What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily items may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your Houston house.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpet, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and exterior air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger contaminants accumulating indoors.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange contaminated indoor air for fresher outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
