What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may create poor indoor air quality in your Fort Lauderdale house.

This includes:

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

Though they are typically more efficient, modern homes don’t ventilate the way older houses do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles building up indoors.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace dirty inside air for more breathable exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
