Most pollutants found inside of a house effect only the residents of dwelling, such as asbestos, lead-based paint, etc. Greenhouse gases are known to be released from spray canisters though. Improper disposal of cleaning agents, batteries, etc. can also lead to water pollution.
Indoor air pollution is actually a major problem — the California Air Resources Board estimates that indoor air pollutant levels are 25-62% greater than outside levels and can pose serious health problems. Some common causes of indoor pollution are tobacco smoke, cooking and heating appliances, and vapors from building materials, paints, furniture, etc. Radon is a natural radioactive gas released from the earth that can be found concentrated in some basements in the US. Poor ventilation can make the problem worse by not circulating enough outdoor air to dilute harmful indoor pollution.
All homes built before 1978 are likely to contain some lead based paint. When this paint deteriorates or chips in any way it creates lead dust. This lead dust can then spread into the air where it is breathed by people and can cause a decrease in IQ, so always make sure your home is freshly painted and clean.
