Chemical Contamination Can Enter a Home via 'Vapor Intrusion'

Do you live near a factory, a landfill, a farming operation or a gas station? If you do, you should be aware of the possibility of "vapor intrusion".

Vapor intrusion is a process in which chemical contamination-- which the factory, landfill, etc., caused by disposing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the area soil or groundwater-- converts into a gas (called "vapor") form, which then migrates.

This migrating vapor searches for homes and other structures to enter, and can do so through even the tiniest cracks in basement floors and foundation walls. If it does, then the air that the people inside are breathing may be contaminated.
