What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may contribute to inferior indoor air quality in your Clearwater residence.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpet, furniture and window treatments that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, newer homes don’t breathe the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and exterior air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants building up indoors.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange dirty indoor air for fresher outdoor air without giving up energy savings.
