What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your Clearwater residence.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpet, furniture and drapery 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 outside air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants building up indoors.

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