What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily items may cause bad indoor air quality in your Fort Wayne residence.

This includes:

  • Substances in [flooring, furniture and drapery 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 residences do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This offers more energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants accumulating indoors.

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