What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may create inferior indoor air quality in your La Porte house.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [flooring, furniture and drapery that give off fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This offers increased energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create contaminants accumulating indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems swap out polluted indoor air for cleaner outdoor air without giving up energy savings.
