door to your attached garage, pollutants can float in. Even when the door is closed, cracks in the joints and walls can let carcinogens and carbon monoxide leak indoors throughout the day. If you happen to have low indoor air pressure, your home can actually suck contaminants inside continuously.
Combustion-related impurities don’t take long to impact your health, says the EPA, and this can lead to long-term problems – even when breathed in small amounts.
At Clarum, we believe the air you breathe should be clean, and that goes for your entire home – from the kitchen, to the sitting room, to the garage.
In order to achieve clean air in the garage, EngineeringToolbox.com advises that the air should be regularly cycled out through the day. At Clarum, this is just one piece of our three-part approach:
Whether you’re making breakfast, reading a book, or getting into your car, we make sure you’re breathing clean.
