According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), vapor intrusion occurs when there is a “migration of vapor-forming chemicals from any subsurface source into an overlying building.” This means that chemicals located in soil, groundwater, sewers, or other underground sources can seep into indoor buildings via cracks in the foundation or other openings to the indoor air.
