What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your West Palm Beach residence.

This includes:

  • Substances in [flooring, furniture and drapes that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outdoor air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants building up inside.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems swap out dirty interior air for fresher outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
