What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Indianapolis home.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [flooring, furniture and drapes that let off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outdoor air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger contaminants accumulating indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange contaminated indoor air for fresher outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
