What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Elkhart residence.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpet, furniture and drapery that emit fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t have fresh air the way older residences do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outdoor air out. This offers increased energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles accumulating indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange polluted interior air for fresher exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
