What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday things may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Dayton residence.

This includes:

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

Though they are often more efficient, modern homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outdoor air out. This gives more energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause particles building up inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange dirty interior air for cleaner outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
