What causes indoor air pollution?

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

This includes:

  • Compounds in [carpeting, 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 houses do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This offers increased energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants increasing indoors.

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