What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your West Palm Beach house.

This includes:

  • Chemicals 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 residences do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outdoor air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants building up inside your home.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems replace dirty inside air for cleaner outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
