What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common products may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Belleville residence.

This includes:

  • Compounds in flooring, furniture and drapes that give off fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, newer homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This provides increased energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants building up inside your home.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange contaminated interior air for cleaner exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
