What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may cause bad indoor air quality in your Wheeling residence.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This gives increased energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles building up inside.

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