What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Fort Wayne residence.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This gives better energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause particles accumulating indoors.

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