What causes indoor air pollution?

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

This includes:

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

Though they are often more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outdoor air out. This offers better energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants building up inside your home.

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