What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may create bad indoor air quality in your Wheeling residence.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [flooring, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and exterior air out. This gives increased energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants building up inside.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange dirty inside air for more breathable outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
