What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may cause bad indoor air quality in your Windsor home.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, modern homes don’t breathe the way older residences do. Tight 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 create particles accumulating indoors.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange dirty indoor air for fresher outdoor air without compromising energy savings.
