Residential attached garage intervention study: H129-71/2017E-PDF


"Homes with attached garages may have higher levels of air pollutants that can affect health, such as benzene and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These pollutants come from vehicles or from items stored in garages, like lawnmowers, snow blowers, or chemical products (fuels, cleaners, solvents, paints) and can enter homes through doors or cracks in the wall. Homes with attached garages are common in Canada. A 2007 survey conducted by Natural Resources Canada found that 3.5 million dwellings in Canada had an attached garage."--p. [1].
