What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday products may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your Roanoke house.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [flooring, furniture and window treatments that let off fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This gives more energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger particles building up inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems swap out polluted indoor air for cleaner outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
