What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Orlando home.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles increasing inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange dirty interior air for fresher exterior air without giving up energy savings.
