D&M Home Inspections

Attached garages are a haven for all kinds of toxic activity. Consider what you store in the garage. Your car leaks all manner of fluids from gas to transmission fluid, grease, oil, power steering fluid, and anti-freeze.

In this garage there is a snow blower, lawnmower, hedge trimmer, chainsaw, and a weed whacker; all gas powered and all leaking just a little. These items are also covered with moldy, pesticide infused grass and yard dirt.

Never store gas or other flammables in an attached garage! Negative pressure in the home can draw contaminated air from the garage into the living space.
