People who use the garage as a workshop and keep it sealed up in winter may be exposing themselves to a toxic stew of fumes from paints, fertilizers, pesticides, and stored gasoline — not to mention potential carbon monoxide from car exhaust and that open-combustion water heater that hasn’t been serviced in years.
