High levels of Light Hydrocarbons in a home with no gas


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

Looking for a possible cause of high levels of light hydrocarbons in my home that was found on air quality testing through Prism Analytical Technologies. Trying to determine if chronic sinus problems, headache, eye irritation, etc. are caused by environmental sources in my home and we are stumped as to the source of the hydrocarbon level. No gas appliances at all (stove, water heater, dryer, washer, etc are all electric). 

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Do you keep propane bottles in the house? (For camping lanterns, stoves, etc)

Does your garage open into your house? (Vehicle exhaust)

Gas welding equipment? 

Bottles of wood finish? 

Oil lamps? 

Maybe those stinky room freshener things that you plug into the wall?
